Abstract:

Jenkins has succeeded in putting together a terrific volume. Some of the
most creative minds in the fields tackle questions of utmost importance in
biolinguistics. The clarity with which these essays are written and the
insights expressed in them are sure to provide solid foundations for
research in linguistics and related fields for years to come. A truly
outstanding collection!
