 4. When do you think humans begin to talk to each other? How did

language get invented? Biologically modern humans go back 100,000 years

plus or minus. Language almost certainly goes back only 40 or 50

thousand years. What do you think humans were doing before they learned

to speak? (And incidentally, if an infant does not have people around

who respond to its babbling for its first year or two, it will never

learn to speak. Language does NOT come "naturally.")


CB:  Carrol, what is the basis for your saying language (symbols) does not
arise from the beginning of the species ?
