More on VOX (via TIME Magazine):
The average person speaks 16,000 words per day. But what if women were limited to just 100? That is the premise of Vox, a forthcoming novel from the linguist Christina Dalcher. “Last year,” she says, “for a doomsday-themed contest, my inner linguist (who’s got a tremendously loud voice) suggested I imagine a world without language, which was terrifying, but not as terrifying as the next idea — where I imagined a world where only half of the population had language taken away from them.”
