Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The leading scholars in the rapidly growing field of language evolution give readable accounts of their theories on the origins of language and reflect on the most important current issues and debates. As well as providing a guide to their own published research in this area they highlight what they see as the most relevant research of others. The authors come from a wide range of disciplines involved in language evolution including linguistics, cognitive science, computational science, primatology, and archaeology.

Synopsis:

How humans acquired language and how languages evolved are two of the most intriguing questions in contemporary scientific research. The essays in this volume discuss the subject.
