The Making of Language presents an alternative to the prevalent view of language as the product of human genetics. It argues instead that language originated in the cooperative activity of early humans. 'We made language, as we made pots and pans'. Mike Beaken shows how early forms of communication developed in step with technology, culture and social organisation. This edition considers also the significance of music in relation to other forms of communication. This thoroughly revised edition covers a wide range of disciplines and reflects relevant published research since the first edition appeared in 1996. Written clearly and free from jargon, it will be welcomed by anyone interested in the evolution and origin of language.
