Instinctive Language.
Stokoe, William C.
Sign Language Studies, v83 p167-75 Sum 1994
"Patterns of the Mind," by Ray Jackendoff, and "The Language Instinct," by Steven Pinker, are reviewed. Each are written to support the theory that language is predetermined by genetically endowed brain structure but also include discussions of studies that use sign language to confirm the standard model of linguistic theory. (Contains seven references.) (LB)
