Title: The Evolution of Human Language
Subtitle: Biolinguistic Perspectives
Edited By: Richard K Larson
Viviane Déprez
Hiroko Yamakido
Description:

The way language as a human faculty has evolved is a question that
preoccupies researchers from a wide spread of disciplines. In this book, a
team of writers has been brought together to examine the evolution of
language from a variety of such standpoints, including language's genetic
basis, the anthropological context of its appearance, its formal structure,
its relation to systems of cognition and thought, as well as its possible
evolutionary antecedents. The book includes Hauser, Chomsky, and Fitch's
seminal and provocative essay on the subject, 'The Faculty of Language,'
and charts the progress of research in this active and highly controversial
field since its publication in 2002. This timely volume will be welcomed by
researchers and students in a number of disciplines, including linguistics,
evolutionary biology, psychology, and cognitive science.
