How Much of Language, If Any, Came About in the Same Sort of Way as the Brooding Chamber in Snails?
Botha, Rudolf P.
Language & Communication, v21 n3 p225-43 Jul 2001
Critically assesses the merits and limitations of four conceptions of language genesis. Focuses on the conception that language, like the brooding chamber in certain snail species, came about through cooption as a by-product of something else. (Author/VWL)
