How Language Began

Mon, February 19, 2018 | CLA 1.302E (Glickman Center)

In this talk I will present archaeological, cultural, and linguistic evidence that language began with Homo erectus perhaps more than one million years ago and that Neandertals and sapiens emerged into an already linguistic world.
