The #1 …….. (book on language)

Number One** Not your ordinary, endless list – just what’s number 1.

Let’s not beat around the bush – no question: Thought and LanguageLev Vygotsky

This book is the “Origin of Species” for language. A collosus. It has everything a mind interested in language could imagine. Originality, nuance, suggestion, intelligence, research… ……

My favorite chapter without a doubt is Chapter 7 – Thought and Word. Read it online HERE. More resources HERE.

I’ll end with a few gems from this Slavic soul…..

“A word devoid of thought is a dead thing, and a thought unembodied in words remains a shadow.”

“Through others we become ourselves.”

The teacher must orient his work not on yesterday’s development in the child but on tomorrow’s.
