Out of the mouths of babes . . . And beaks of birds? A broader interpretation of the frame/content theory for the evolution of speech production [Book Review]

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (4):526-527 (1998)
Abstract
Much of the material MacNeilage cites to support his frame/content theory for the evolution of speech production in humans is not unique to mammals. Parallels can be drawn for comparable evolution of vocal flexibility (specifically the reproduction of human speech) in birds. I describe several such parallels and conclude that MacNeilage's hypotheses may have broader application than he envisioned.
