Human language evolved, as did all distinctive human behaviors. Describing why, when, and how this came about began as a serious issue in linguistics, although speculations were found all across early anthropology. Now the approaches to language origins are much more scientific and systematic, and are informed by paleoanthropology, archaeology, and primate studies as well. The topic is more than one seminar’;as worth, but we will look at some of the emerging (and surprising) aspects. Some background in anthropology is suggested, but not required.
