So as I said, I've been reading up on this subject and there are so many competing theories it makes your head spin. On the subject of when language began, I don't feel I have the expertise to come down on the side of one opinion or another. If you are talking 2 million years ago, that's a long time but I read an article on Morgan's work out of Berkeley and he makes his case. Certainly we were manipulating the environment and making tools but language as we know it today?

Did they have the tongue morphology and larynx needed to form the kinds of words we use back then? Had their brains developed the kind of motor connections to create sentences and understand what was said back to them?

In my opinion language evolves like everything else. I can barely understand kids today. Probably in 100 years I wouldn't be able to understand the adults either. I am certain they were communicating and had abstract thought. They probably had distinct sounds for things like tigers or women or children but I actual language?

Who knows?

I do think that not long after we came out of Africa we were using language because the Austronesians that inhabited Australia and parts of New Guinea had to have used boats and and I don't think you could have cooperated to build and sail a boat without language. So it is reasonable to think 1 or 2 hundred thousand years anyway. They were anatomically humans after all.

Okay, I see what you are saying but did the process have to start with digital words or could it have been just sounds that meant a certain thing - some kind of danger like a lion or something pleasurable like a sunrise. I struggle with the "digital" idea a bit just because it is taking a concept that is in our current lexicon in the computer age and applying it to something we know little about. I know this is a thing in linguistics so I defer to your thinking but it stull bugs me for some reason. I think because I've heard kids say things like eeewwww when they see a spider or something. It's not digital but it means something.

It's okay you don't have to explain. I get what you mean. It's just......too 21st century for me, I guess.

Okay, well thanks for explaining your theory to me. It certainly is an interesting subject and I learned a lot. I still think that the genetic and physiological events had to arise simultaneously to language rather than language preceding them but at this point I am not sure where we actually disagree on this point as you have said that the path to sophisticated language would have been very gradual. Certainly in 200K years or 500K or 2 million there would have been lots of time for the genetic evolution of mouthparts and brain to evolve along with language which is what I believe without being an expert on the subject.

And I do agree with you that sophisticated language would have given humans a huge advantage over other species and was one of the factors that led directly to the civilization that we have today. But I temper that with the knowledge that actual writing did not happen as far as we know until a few thousand years ago. There was art, so people were thinking abstractly but there is no evidence of actual writing until say the Indus Valley that we know of so possibly a couple of thousand years before that. It is something that makes me wonder. If people were talking for as long as some linguists think, I wonder why written language took so long to appear? They had clay and sticks and cave walls to write on.

I never got a chance to reread your article so I'm going to go do that. Thanks again. Interesting talking to you.

(as an aside, the period when hominids first arose was probably 2 million years ago or so. The Cambrian was at least 25 or 30 million years probably longer.

So the entirety of our existence on Earth as upright, biped yammering apes has occurred in less that 1% of the time the Cambrian lasted)

:) Just had to throw that in, lol.
