Babel's Dawn

If you're interested in the origins of language, check out Babel's Dawn, a newish blog devoted to the subject—or rather, to "the origins of speech", a distinction the blog's author Edmund Blair Bolles defends in his inaugural post.  See also his discussion of the controversy about starlings learning recursive grammars (which I wrote about here).  In that post, he mentions an aspect of the debate I hadn't heard about: Chomsky apparently responded to a question about the controversy emailed to him by a blogger on MySpace.

[Babel's Dawn actually began about a month and a half ago, but I'm just now catching up with my blog-related email, very late as usual.  Apologies all around.]

I am The Tensor, and I approve this post.
