“Language impairment gene” does not necessarily equate to “language gene”

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 29 (3):301-301 (2006)
Abstract
The finding of the same language deficit in half the members of the KE family is taken as suggesting that a specific allele (FOXP2) is normally involved in the development of language. Recent studies, however, question the exclusivity of FOXP2, and it is argued that the finding of a gene that disrupts language should not be taken as strong evidence for the existence of genes that underlie it.
