“Charming and erudite," from the author of Enlightenment Now, "The wit and insight and clarity he brings . . . is what makes this book such a gem.” —Time.com Why is so much writing so bad, and how can we make it better? Is the English language being corrupted by texting and social media? Do the kids today even care about good writing—and why should we care? From the author of The Better Angels of Our Nature and Enlightenment Now. In this entertaining and eminently practical book, the cognitive scientist, dictionary consultant, and New York Times–bestselling author Steven Pinker rethinks the usage guide for the twenty-first century. Using examples of great and gruesome modern prose while avoiding the scolding tone and Spartan tastes of the classic manuals, he shows how the art of writing can be a form of pleasurable mastery and a fascinating intellectual topic in its own right. The Sense of Style is for writers of all kinds, and for readers who are interested in letters and literature and are curious about the ways in which the sciences of mind can illuminate how language works at its best.

Dieter Hillert untersucht, wie Bausteine der sprachlichen Evolution diskutiert werden können und wie sich diese in Bezug auf den modernen Menschen entwickelt haben. Insbesondere die hier vorgestellten neuronalen Kartierungsmethoden ermöglichen, wichtige Ergebnisse über die neuronalen Schaltkreise zu gewinnen, die an der Sprachverarbeitung beteiligt sind. Der Autor verdeutlich zudem kortikale Kartierungen sowohl bei typischem und als auch bei atypischem Sprachverhalten. Entsprechend wird aus diesen angesprochenen Perspektiven besprochen, wie sich unser Sprachvermögen evolutionär entwickelten hat, um beispielsweise Ideen, Gefühle, Ziele und Humor lautsprachlich vermitteln zu können. Das vorgestellte evolutionäre Sprachmodell beruht auf den kognitiven Fähigkeiten unserer biologischen Vorahnen.

Bohane ist ein heimtückischer, mörderischer, intriganter Ort – und verdammt sexy. Eine Stadt voll brutaler Killer und Ganoven. Das Buch erzählt von einem Bandenführer, dessen Herrschaft zu Ende geht, und ist anders als alles, was Sie zuvor gelesen haben. Ein Buch für alle, die eine grellbunte, vergnügte Zeit verbringen wollen. Die einst bedeutende Stadt Bohane an der irischen Westküste liegt darnieder. Es herrschen Gewalt und Chaos, die Clans sind gespalten. Auch wenn noch ein wenig vom alten Glanz geblieben ist, findet das eigentliche Leben in den Slums und verwahrlosten Wohnblocks von Smoketown statt. Scheinbar seit Ewigkeiten steht alles unter der Kontrolle von Logan Hartnett, dem adretten Paten der Hartnett-Fancy-Gang. Aber es liegt Ärger in der Luft. Gerüchte gehen um, dass Logans Erzfeind Gant Broderick nach fünfundzwanzig Jahren zurück in der Stadt ist, und seine Schergen entwickeln auf einmal ihren ganz eigenen Ehrgeiz. Logans bessere Hälfte drängt ihn, alles aufzugeben und sich zurückzuziehen. Doch da kennt die Missus ihren Langen Lulatsch schlecht.
