Evolution, communication and the proper function of language

In Peter Carruthers & A. Chamberlain (eds.), [Book Chapter] (in Press). Cambridge University Press. pp. 140--169 (2000)
Abstract
Language is both a biological and a cultural phenomenon. Our aim here is to discuss, in an evolutionary perspective, the articulation of these two aspects of language. For this, we draw on the general conceptual framework developed by Ruth Millikan (1984) while at the same time dissociating ourselves from her view of language.
