This blog is mentioned in the book review section.
Mr. Erard writes a great deal about language and in fact has a book coming out in 2012 entitled Babel No More: The Search for the World’s Most Extraordinary Language Learners. Should be very interesting! Now that is my kind of book.
It is about the superhuman feats of hyperpolyglots, the Steve Austins and Jaime Sommerses of language learners. I am by comparison a mere bumbler-alonger; fortunately for me, I enjoy bumbling.
