Language Evolution by Morten H. Christiansen

Book Description

How humans acquired language and how languages evolved are two of the most intriguing questions in contemporary scientific research. Answering them would throw new light on the process of evolution, the human brain, the structure of language, and what it means to be human. In this book researchers in cognitive science, anthropology, ethology, human biology, and linguistics say what they think about the origins of human language.
