About this book

Takes up the Darwinian case, using data seldom considered by psycholinguists and neurolinguists to argue that human language, though more sophisticated than all other forms of animal communication, is not a qualitatively different ability from all forms of animal communication, does not require a quantum evolutionary leap to explain it, and is not unified in a single `language instinct.'
