...contains something about (almost) everything you ever wanted to know about language acquisition.
—The Quarterly Review of Biology
...provocative mix that brings together many useful articles....quite worthwhile readings.
The twenty chapters in this book represent a wonderful set of topics related to complex questions of the phylogeny and ontogeny of language....most are focused, in-depth reviews of specific areas of research from recent years, and they give the reader a fine sense of being brought up to date and set straight.
...an impressive group of researchers have put their cognitive potential to the task of improving our understanding of the ontogeny and evolution of human language....if you are interested in seeing how linguists incorporate evolutionary theory into their own conceptual framework, and how comparative psychologists attempt to tackle the proclaimed uniqueness of human language, then this is a book well worth reading.
—American Journal of Primatology
