The Development of Language Skills in Bonobo and Chimpanzee--I. Comprehension.
Brakke, Karen E.; Savage-Rumbaugh, E. Sue
Language & Communication, v15 n2 p121-48 Apr 1995
This case study examined the development of language skills in a bonobo and a chimpanzee raised by human caregivers since infancy, focusing on the primates' ability to comprehend simple speech, understand referential symbol use, and engage in intentionally communicative routines. It is argued that comparative results from these primates can provide clues about the development of human language. (62 references) (MDM)
