Abstract:

Linguists, biological anthropologists, and cognitive scientists come
together in this book to explore the origins and early evolution of
phonology, syntax, and semantics. They consider the nature of pre- and
proto-linguistic communication, the internal and external triggers
that led to its transformation into language, and whether and how
language may be considered to have evolved after its
inception. Evidence is drawn from many domains, including computer
simulations of language emergence, the songs of finches,
problem-solving abilities in monkeys, sign language, and the structure
of languages today.
