There's a thought in neuroscience/psychological circles


"Thought" being the operative word here: There's a good argument to be made that language played an important role in the development of the modern brain, and we do know that intelligence is malleable - exposure to the right environment can make at least some people more intelligent.

I mean, it's compelling, it's a beautiful thought, but evidence - AFAIK - is a chain of factoids linked by optimistic assumptions.
