Selfish Sounds and Linguistic Evolution: A Darwinian Approach to Language Change

Selfish Sounds and Linguistic Evolution: A Darwinian Approach to Language Change by Nikolaus Ritt
English | July 5, 2004 | ISBN: 0521826713 | 342 Pages | PDF | 3 MB

This new perspective on language change looks at a number of developments in the history of sounds and words and explains them in terms of Darwin's evolutionary theory. Nikolaus Ritt demonstrates how the constituents of language can be regarded as mental patterns, or "memes", which copy themselves from one brain to another when communication and language acquisition occur. Challenging established models of linguistic competence, Ritt's controversial approach will stimulate debate among evolutionary biologists, cognitive scientists and linguists.

Current thinking in evolutionary biology holds that competition among individuals is the key to understanding natural selection. When competition exists, it is obvious that conflict arises; the emergence of cooperation, however, is less straightforward and calls for in-depth analysis. Much research is now focused on defining and expanding the evolutionary models of cooperation.

Cultural Evolution by Kate Distin
English | 2010 | ISBN 0521769019 , 0521189713 | PDF | 280 pages | 1,3 MB

In this book, Kate Distin proposes a theory of cultural evolution and shows how it can help us to understand the origin and development of human culture. Distin introduces the concept that humans share information not only in natural languages, which are spoken or signed, but also in artefactual languages like writing and musical notation, which use media that are made by humans.
