All Your Secrets

Little words are easily overlooked, but these tiny titans often play a significant role in language. Consider our much used (yet almost invisible) set of pronouns. Holding a conversation would be near impossible without them and confusion would reign. I, you, he, she, it, etc. work quietly in the background letting us know who we're talking to or with or about. They're also doing something else in the meantime. They're giving away our secrets.

Find out what they those secrets are in The Secret Life of Pronouns: What Our Words Say About Us by James Pennebaker.
