Overview
A chimpanzee named Nim Chimpsky is raised from the age of two weeks to adulthood by human parents so they can study the development of language. Nim was born in 1973 and was raised in a caring human-household environment by scientists who are experts in language development. The study was partially an effort to prove that eminent linguist, Noam Chomsky, was incorrect in his theory that only human beings have the innate ability to develop language. Nim was able to communicate some concepts using simple American Sign Language. The results of the study are controversial. Documentary.
