Bound for Specific Sounds: Vocal Predisposition in Animal Communication


Garcia, Maxime; Manser, Marta (2020). Bound for Specific Sounds: Vocal Predisposition in Animal Communication. Trends in Cognitive Sciences, 24(9):690-693.

Abstract

Mechanical constraints imposed by anatomical adaptations are a ubiquitous feature of animal sound production. They can give rise to ‘vocal predispositions’ (i.e., acoustic structures strictly determined by vocal anatomy). Such predispositions are crucial to the investigation of the cognitive and evolutionary processes underlying acoustic communication in vertebrates, including human speech.
