In this chapter, on the basis of the previous ones, the authors discuss the limits of the applicability of biolinguistics as a Darwinian science. In particular, it excludes that biolinguistics is designed to specifically study the products of the language faculty. Since DBM deals with biological structures, we must exclude expertise in the history of grammar, syntax, vocabulary, etc., and cultural developments of the historical-natural languages from the DBM.

Abstract

In this chapter, on the basis of the previous ones, the authors discuss the limits of the applicability of biolinguistics as a Darwinian science. In particular, it excludes that biolinguistics is designed to specifically study the products of the language faculty. Since DBM deals with biological structures, we must exclude expertise in the history of grammar, syntax, vocabulary, etc., and cultural developments of the historical-natural languages from the DBM. From a functional point of view, biolinguistics should only deal with universal biological principles present in the cognitive linguistic procedures that result directly from verbal articulation. Basically, this chapter, will deal with ontogeny performance events and the pragmatic exercise of the language. © Springer International Publishing AG 2016.
