    Prelinguistic Evolution in Early Hominins: Whence Motherese?Dean Falk - 2004 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (4):491-503.
    In order to formulate hypotheses about the evolutionary underpinnings that preceded the first glimmerings of language, mother-infant gestural and vocal interactions are compared in chimpanzees and humans and used to model those of early hominins. These data, along with paleoanthropological evidence, suggest that prelinguistic vocal substrates for protolanguage that had prosodic features similar to contemporary motherese evolved as the trend for enlarging brains in late australopithecines/early Homo progressively increased the difficulty of parturition, thus causing a selective shift toward females that (...)

    The “Putting the Baby Down” Hypothesis: Bipedalism, Babbling, and Baby Slings.Dean Falk - 2004 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (4):526-534.
    My responses to the observations and criticisms of 26 commentaries focus on the coregulated and affective nature of initial mother/infant interactions, the relationship between motherese and emergent linguistic skills and its implication for hominin evolution, the plausibility of the “putting the baby down” hypothesis, and details about specific neurological substrates that may have formed the basis for the evolution of prelinguistic behaviors and, eventually, protolanguage.

    Prelinguistic Evolution in Hominin Mothers and Babies: For Cryin' Out Loud!Dean Falk - 2004 - Behavioral and Brain Sciences 27 (4):461-462.
    Unlike chimpanzees, human infants engage in persistent adult-directed (AD) crying, and human mothers produce a special form of infant-directed vocalization, known as motherese. These complementary behaviors are hypothesized to have evolved initially in our hominin ancestors in conjunction with the evolution of bipedalism, and to represent prelinguistic substrates that paved the way for the eventual emergence of protolanguage.
