Humans Are Pre-Wired For Langugage

This is truly amazing: Deaf Kids in Nicaragua Give Birth to New Language. It is looking more and more like humans are pre-wired for language. It would seem that all children are some form of "madlib" just waiting (or not) for someone to fill in the linguistic blanks, but with all the rules of how to use them already in place.
