Gibson The Biology of Language Evolution: The biology of language evolution: However, the model also showed that although the volume of chatter naturally decreased in a simulated group over time, it took longer for this lower volume of noise to be replaced by an increase in precision of transferred information. This indicated that while basic communication can evolve quickly, more complex language takes time to develop.
Usually with public goods there is a free rider problem, as individuals have an incentive to cheat for personal gain. In the case of language this is usually looked at in terms of the content of the communication. In this paper, we look not at the content of communication, but at the fact that language as a means of communication exists at all.
Calculating the origins of language
The implication is that language is likely to have evolved slowly, as there is no point in being a much better linguist than the others in your group. This by-passes the usual freeloader problem that most analyses of the evolution of cooperation face when individuals have to pay a price to benefit from cooperation.
