Published by: Wydawnictwo Uniwersytetu Jagiellońskiego
Keywords: Cognitive Science
Summary/Abstract: What are the characteristic features and capabilities of hyperglots – people who speak more than six languages – that allow them to learn dozens of new languages so quickly and efficiently? Methods of learning, personality traits as well as possible neural correlates of multilingualism are compared and discussed. The main subjects of the analysis are five polyglots whose biographies are fairly well-known: Jean-Francois Champollion (1790–1832), Heinrich Schliemann (1822–1890), Emil Krebs (1867–1930), Andrzej Gawronski (1885–1927) and Robert Stiller (born 1928).
