Return of the Pirahã

A comparison of nonchalant innumeracy among the Pirahã of the Amazon with lack of statistical numeracy among newspaper readers and writers, at Language Log. The Pirahã appeared here earlier in "Thus I refute Chomsky."

A little more looking around reveals an earlier, more technical article at Language Log, Parataxis in Pirahã. Elmore Leonard—his syntax, anyway—makes an appearance.
