1 Burling, Robbins The Talking Ape - How Language Evolved
New York Oxford University Press 2005 0199279403 / 9780199279401 First Edition Hard Cover Fine Fine 
A Fine unmarked copy with Fine dustjacket. ix + 286 pages. In this fascinating, mind-opening book, Professor Burling not only presents the most convincing account of the origins of language yet published: he sheds new light on how language affects the way we think, behave, and relate to each other. He gives us a deeper understanding of the nature of language itself. Tracing language back to its earliest origins among our distant ape-like forbears several million years ago, he charts its growth to the time of our recent human ancestors. He offers a new account of the route by which we acquired our defining characteristic and explores the nature of language as it developed throughout the course of our evolution. **** NOT EX LIB ****
