This morning (Saturday, July 8), NPR broadcast the first in a series about
language.  This program dealt with Bonobos and their linguistic
communication with humans, and discussed (among other things) motivation
and social interaction as key factors in their language acquisition.  The
story can be found at

The next in the series will deal with people with autism and their
linguistic communication.
