The final chapter addresses several issues that appear to contradict the claims of the interactional instinct hypothesis (data from Williams syndrome and mental retardation that are thought to provide evidence for autonomous grammar; differences in socialization across cultures). It also addresses phenomena that appear consonant with the hypothesis (the pedagogical stance; the evolution of prodynorphin regulation; the interactional proclivities of other animals).

Keywords:   interactional instinct, Williams syndrome, autonomous grammar, socialization, pedagogical stance, prodynorphin regulation
