Sigh... Could not really get into this. Interesting premise well defended but enuff awreddy. I see language as art and squirm when it goes under the microscope. Made for vigorous book club discussion but we never answered the question, "If language is genetic, why do so many children fail elementary school grammar?" Hmmmm.
