The origin of language is a complex and largely speculative area of linguistics. It is clear that we do not have any historical evidence of what the language was like 100,000 years ago, but many scientists agree that it was around this time that the language began to develop at all (wikipedia.org). It can be assumed that it evolved from the cries of primates as a result of systematization, the growth of the human ability to abstract, and biological changes in the structure of the speech apparatus. Experiments with monkeys show that higher primates are capable of learning, abstraction, expressing emotions, simple counting, and even humor, so that the language of our ancestors 100,000 years ago, although probably primitive, was still incomparably more complex than the communication systems of other animals (with the possible exception of dolphins and other cetaceans, whose “language” is still not clear).
