Chimpanzee vocal communication: links to human language?

One of the key elements of human language is reference, with referential words allowing us to communicate about a multitude of objects and events. Katie Slocombe will present studies on March 30th 2015 at CogBio, focussed on the functionally referential food calls of chimpanzees in the wild. In addition Amanda Seed will go even further, she will present her studies of causality and control in primates and children. See the program here.
