 Linguistics 001 -- Lecture 25: Human and non-human communication
One clear evolutionary puzzle is why -- if communication systems are as useful as we generally think they are -- the rest of the animal kingdom seems to have put so little emphasis on elaborating them beyond this size of a few tens of hard-wired elements.
In addition, human communication -- by means of spoken language or in other ways -- seems to involve a much better-developed "theory of mind", involving more conplex and abstract models of others' knowledge, beliefs, intentions and goals, and much more complex and systematic use of these models to plan sequences of communicative acts.
At the same time, human facial expression, (aspects of) human "body language", and (aspects of) human voice modulation in speaking, seem quite similar in kind to animal displays, and indeed similar in detail in many cases to the expressions and gestures of other primates.
