Edmund Blair Bolles (author of books including So Much to Say and Einstein Defiant: Genius versus Genius in the Quantum Revolution is the author of Babel's Dawn, a blog dedicated to the origins of speech. On this blog, Bolles, who authored a book with the same title, regularly posts about new research on the origins of language, alongside his own personal musings. For example, in one post Bolles reports on a study, recently published in Science, about the vocal cords of monkeys and about what this study can tell us about how humans developed language. In another recent entry, Bolles reflects on the fact that all major languages include a transitive clause. And in Bolles's most recent entry (as of this write-up), Bolles discusses the publication of Embodiment in Evolution and Culture, a new book that explores the role of the body and the senses in culture. Babel's Dawn provides readers with a great way to stay up-to-date on research and developments related to linguistics and related fields.
