Cafe Sci ~ How Did Humans First Start Speaking To Each Other?

Mon 10th June 2019 7:30PM
1 Spice, Devizes, Wiltshire, SN10 1AG
Dr Hannah Little takes us on a humorous tour of how science fiction might help us to answer the question of how language – our most powerful tool – can be established from scratch when there is no pre-existing communication system.

We all know how difficult it is to communicate with someone who does not speak the same language as us. Imagine then, how difficult it would be to communicate with someone with no language at all. At some point in our evolutionary history, this is exactly the problem our ancestors faced.

Hannah is an expert on evolutionary linguistics, investigating how language might have emerged in both humans and non-human animals.
