The aim of the present article is to analyse the publication „Modulare Architektur der menschlichen Sprachfähigkeit” by Barbara Sadownik, a professor of German at the University of Lublin. How is language represented mentally and neuronally? What processes take place in our minds when we produce and receive language, i.e., how do we acquire language? These questions about the nature of language ability, as well as the structure and function of language are central to interdisciplinary research in humanities and the natural sciences. The leitmotifs of this publication are modularity and holism, with the historical foray indicating that modularity, in particular, is to be taken as the key to understanding the architecture of human linguistic ability.
