dc.description.abstractIt is widely assumed that long-distance dependencies between elements are a unique feature of human language. Here we review recent evidence of long-distance correlations in sequences produced by non-human species and discuss two evolutionary scenarios for the evolution of human language in the light of these findings. Though applying their methodological framework, we conclude that some of Hauser, Chomsky and Fitch's central claims on language evolution are put into question to a different degree within each of those scenarios.
