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.
This was distributed via the memetics list associated with the
Journal of Memetics - Evolutionary Models of Information Transmission
