    Hi All.

    Have just read an interesting piece on the evolution of language.

    Amy Perfors (2002)

    Simulated Evolution of Language: a Review of the Field

    Journal of Artificial Societies and Social Simulation vol. 5, no. 2

    For some one who is not a linguist I gave, to my mind, a reasonable overview
    of language evolution, and the attempt to produce simulations of it.
    In particular the question of the innateness of language was addressed,
    along with communication and syntax. I haven't posted it as it is quite

    It mentions meme once.
