    Evolutionary Pressures Promoting Complexity in Navigation and Communication.Dimitar Kazakov & Mark Bartlett - 2013 - Interaction Studies 14 (1):107-135.
    This article presents results from simulations studying the hypothesis that mechanisms for landmark-based navigation could have served as preadaptations for compositional language. It is argued that sharing directions would significantly have helped bridge the gap between general and language-specific cognitive faculties. A number of different levels of navigational and communicative abilities are considered, resulting in a range of possible evolutionary paths. The selective pressures for, resp. against, increased complexity in either faculty are then evaluated for a range of environments. The (...)
