Dr. Mike Beaken updates the first edition of The Making of Language in order to address the changing scene in the study of language. In the second edition, he explains how the past few decades have given archaeology, anthropology, psychology, and even musicology, let alone linguistics, reason to understand and investigate the factors involved in the origin of language use and languages themselves. Among the revisions between the first and second editions are changes in accepted ideas regarding the origins of language including the belief that behavior and language are related in human beings, that animal and human communication is not as different as once believed, and that language development was likely a long and grueling evolution rather than a sudden phenomenon.
