Adaptation to moving targets: Culture/gene coevolution, not either/or

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 31 (5):511-512 (2008)
We agree that much of language evolution is likely to be adaptation of languages to properties of the brain. However, the attempt to rule out the existence of language-specific adaptations a priori is misguided. In particular, the claim that adaptation to cannot occur is false. Instead, the details of gene-culture coevolution in language are an empirical matter
