Abstract:

The question of how language emerged is one of the most fascinating and
difficult problems in science. In recent years, a strong resurgence of
interest in the emergence of language from an evolutionary perspective has
been helped by the convergence of approaches, methods, and ideas from several
disciplines. The selection of contributions in this volume highlight scenarios
of language origin and the prerequisites for a faculty of language based on
biological, historical, social, cultural, and paleontological forays into the
conditions that brought forth and favored language emergence, augmented by
insights from sister disciplines. The chapters all reflect new speculation,
discoveries and more refined research methods leading to a more focused
understanding of the range of possibilities and how we might choose among
them. There is much that we do not yet know, but the outlines of the path
ahead are ever clearer.
