    Investigating How Cultural Transmission Leads to the Appearance of Design Without a Designer in Human Communication Systems.Hannah Cornish - 2010 - Interaction Studies 11 (1):112-137.
    Recent work on the emergence and evolution of human communication has focused on getting novel systems to evolve from scratch in the laboratory. Many of these studies have adopted an interactive construction approach, whereby pairs of participants repeatedly interact with one another to gradually develop their own communication system whilst engaged in some shared task. This paper describes four recent studies that take a different approach, showing how adaptive structure can emerge purely as a result of cultural transmission through single (...)
