The Language Imperative: The Power of Language to Enrich Your Life and Expand Your Mind


Many of us view language as a tool, a means by which to communicate our thoughts and emotions. But is there more to language than just "talk"? Can learning languages actually change the way you think? In "The Language Imperative," best-selling author and linguistic scholar Suzette Haden Elgin examines the power of language to shape our lives. She confronts some of the most pressing issues parents and educators face today: Is it a good or bad idea for Americans to have command of more than one language? Should learning languages be a luxury for only the rich? Or should it be a goal of the public educational system as well? Based on solid science and filled with personal insights, "The Language Imperative" is required reading for anyone interested in how words shape our lives, both as individuals and as a nation.
