Place to discuss books dedicated to the science and art behind linguistics. Books to get started: >The Language Instinct (Pinker) >Symbolic Species (Deacon) >Lost Languages (Robinson) >An Introduction To Language (Fromkin, Rodman, Hyams) Feel free to ask for recommendations or leave suggestions.
>>328 I've never heard about these, but they sure sound interesting. Which one should I pick up first?
If you're simultaneously interested in general linguistics and Japanese specifically, this book is great. Beyond being an interesting look into the history of Japanese, I learned a lot that is applicable to modern Japanese as well, and often use this book as a resource when studying modern Japanese.
>>338 >being a weeb pathetic
>>340 >Being a one-language pony Badetic
>speaking Japanese makes you a weeb I bet you're more of a weeb than I am.
>>338 I own that book, seconding your recommendation
>>340 kek. where do you think you are, newfriend?
