Computational Models of Linguistic Evolution

06 Feb 2011 09:38

This notebook is for collecting references on computational, especially agent-based, models of the evolution of language. (Stories about how language came to evolve in the first place, out of pre-linguistic communication systems, are I think a largely distinct topic.) I actually have An Idea about some possibly interesting results here, but no time to pursue it at the moment.
