With books like Our Magnificent Bastard Tongue, Losing the Race, and The Power of Babel, Columbia University professor John McWhorter has established himself as one of the most entertaining linguists alive. His latest safari into the strange world of language confirms what his faithful readers already know: The liveliness of his discourse actually enhances the forcefulness of his insights. What Language Is functions as a post-college tutorial on an elusive subject always close at hand. Editor's recommendation.
