  • The words put into your brain are more diverse than the words coming out of it. You have only one life to tell – your own – while your co-humans make you listen to hundreds of different lives in different places and in different circumstances.

  • “Learning is easy . Our brains work like a computer with a really powerful word processor, so anything that you type in and ‘save’ will be stored in a file that can be accessed at a later date. The problem with most people, though, is that they tend to save their files in a ‘read only’ format, which means that they are unable to edit them in the future. In addition, many of these learning files are ‘locked’ inside the brain, and the password is so StRoNg77 that it is often forgotten. Unfortunately for us, our brain doesn't come equipped with an administrator to resend passwords, retrieve...

  • The pale Usher—threadbare in coat, heart, body, and brain; I see him now. He was ever dusting his old lexicons and grammars, with a queer handkerchief, mockingly embellished with all the gay flags of all the known nations of the world. He loved to dust his old grammars; it somehow mildly reminded him of his mortality. ‘While you take in hand to school others, and to teach them by what name a whale-fish is to be called in our tongue leaving out, through ignorance, the letter H, which almost alone maketh the signification of the word, you deliver that...

  • Recent advances in functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) offer a significant new approach to studying semantic representations in humans by making it possible to directly observe brain activity while people comprehend words and sentences. In this study, we investigate how humans comprehend adjective-noun phrases (e.g. strong dog) while their neural activity is recorded. Classification analysis shows that the distributed pattern of neural activity contains sufficient signal to decode differences among phrases. ...

  • Finally, a few words of caution. Vision is given a prominent position in aesthetics, often dominating the other senses. The present approach is similar in this, but it should be stressed that hearing, touch, smell, and even taste all are implicated in perceptual processing. The vision system in the brain is linked to the other sensory systems, which permits interaction at an early processing stage. At a later stage, visual information is integrated with other kinds of sensory information to produce multimodal perceptual experiences and mental imagery....

  • A preface rather induces a man to speak of himself, which is deemed the worst subject upon which he can speak. In history we become acquainted with things, but in a preface with the author; and, for a man to treat of himself, may be the most difficult talk of the two: for in history, facts are produced ready to the hand of the historian, which give birth to thought, and it is easy to cloath that thought in words. But in a preface, an author is obliged to forge from the brain, where he is sometimes known to...

  • How long does it take to learn another language? How many words do we need to learn? Are languages within the reach of everybody? Which teachers would we choose and which teachers should we avoid? These are some of the questions you ask yourself when you start learning a new language. The Word Brain provides the answers.

  • In order to get a clearer picture of language teaching and, consequently, of how to avoid bored and boring teachers, let’s address a list of the services teachers should provide. Traditionally, language teachers trained and checked six core competences: vocabulary, understanding of speech, production of speech, reading, writing, and grammar. As we have seen in the Words chapter, vocabulary training is inherently a lonely job because nobody except yourself can transfer thousands of words into your brain.

  • Do they have the faintest idea of how demanding it is to penetrate the dense thicket of high-speed human speech? Do they simply presage the thrill of discovering a new language? In summary, do they have an appropriate comprehension of the complications and implications of language learning? They probably don’t. So if your language classes in Paris, London, Berlin, or Seville, are meant to be more than meeting and mingling opportunities with people from all over the world, make sure that your teachers are polyglots. You wouldn’t want to learn sex with nuns and priests....

  • Being the heir of universe’s top luxury product is not the entire story, though. Unconscious reading, with your eyes flying over a text at speeds of almost a line per second, cannot be acquired in a few months. Instead, it takes decades of training to tune up your brain to high-speed reading. At present, you read faster than you did at the age of 20; at 20, you read faster than at 15; at 15 faster than at 10; at 10 faster than at 8, and so on. Reading only one hour every day exposes your brain to some 20,000 words, or 7 million words per...

  • There is another piece of good news. As you will see in the coming chapters, importing 5,000 to 15,000 new words into your brain in 500 to 1,500 hours turns out to be THE major battlefield in language learning, representing 60 to 80 percent of your total effort. In comparison, other aspects of language learning – grammar, pronunciation, etc. – are minor construction sites. If you are motivated and still willing to follow me, my first prescription would be that you start learning words on a daily basis, at least five days a week, and that you start now.

  • Based on your answers, good teachers are able to make a reliable estimate of the number of words you must transfer into your brain. This number varies between 5,000 and 15,000. Worst-case scenarios are languages that are completely different from any of the languages you know: for Europeans, typical examples are Hindi, Arabic, or Chinese. In these languages, only a handful of words resemble European words and leave you with 15,000 words on the table.

  • The background to this book is the climate of increasingly sophisticated technology that seems to be having an ever greater impact on our daily lives. In medicine, at work, in leisure, in politics we are noticing more and more the encroaching influence of computers, telecommunications and miniaturisation. Our phone systems, which remained relatively static for 60 years, are now the means by which we can send and receive words, moving pictures and sound internationally.

  • Second is the growth of the student's ability to visualize. The creative designer must be able to develop a mental image of that which he is inventing. The editor of the book Seeing with the Mind's Eye/41 by Samuels and Samuels, says in the preface: "... visualization is the way we think. Before words, images were. Visualization is the heart of the bio-computer. The human brain programs and self-programs through its images. Riding a bicycle, driving a car, learning to read, baking a cake, playing golf - all skills are acquired through the image making process.
