RE: New Insight Into the Evo of Human Speech
What about non homo-sapien species speech?

There is a gene that carries the capability for language, other animals have this HOWEVER humans were thought to be the only ones to have this certain specific kind of this gene.

Recent genome mapping of Neanderthal DNA shows that neanderthals also had the human version of this gene that allows us to have speech.
