MEXT Grand-in-Aid for Scientific Research on Innovative Areas Evolinguistics: Integrative Studies of Language Evolution for Co-creative Communication

What is Evolinguistics?

  • With “hierarchy” and “intention sharing” as the two main conceptual grounds, we elucidate the mechanism of language evolution (co-creative language evolution) by integrating these two.
  • We advocate a future form of communication for continued existence of human beings.

The purpose of this project is to build and establish Evolinguistics as an interdisciplinary science of co-creative language evolution.


Evolutionary Linguistics

A scientific endeavor to elucidate when human language began under what kind of biological adaptation, how it took its present form through what kind of mechanism, and how it will change in the future.
