Världens dåligaste språk : tankar om språket och människan idag

Världens dåligaste språk : tankar om språket och människan idag - Fredrik Lindström It's a bit of a shame that the writer - even though there's a warning in the foreword - got tempted to make 'scientific' statements here and there (for example things like "language is the only difference between humans and animals" and certain statements about a child's language acquisition) without references and that have just no solid scientific base right now (let alone 12 years ago). A bit of an anti-climax in an otherwise endearing "our language isn't so bad at all" plea for the Swedish language and an encouragement to be more accepting of changes in language instead of being rigid spell checkers.
