Summary Human speech is based on rule-governed assemblage of morphemes into more complex vocal expressions. Free-ranging putty-nosed monkeys ( Cercopithecus nictitans ) provide an interesting analogy, because males combine two loud alarm calls, ‘hacks' and ‘pyows', into different call series depending on external events [1]. Series consisting of ‘pyows' are a common response to leopards, while ‘hacks' or ‘hacks' followed by ‘pyows' are regularly given to crowned eagles [2,3]. Sometimes, males… Expand
