Human communication is grounded in fundamentally cooperative, even shared,intentions. In this original and provocative account of the evolutionary origins of humancommunication, Michael Tomasello connects the fundamentally cooperative structure of humancommunication (initially discovered by Paul Grice) to the especially cooperative structure of human(as opposed to other primate) social interaction. Tomasello argues that human cooperativecommunication rests on a psychological infrastructure of shared intentionality (joint attention,common ground), evolved originally for collaboration and culture more generally. The basic motivesof the infrastructure are helping and sharing: humans communicate to request help, inform others ofthings helpfully, and share attitudes as a way of bonding within the cultural group. Thesecooperative motives each created different functional pressures for conventionalizing grammaticalconstructions. Requesting help in the immediate you-and-me and here-and-now, for example, requiredvery little grammar, but informing and sharing required increasingly complex grammatical devices.Drawing on empirical research into gestural and vocal communication by great apes and human infants(much of it conducted by his own research team), Tomasello argues further that humans' cooperativecommunication emerged first in the natural gestures of pointing and pantomiming. Conventionalcommunication, first gestural and then vocal, evolved only after humans already possessed thesenatural gestures and their shared intentionality infrastructure along with skills of culturallearning for creating and passing along jointly understood communicative conventions. Challengingthe Chomskian view that linguistic knowledge is innate, Tomasello proposes instead that the mostfundamental aspects of uniquely human communication are biological adaptations for cooperativesocial interaction in general and that the purely linguistic dimensions of human communication arecultural conventions and constructions created by and passed along within particular culturalgroups.

She has been drawing for over 20 years. Ever since the time she could first hold a pencil, she has been drawing and improving this skill in realistic drawing continuously. Growing up, art was always her passion, and while still studying in grade school, she dreamed of pursuing a career in the arts. While in school she accepted arts commissions, and eventually ended up with landing an illustrator position for a storyboards company as her first job. The company she worked for has done commercial illustration services for U.S and U.K. based companies such as Wendy’s, Ford Motors and Yoplait, to name a few. During Therese Barleta’s childhood years, her mother always gave her a pencil and a stack of papers to draw on. As doodles developed into recognizable drawings of animals and people, her family discovered that she had a knack for drawing and they encouraged her to keep practicing this skill. Comic books such as Archie, Marvel and eventually Manga nurtured her love for drawing and then later developed her skill for drawing realistically when Interactive Arts Services employed her as a storyboard artist. The job required constant drawing of different people of different ages, sexes and races in various everyday situations, and this constant practice sharpened her skill in realistic drawing. For budding artists, Therese Barleta advises: “Learn to appreciate and enjoy drawing first as a passion, something that you really love to do and not something that you need to do. Looking at other people’s beautiful works will help inspire you and fire up your interests. The inspiration will give you the desire to grab a pencil and paper and start drawing. Never lose heart, just keep on practicing, and be sure to always enjoy what you’re doing. When looking at great artists’ works, don’t just look, appreciate and absorb how the person executes their drawing. Look, appreciate and learn.” HowExpert publishes quick 'how to' guides on all topics from A to Z by everyday experts.
