The talking ape : how language evolved by Robbins Burling( )

35 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 2,551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, Robbins Burling not only presents the most convincing account of the origins of language yet published: he sheds new light on how language affects the way we think, behave, and relate to each other. He gives us a deeper understanding of the nature of language itself." "The author traces language back to its earliest origins among our distant ape-like forbears several million years ago and charts its growth to the time of our recent human ancestors. He offers a new account of the route by which we acquired our defining characteristic and explores the nature of language as it developed throughout the course of our evolution."--Jacket
