There are between 5,000 and 8,000 distinct living languages spoken in the world today that are characterized by both exceptional diversity as well as significant similarities. Many researchers believe that at least part of this ability to communicate with language arises from a uniquely human Faculty of Language (c.f. Hauser, Chomsky, & Fitch, 2002; Pinker & Jackendoff, 2005).
