The Story of the Human Language

A few weeks ago, I started flipping through a catalog at my parents' house and realized that it featured audio recordings of college-level courses on a variety of topics. I was most interested in one entitled, "The Story of the Human Language," but it cost over fifty dollars per course. So I did what I normally do in such circumstances, I got on the Clark County Library website, found the cd at a Las Vegas library, and requested it.
The course is really interesting and explains how language began and evolved, among other topics. I've been listening to the lectures while I do housework, but I may move it to the car, so my kids can listen (whether they want to or not) to it. I've really enjoyed it so far and can't wait to learn more. Who knew cleaning toilets and folding laundry could be so intellectually stimulating??!!

p.s. I meant to put this one on my personal website at Oh well...
