Parental antagonism theory of language evolution

The Parental Antagonism Theory of Language Evolution: Preliminary Evidence for the Proposal Please find attached a paper I have written presenting a new theory for language evolution (called “parental antagonism theory”). It is based, in part, on intragenomic conflict theory (see David Haig) and genomic imprinting (an important epigenetic phenomenon for mammalian, including human neurocognitive development). Empirical support for the parental antagonism theory of language evolution is presented in the paper, slated to be published in the academic journal Human Biology in 2011. All comments most welcome.
