Where does language come from? Did God create it, or is it a result of natural selection and fitful adaptation, as Epicurus held? Does language languish, once conceived, or does it grow and decay like living “matter”? And what did Leibnitz have in mind when calling Chinese an invention of a wise man? Was he alluding to the fact that Chinese is a tonal language and as such perhaps easier to recognize?? Whatever the answers, language lets us live the lives we love and like to talk about.
