Palms Up … The Origin of Human Language?

Well, that may be too strong, but going palm up still sounds like a potentially important piece of the puzzle of the evolution of primate communication.  In today’s NY Times.

  1. I´m also a fervient supporter of theories of visuo-gestural communication as the transition step in the evolutionary origins of spoken language.
    Particularly, Adam Kendon´s book is outstanding.
    Recently, M. Tomasello and Josep Call have publised a book on gestures in apes and disccus some evolutionary theories of language pointing to gesture as the bootstrap to spoken language.
