Abstract:

Vocalize-to-Localize? Meerkats do it for specific predators… And babies
point with their index finger toward targets of interest at about nine
months, well before using language-specific that-demonstratives. With
what-interrogatives they are universal and, as relativizers and
complementizers, play an important role in grammar construction. Some alarm
calls in nonhumans display more than mere localization: semantics and even
syntax. Instead of telling another monomodal story about language origin,
in this volume advocates of representational gestures, semantically
transparent, but with a problematic route toward speech, meet advocates of
speech, with a problematic route toward the lexicon. The present meeting
resulted in contributions by 23 specialists in the behaviour and brain of
humans, including comparative studies in child development and nonhuman
primates, aphasiology and robotics. The near future will tell us if the
present crosstalk - between researchers in auditory and in visual
communication systems - will lead to a more integrative framework for
understanding the emergence of babbling and pointing, two types of neural
control whose coordination could pave the way toward the word and syntax.

The contributions to this volume were previously published as
Interaction Studies 5:3 (2004) and 6:2 (2005).
