Series Title: Advances in Interaction Studies 1
Description:

After a long period where it has been conceived as iconoclastic and almost
forbidden, the question of language origins is now at the centre of a rich
debate, confronting acute proposals and original theories. Most
importantly, the debate is nourished by a large set of experimental data
from disciplines surrounding language. The editors of the present book have
gathered researchers from various fields, with the common objective of
taking as seriously as possible the search for continuities from
non-human primate vocal and gestural communication systems to human speech
and language, in a multidisciplinary perspective combining ethology,
neuroscience, developmental psychology and linguistics, as well as computer
science and robotics. New data and theoretical elaborations on the
emergence of referential communication and language are debated here by
some of the most creative scientists in the world.
