Every word is a bird we teach to sing : encounters with the mysteries and meanings of language by Daniel Tammet( Book )

8 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is vocabulary destiny? Why do clocks 'talk' to the Nahua people of Mexico? Will A.I. researchers ever produce true human-machine dialogue? In this mesmerizing collection of essays, Daniel Tammet answers these and many other questions about the intricacy and profound power of language. Tammet goes back in time to explore the numeric language of his autistic childhood; he looks at the music and patterns that words make, and how languages evolve and are translated. He meets one of the world's most accomplished lip readers in Canada, learns how endangered languages like Manx are being revived and corresponds with native speakers of Esperanto in their mother tongue. He studies the grammar of the telephone, contemplates the significance of disappearing dialects, and also asks: will chatbots ever manage to convince us that they are human? From the art of translation to the lyricism of sign language, "Every Word is a Bird We Teach to Sing" is a fascinating journey through the world of words, letters, stories and meanings, and an extraordinary testament to the stunning range of Tammet's literary and polyglot talents

13 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A journey into one of the most fascinating minds alive today--guided by its owner. Daniel Tammet sees numbers as shapes, colors, and textures, and he can perform extraordinary calculations in his head. He can learn new languages from scratch, in a week. He has savant syndrome, a rare condition that gives him almost unimaginable mental powers. But in one crucial way Daniel is not at all like the Rain Man: he is virtually unique among autistic people in that he is capable of living an independent life. He is even able to explain what is happening inside his head. Starting from early childhood, when he was incapable of making friends and prone to tantrums, to young adulthood, when he learned how to control himself and to live independently, fell in love, experienced a religious conversion to Christianity, and most recently, emerged as a celebrity.--From publisher description

Il nous entraîne à la rencontre des Nahuas, ces descendants des Aztèques qui forgent des mots à partir des bruits de la nature. Il raconte les péripéties de l'inventeur de l'espéranto et dialogue avec ceux dont c'est la langue maternelle. Il nous montre comment apprendre une langue étrangère de manière intuitive ou pourquoi l'apparition du téléphone a modifié notre façon de nous parler. De l'art de la traduction de la Bible à la poésie de la langue des signes, ces pages révèlent l'étonnant éventail des talents linguistiques et littéraires de l'auteur. [4e de couv.]

Islands of genius : the bountiful mind of the autistic, acquired, and sudden savant by Darold A Treffert( Book )

6 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Savant syndrome is a rare condition in which individuals with developmental disorders have one or more areas of expertise, ability, or brilliance -- "islands of genius" -- that exist in contrast with their overall limitations. In this fascinating book, Dr. Darold Treffert explores recently-discovered phenomena such as "genetic memory," the capacity of some individuals to "know" things they never learned, and "acquired savantism," instances in which a neuro-typical person unexpectedly and spectacularly develops savant-like abilities following a trauma such as a head injury or stroke. Above all, his message is that prodigy and genius should be celebrated and nurtured. This book is for clinicians, parents, teachers, therapists, and others who care for, and about, individuals with savant syndrome -- publisher description

Born on a blue day : inside the extraordinary mind of an autistic savant : a memoir by Daniel Tammet( )

4 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One of the world's fifty living autistic savants is the first and only to tell his compelling and inspiring life story-and explain how his incredible mind works. Worldwide, there are fewer than fifty living savants, those autistic individuals who can perform miraculous mental calculations or artistic feats (think Dustin Hoffman's character in Rain Man). Until now, none of them has ever been capable of discussing his or her thought processes, much less undertake the writing of a book. Daniel Tammet is the first. From childhood, Tammet's problems were immediately apparent. He was shunned by his classmates and often resorted to rocking and humming quietly. Yet he could memorize almost anything, and his math and language skills were astonishing. By the time he entered high school, Daniel was diagnosed as autistic, and he began to discover his own superhuman abilities-calculating huge sums in his head in seconds, learning new languages in one week, and memorizing more than 22,000 digits of pi. With heart-melting simplicity and astonishing self-awareness, Born on a Blue Day tells Daniel's story-from his childhood frustrations to adult triumphs-while explaining how his mind works. He thinks in pictures. He sees numbers as complex shapes; thirty-seven, for example, is lumpy like porridge, while eighty-nine reminds him of falling snow. Today, Daniel has emerged as one of the world's most fascinating minds and inspiring stories. While his brain has amazed scientists for years, everyone will be moved by this remarkable man's life story
