Book meme

Had a long an mostly unproductive day today, so thought I'd have a quick look at my flist and spotted this meme in pellegrina's and the_marquis's ljs... :-)

Grab the nearest book.
Open the book to page 23.
Find the fifth sentence.
Post the text of the sentence in your journal...
...along with these instructions.

"Our interest arises from the assertion that syntax is the most difficult aspect of language to derive plausibly from pre-human primate communication and cognitive systems - in this we agree with Lord Zuckerman (1991) and others (e.g. Bickerton, 1990; Wallman, 1992)."

From Armstrong, D.F., Stokoe, W. C. & Wilcox, S.E. (1995) Gesture and the Nature of Language Cambridge: Cambridge University Press.

I'm so tired this doesn't even make sense to me... but if I'd reached out with the other arm it would have been stats. ;-)
