We describe some experiments which show how a language expressive enough to allow the communication of meanings of the same complexity as propositional logic formulas can emerge in a population of autonomous agents which have no prior linguistic knowledge. We take an approach based on general purpose cognitive capacities, such as invention, adoption and induction, and on self-organisation principles applied to a particular type of linguistic interaction known as a language game. These experiment...
