English Teacher Article Steven Pinker on Language & Thought

| | 4 Comments

I've just found the following video in which Steven Pinker looks at language, and the way it expresses the workings of our minds. By analysing common sentences and words, he shows us how, in what we say and how we say it, we're communicating much more than we realise.

I'd appreciate knowing the source of this video file? There are a few others involving Pinker on the Internet Archive site, if you're interested.

Still wondering where the video came from and if there are more. I'm a Pinker fan and teacher trainer who likes to use video. Thanks.

Pity this video isn't complete. It breaks off in the original at the TED site too.
However there is a similar one on YouTube at :
