In Pinker's words, the book tries to illuminate the nature of language and mind by choosing a single phenomenon and examining it from every angle imaginable. His analysis reflects his view that language and many other aspects of human nature are innate evolutionary-psychological adaptations. Most of the book examines studies of the form and frequency of grammatical errors in English (and to a lesser extent in German) as well as the speech of brain-damaged persons with selective aphasia.
