    Temporal Structure in Emerging Language: From Natural Data to Silent Gesture.Marieke Schouwstra - 2017 - Cognitive Science 41 (S4):928-940.
    Many human languages have complex grammatical machinery devoted to temporality, but very little is known about how this came about. This paper investigates how people convey temporal information when they cannot use any conventional languages they know. In a laboratory experiment, adult participants were asked to convey information about simple events taking place at a given time, in spoken language and in silent gesture. It was shown that in spoken language, participants formed utterances according to the rules of their native (...)

  8. Investigating Word Order Emergence: Constraints From Cognition and Communication.Marieke Schouwstra, Danielle Naegeli & Simon Kirby - 2022 - Frontiers in Psychology 13.
    How do cognitive biases and mechanisms from learning and use interact when a system of language conventions emerges? We investigate this question by focusing on how transitive events are conveyed in silent gesture production and interaction. Silent gesture experiments have been used to investigate cognitive biases that shape utterances produced in the absence of a conventional language system. In this mode of communication, participants do not follow the dominant order of their native language, and instead condition the structure on the (...)
