Researchers Dr Nicolas James William Fay; Prof Simon Garrod

Brief description We do not know how language first arose (the event left no trace), but it can be studied by simulating the circumstances under which new languages arise today. By having people play a game where they create new communication systems from scratch, this project will illuminate the origin of human language.
