Dr Dolittle had it wrong, says the author of this fascinating book: animals cannot use language. Stephen Anderson explains the difference between communication and language, and shows that animals do not have the cognitive capacities necessary to acquire language.
A masterly overview of what is currently known about the communicative abilities of a wide range of creatures... Anderson's synthesis provides illuminating comparisons with the infinitely more sophisticated resources of the human language. An elegant book. Neil Smith, Nature "Well-written, well-argued, and provocative... I enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone interested in animal communication and the evolution of language." Marc Bekoff, Quarterly Review of Biology"
