An evolutionary model for the learning of language

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 21 (4):530-530 (1998)
Abstract
This commentary deals with the relation between human language and nonverbal signals used by nonhuman primates. It suggests that human language could have developed through the interaction of procedural learning with a preexisting system for socio-affective communication. The introduction of “content” into existing “frames” requires a neurobiologically plausible learning mechanism.
