BMC Biology, 15 (1). 64.  ...  Pagel from the European Research Council has supported most of my recent research on language evolution. Competing interests The author declares that he has no competing interests.  ...  He also asserted that "The survival and preservation of certain favoured words in the struggle for existence is natural selection." (pages 59-60 in [20] ). Darwin was right on both counts.  ...
