Great talk. After watching a talk on fora I ask myself "what did I learn for this talk" and usually I can think of one or two points that are really worth remembering. For think one I can think of at least six, and I'm sure that I have forgot some. I have to watch this again some day!

This lecture was as entertaining as it was enlightening. I especially liked Pinker's comments on the use of swear words to elicit emotional responses.

Steven Pinker is Brilliant. He explores the use of linguistics in such a complicated but simple manner as well. He probes into the psychology of words in the common world. The connection between language and mind is quite intriguing.

This is an eye-opening, and entertaining speech. It shows the viewer the uses of language and idiomatic speech. Show more speeches like this, this can engage the viewer with the ideal of knowledge.
