  1. Awesome. Potentially a clash of the evolutionary linguistic titans with the Pinker and Deacon papers.

    Having quickly scanned Pinker’s paper, I came across this gem: “The theory of the cognitive niche, I believe, has several advantages as an explanation of the evolution of the human mind. It incorporates facts about the cognitive, affective, and linguistic mechanisms discovered by modern scientific psychology rather than appealing to vague, prescientific black boxes like ‘symbolic behavior’ or ‘culture’”.

    … Let the battle commence.
