Think on KERA

What makes a language genuine and how is the accelerating rate of linguistic change affecting the ongoing debate over how we communicate? We’ll talk this hour with renowned linguist, author and educator John McWhorter whose new book is “What Language Is: And What It Isn’t and What It Could Be” (Gotham Books, 2011).
