From the outside looking in? Oct 19, 2013

Surprisingly, only one idea here seemed to hold water, and even then, I found the concept of "hyperpolyglots" as explained by the reporting writers rather simplistic. It's like taking a head count of languages and using a faulty denominator. Trawling the web, I found a more reasonable consideration about Romance languages not really counting because they were all closely related. Which leads me to the question, is there at all a solid basis for studying the human language apparatus this way? I'm pretty sure Grimm would've had second thoughts... but don't mind me, I'm just a polly.
