The Search for the World's Most Extraordinary Language Learners (2012) chronicles my quest to understand the linguistic gifts and mental powers of hyperpolyglots from the past and present.
Slips, Stumbles, and Verbal Blunders, and What They Mean (2007) explores the science of "uh," "um," slips of the tongue, pauses, the "tip of the tongue" phenomenon, and more.
I'll be at Yale University on January 30, 2015.
