Book Announcement: Emergence of Communication and Language


Emergence of Communication and Language
Edited by Caroline Lyon, Chrystopher L. Nehaniv and Angelo Cangelosi
Springer 2007, 438 pages, hard cover
ISBN 1-84628-491-0

From the back cover:
Old questions on the origins of language and communication are illuminated here in new, state-of-the-art research. This volume brings together studies from diverse disciplines, showing how they can inform and stimulate each other. It includes work in linguistics, psychology, neuroscience, anthropology and computer science. New empirical work is reported on both human and animal communication, using some novel techniques that have only recently become workable.

A principal theme is the importance of studies involving artificial agents, their contribution to the body of knowledge on the emergence of communication and language, and the role of simulations in exploring some of the most significant issues.

Worldwide contributors to this volume include influential figures in the
field, delivering essential reading for researchers in the area, as well as
providing fascinating insights for a wider readership.
