If you haven't see it already, I am sure you'll like
RSA Animate - Language as a Window into Human Nature where “Steven Pinker shows us how the mind turns the finite building blocks of language into infinite meanings”.

Licia - Thank you for sharing. I had not seen the RSA Animate version of the lecture. It is outstanding.
