The Language of the Piraha
BBC Radio 4, The Material World, 22/jun/2006. "[…] Prof. Everett believes that the Piraha language doesn't conform to Noam Chomsky's theory of Universal Grammar: the idea that all languages share the same principles of grammar. Ian Roberts, Professor of Linguistics at the University of Cambridge, isn't convinced by this. Quentin Cooper chairs as they debate the theory."
