All you're doing, Gerry, is cloaking your rebuttals in a series
of sesquipedalian strands that make the subject seem far more
library-dependant than it really is. The matter is simple and
self-evident and doesn't require special postmodern terms like
"embryo development" or "brain science".

A slow evolution of language is the ONLY explanation. In contrast,
a sudden, spontaneous origin to human language is as likely as
spontaneous combustion. It takes _two_ people to speak but the
genesis of language requires some previous communication to
begin with, bringing us to an immediate paradox. So anything other
than an evolution of language is entirely counterlogical (but sells
many books to be later quoted by eager book beavers like yourself).

Perhaps you should peel the onions... I'll just make some instant
soup instead. The former cooking activity is fun, even romantic;
the latter practical.
