If Chomsky s discontinuity view lies on an end of a spectrum this book argues for an idea that lies on the opposite end I appreciate that the arguments put forward in this book are experimentally backed which leaves little room for conceptual proposals It s good to read about opposing views on language evolution I have read a great deal of what the formalists had to say about this matter and I started my reading list on the functionalists view with this book I was hoping that this book would address generativists argument against the continuity theory which this book adopts For example generativists claim that communicative efficiency loses out to computational efficiency as observed in the universal property of displacement Generativists claim that the property of displacement taxes cognitive resources that are otherwise available and hence if language had evolved only to serve as a communicative tool we would expect linguistic operations to be performed with a minimal demand of cognitive resources I guess it s the reader s job to connect the dots
