[xmca] Reference for ontological and phylogenetic language comparison

Dan I. Slobin has an article, "From Ontogenesis to phylogenesis: what can
child language tell us about language evolution?" that appears in IN the
j. Langer, S.T. Parker edited volume, "BIology and Knowledge.

The questions he poses in the article are: Does linguistic ontogeny
recapitulate phylogeny?, Does linguistic diachrony recapitulate ontogony?
OD children create grammatical forms?

good read but not a CHAT perspective but rather biologicaly based.
