Abstract:

Communication is a basic behaviour, found across animalspecies. Human language is often thought of as a uniquesystem, which separates humans from other animals. Thistextbook serves as a guide to different types of communication,and suggests that each is unique in its own way: human verbaland nonverbal communication, communication in nonhumanprimates, in dogs and in birds. Research questions andfindings from different perspectives are summarized andintegrated to show students similarities and differences in therich diversity of communicative behaviours.

A core topic is how young individuals proceed from not being able tocommunicate to reaching a state of competent communicators,and the role of adults in this developmental process.

Evolutionary aspects are also taken into consideration, andideas about the evolution of human language are examined.The cross-disciplinary nature of the book makes it useful forcourses in linguistics, biology, sociology and psychology, but itis also valuable reading for anyone interested in understandingcommunicative behaviour.
