Beyond prosody and infant-directed speech: Affective, social construction of meaning in the origins of language
Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (4):515-515 (2004)
|Abstract||Our starting point for the origins of language goes beyond prosody or infant-directed speech to highlight the affective, multimodal, and co-constructed nature of meaning-making that was likely present before the split between African great apes and hominins. Analysis of vocal and gestural caregiving practices in hominins, and of meaning-making via gestural interaction in African great apes, supports our thesis.|
