Don't Believe A Word
Reviewed by TGHQ's Rhiannon Batsford
In a world where “fun facts” can be found easily throughout the internet, there are of course those who want to prove these facts wrong. On its surface, that’s what this book is about – debunking nine popular myths about language as a concept. However, the way in which each of these myths are deconstructed allows for a deeper exploration into how languages have developed over time and some of the more important linguistic studies which have shed light on something we all use but perhaps don’t think about as much as we might.
