Continuity, displaced reference, and deception

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (4):510-511 (2004)
Abstract
Falk's contribution to a continuity theory of the origins of language would be complemented by an account of the origins of displaced reference, a key characteristic distinguishing human language from animal signaling systems. Because deception is one situation in which nonhumans may use signals in the absence of their referents, deception may have been the starting point for displaced reference.
