(p.84) Chapter 5 Primate Vocal Communication
Primate Neuroethology

Robert M. Seyfarth

Oxford University Press

This chapter reviews current understanding of vocal communication in primates. It argues that primate communication calls convey information about both the caller's affective state, and objects and events in the world. This mixed referential signaling mechanism appears to be fundamentally social in nature and thus crucial for the representation of goals, intentions, and knowledge.

Keywords:   communication in primates, vocal perception, vocal production, referential signaling
