Vocal Communication of Humans and Nonhuman Primates
TOPIC
Present a comparin” rel=”nofollow”>ing-and-contrastin” rel=”nofollow”>ing analysis of human language and the vocal communicationof nonhuman primates. Specifically, you should analyze how vocal communication systems of humans and nonhuman primates are similar and different in” rel=”nofollow”>in terms of:(1) production mechanism (anatomy and physiology)(2) repertoires (types of signals and range of meanin” rel=”nofollow”>ings that the signals convey); and (3) underlyin” rel=”nofollow”>ing cognitive abilities (grammar, referentiality, in” rel=”nofollow”>intentionality, theory of min” rel=”nofollow”>ind, etc.). Of these, question (3) should be your primary emphasis and take up a majority of both space and focus in” rel=”nofollow”>in your essay. One of the key questions in” rel=”nofollow”>in the study of human language considers which aspects of language are uniquely human and which may be considered part of our primate heritage (see Zuberbuhler 2012). This is a difficult question, on which there is no consensus in” rel=”nofollow”>in the scientific community. You will address this by focusin” rel=”nofollow”>ing on cognitive aspects of communication.Regardin” rel=”nofollow”>ing questions (2) and (3), we will not have extensive class discussion of these with regard to human language use. Regardin” rel=”nofollow”>ing question (2), we take it as given that human languages are capable of producin” rel=”nofollow”>ing an unlimited variety of utterances and conveyin” rel=”nofollow”>ing a full range of meanin” rel=”nofollow”>ings, in” rel=”nofollow”>intentions, and emotions (cf. Pin” rel=”nofollow”>inker, Ch. 2). Regardin” rel=”nofollow”>ing question (3), you can use what you know about your own language use and your own experiences. However, do not go in” rel=”nofollow”>into lengthy discussion of human language. The focus should be on nonhuman primates for these questions.
GUIDELINES
Essays are assessed not only for content, but also for grammar, clarity, conciseness, and coherence. Strive to make your essays accurate, relevant and organized, and use academic English. Your writin” rel=”nofollow”>ing should demonstrate an understandin” rel=”nofollow”>ing of key scientific terms related to sound and communication, with accurate use of relevant technical terms such as amplitude, spectrum, conspecific, heterospecific, etc. You might thin” rel=”nofollow”>ink of this as writin” rel=”nofollow”>ing a short article directed towards an educated layperson, and it should read as a prose essay, not a lab report outlin” rel=”nofollow”>inin” rel=”nofollow”>ing observations. The purpose is to assess your writin” rel=”nofollow”>ing skills in” rel=”nofollow”>in addition to your understandin” rel=”nofollow”>ing of the material presented in” rel=”nofollow”>in class.For source material, you may draw on a mix of course lectures, videos, and assigned readin” rel=”nofollow”>ings, but to earn full credit, you must in” rel=”nofollow”>include material from (and cite) at least two articles from the course readin” rel=”nofollow”>ings. No outside sources are required, though you are certain” rel=”nofollow”>inly welcome to draw on other research materials if you like. There is no need to provide citations for material you

draw from lectures, unless the material origin” rel=”nofollow”>inated from one of the readin” rel=”nofollow”>ings or videos. Properly cite these and any other data drawn from course readin” rel=”nofollow”>ings and videos. (You may use the formalcitation style of your choice, so long as you are consistent and the source and page number of the material is made clear. If you do use additional sources, be sure to cite them and provide full bibliographical entries.) Otherwise, as with any academic writin” rel=”nofollow”>ing, your work must be your own and in” rel=”nofollow”>in your own words.
FORMATTING AND SUBMISSION
