Zusammenfassung

Im Sinne der Tradition von Charles Darwin behaupten wir hier, dass der Ursprung der Sprache auf der Entwicklung von Kognition und Protomusik beruht. Durch sexuelle Selektion und andere Faktoren wie Belohnung ist Vokalisierung der Ausgangspunkt für die Entwicklung von Sprechen und Sprache. Gesten und körperliche Signale oder Reaktionen haben vermutlich die Entwicklung komplexer Vokalisation unterstützt. In einem Zeitraum von etwa 4 Mio. Jahren, vermuten wir, dass es verschiedene Protostadien bei der Entwicklung von Kognition und Sprechen gegeben haben muss. H. erectus könnte der erste Hominid gewesen sein, der Protosprechen verwendete, um abstrakte und symbolische Konzepte in Form von diskreten linguistischen Einheiten auszudrücken. Wir vermuten weiterhin, dass komplexe Silbenstrukturen nachgeahmt wurden, um eine sprachliche Syntax zu entwickeln.
