Syntax and Language Origins.
King, Barbara J.
Language & Communication, v16 n2 p193-203 1996
Maintains that language as humans now produce and comprehend evolved from languagelike precursors in the communication systems of nonhuman primates. The article reviews "Gesture and the Nature of Language" (GNL) (1995) and notes that GNL derives syntax incrementally without diluting it to an element not recognizable as a property of language.
