the Cambrian explosion. In a sense, the emergence of language was the Cambrian explosion of the mind.
This discussion on language has been so interesting. The thing that has puzzled me for a long time is: does a mutation, or whatever kind of change it is, i.e. throughout evolution, did it happen in one animal and then, from that animal's descendents, take an age to spread , or did it happen in large or an overwhelming number of members of a species all at once.

I think I'm going to start a topic in the Science board ..
