  1. The one by Poythress looks interesting. It’s hard to judge on the basis of the publisher’s blurb & sample excerpts but it will be a pleasant surprise if it manages to be both useful theologically and meaningful to a mainstream linguist. Just to expose one of the chips on my shoulder, I haven’t really ever come across much in the way of reformed literature that engages with or shows much awareness of current thought in linguistics. Not that current thought in linguistics is the be all and end all, but there’s a certain sense of being out of touch which is a bit disappointing. Shouldn’t be too harsh without reading the book though i suppose!

    • Oh, hang on – i’ve just looked at the sample pages and am puzzled. In a deep & serious way :) I feel a blogpost coming on.

  2. Hello, Cath – good to hear from you, and always a pleasure to provoke you! We never shy from exposing the chipped shoulders of grouchy linguists. Drop us a link when you post your thoughts, and we shall be sure to follow them up, and then decide whether or not Mr P’s book is worthy of our time and thought.

  3. […] book out – In the Beginning was the Word: Language – a God-Centred Approach (thanks to Jeremy Walker for flagging it […]

  4. Chips duly exposed!

    Any thoughts would be appreciated – the tone is probably more dogmatic than my actual position!
