Radiolab, "Words"

I had my mind thoroughly blown by this entire amazing Radiolab episode called "Words," and I totally recommend it to everyone who has ever had even a passing interest in language.

Possibly the most mind-blowing segment of the show, to me at least, was this one about the way a language developed over the course of a couple of generations of deaf kids in Nicaragua. I guarantee you will be fascinated and surprised.
