The Stuff of Thought
Language as A Window Into Human NatureBook - 2007
From the critics
Coarse Language: In the chapter The Seven Words You Can't Say on Television, Pinker analyzes the universalities of swearing. As he points out, profanity is highly emotion-laden; I suppose some might be offended at some of the content of the chapter. (Of course, they'd probably most benefit from reading it...) This chapter features one of the most oddly humorous footnotes I've encountered in a science book.
