What was the first human language?

The first language was almost certainly spoken more than 100,000 years ago, because so long ago the roads of the Bushmen (San) and the rest of humanity were saved, and given that San languages have the same complexity of other languages, it is plausible that our Common ancestors spoke a language with roughly the same complexity.

But perhaps languages with modern complexity are not very much older than 100,000 years.The last more common ancestor of Sapiens and the Neandertalers lived 400,000 years ago, and it is I.H.A. assumed that the Neandertalers had a less complex language than sapiens. They had welliswhere some of the genes needed for language use, but their childhood was quite short and therefore they probably did not have the time to learn a language with modern complexiage.

Proto-languages can be reconstructed until about 10,000 years ago.Languages that are older than that, we cannot say anything except that they probably had the same general structures that we find nowadays in all languages. Thus, they probably also had distinction between work and name, they had 3rd person Pronomins, and they made no distinction between 芒 鈧?you and jij芒 鈧?versus 芒 鈧?艙you and someone anders芒 鈧?(in both cases we just say 芒 鈧?艙jullie芒 鈧?.

As we go back in time, to Homo Heidelbergensis, we can assume on the basis of genetics and anatomy that they also had language but less complex than ours, and we cannot actually say anything about their language.Probably their language was suitable for utpressors like 芒 鈧?艙mama, I have fam芒 鈧?and 芒 鈧?艙divorce anyway! 芒 鈧?but less suitable for math education.

Vroger was assumed to have evolved language to foster cooperation in a Hunter culture: 芒 鈧?艙now Daddy will explain you how to make a stone spearhead… 芒 鈧?and 芒 鈧?艙walk up the hill to force the nose horns down, then our friends fall into the Descend.This theory has gone a bit out of fashion. First, speaking language is not very suitable for teaching technical skills-we need drawings and gestures before. To each other the Scheuwen during the hunt is also not exactly splentisch. In addition, girls learn to talk faster than boys, which seems illogical as language especially for men professions was needed. So it is more obvious that language initially evolved for education and social cohesion, ie gossip.

This obviously does not know anyone, but.. First When:

  • The vocal apparatus (the larynx, the mouth, the tongue,…) has only been able to develop after an upright walk, some 2.5 million years ago.
  • The skull content, and more specifically the development of the “language centers” in the brain.

Some researchers, on this basis, estimate a “language capability” from around 1.5 million years ago, although it has evolved further.

  • True language, “thinking and Speaking”, similar to what we understand in the 21st century, is thus situated around 200,000 years ago, when the Homo sapiens arose.
  • Many linguists believe that all human languages are derived from a single language spoken about 50,000 years ago in East Africa.They have found clues scattered around the vocabulary and grammars of the world about how that original “proto-human language” would have sounded. New research suggests that it looked somewhat like Yoda’s speech, the little green Jedi from ‘ Star Wars ‘.

    We cannot possibly know that.Scripture only came to thousands, if not tens of thousands of years after the first languages. So We cannot determine in any way what the oldest language is.

    However, We can determine when speech originated.But the question is whether we can call that language, or when it became real language, laat\xa0, we can determine what the first real language was.

    We cannot know that.There has been no one of our time to report that.

    Quite tricky to say, but the Sumerian (ergo the cuneiform) is the first (written) language.

    Spoken language is impossible to say because Homo Sapiens, both as the Neanderthals communicate with each other through sounds that do not resemble a language, but were indeed a language: 芒 鈧?艙oeh Ah Argh? 芒 鈧?芒 鈧?艙hahaha, Ughe bworg oeh argh! 芒 鈧?/p>I start with a small disclaimer.Languages go beyond prehistoric times. We cannot find any evidence that a language was spoken at the time, but the contrary does not have to be true either.

    The oldest language we know is Soemerisch, which was spoken from 4000 to 2000 BC.

    It was spoken in southern Mesopotamia (area between the Euphrates and Tigris in the Middle East) and was not related to any other language.The language is proto-literary, so with hieroglyphs it was nailed to things like stone and clay.

    The first human language was spoken with small spikers in the face.Small spiisms that were on wonder or awe, envy, joy and so on.


    As a Christian, I would say that the first human language is the language spoken by Adam and Eve and their descendants to the language confusion of Babel.

    There is no clarity as to how the first language sounded.It is not even sure if a scripture had already been developed. This makes it almost impossible to say something about it.

    This last point also money in a secular worldview.We can at most say what the earliest discovered scripture is. Perhaps you can then compare different languages to the conclusion that they are descended from a common primortal language, but over that primorylanguage, then there is not much more to say than pure speculation.
