    Default Where does Language come from? Does it come from somewhere? Let's find out!

    Since I've been a part of this forum I have encountered many rules of language both in Spanish and English were time is a factor of grammar.

    Like:
    ¿Conceto o concePto?
    "Learn him" "Learn them", Is this right?

    So a search for language origins started.Many arrows point to LATIN, then, talking with some linguistics workers of the English and Spanish tongue, the idea of branches begun.


    So, instead of finding an extensive article, researching and getting to a known very well written answer or answers I propose a different venue!

    Where does Language come from? Does it come from somewhere? Tell us in your words! Use your slang, your metaphors! YOUR MEMES!

    Or some funny-interesting pictures, like I have.

    It started when sounds were first applied to sign language. "uhh" for "here"; "uhh uhh" for "over there"

    LOL, I love your comment, Vicente. I wonder what "uhh uhh uhh" would be.

    Agree! A need to communicate and coordinate, for example. A need to be understood by the others and satisfy the selfish desires..
