This chapter discusses the way people speak and how they put together sentences. The evolution of language is explained as well. Learning how to speak as children is one topic addressed I find interesting. Beginning with "babbling" noises to learning how to form words is described in this chapter. My niece is in the process of learning how to speak; therefor, I look forward on learning how her brain is going about it. Another fascinating topic mentioned is bilingualism. This topic strikes me particularly because my best friend is from Russia and she switches between English and Russian while speaking to her family all the time. I look forward to learning how the brain can do this. Chapter 8 also addresses the issue of trying to teach nonhuman animals the human language. Imagine if we could communicate with animals in that way. As I child, I had always wished I could converse with my cats, but unfortunately it cannot happen. I also find the topic on speed reading interesting as well. I have always felt as though I am kind of a slow reader. I have tried numerous methods on trying to speed up my reading pace, but then I find comprehending everything I read more difficult. Chapter 8 explains why this is true, which intrigues me seeing I have this problem.
