A-Duck-in-a-Tree-2013-03-09-_-The-Moment-Before-the-Word-layout-1400.jpg

The 35th of a weekly series of radio programmes created by :zoviet*france: for Basic.fm.

First broadcast 9 March 2013.

The playlist for this week’s show was put together while walking along a path suggested by the scientific paper, ‘The emergence of hierarchical structure in human language’.

Based on research by its authors, Shigeru Miyagawa, Robert C Berwick and Kazuo Okanoya, this describes how human language may have developed in part from the same evolutionary origins as birdsong.
