Do you remember when you uttered the first word? Do you remember how to learn to speak? Can you even imagine yourself not knowing how to talk? And if they could not speak and the people around you? How sad it would be to live in such silent world, is not it? It surrounds us from birth and is an integral part of our existence. We are accustomed to our ability to speak, as something natural, and almost did not pay her attention. But this is phenomenon that deserves close study. However, scientists are engaged in, and sometimes offer some very interesting things. For example, you ever heard the voice of Neanderthal man? That's really who really quiet – that is 30,000 years old! A Today long-extinct Neanderthals are speaking once again – with the help of scientists, of course, but rather, they created a computer program. This program allows you to synthesize the voice of ancient man, based on physical data structure of the brain and vocal apparatus. Neanderthal speech was heard by scientists as a result of this experiment has been studied and analyzed by linguists, who argue that, although Neanderthals and modern man in general, similar structure larynx and equally large skull, a combination of sounds that could publish our ancestors were still poorer than our current speech.
They could not pronounce sounds clearly and their speech is often reminiscent of the singing that the semantic load lay more on the tone and volume, rather than on individual words. That, however, not surprising, as it developed – our main achievement, which required years of evolution. However, the makings for this apparent even among those most Neanderthal – in the form of a large skull, apparently fit into his brain development, and, most importantly, that they have the gene FOXP2, is responsible for language skills. This gene was not for people that preceded Neanderthals, nor our closest 'relatives – the chimpanzee. So, now scientists know how to communicate the ancient people. Perhaps in the future everyone will be able to listen to Neanderthal "conversation" in the anthropological museum.
While it remains proud of what nature has given us such a wonderful ability – the ability to speak. And remember that we have a really great and well-developed brain and the entire set of essential genes, but because even such a complicated task as learning a foreign language should be to us on the shoulder! Only need apply diligence and deal better on their own. If your spoken English is not exactly confused with the speech of Neanderthal man. And now – an interesting resource about the development of foreign languages: – Easy to study the mechanism of words and sentences 10 foreign languages. Language Resource – English. Sincerely, S.
