The implication is that complex language must have originated in our ancestral lines after the separation from chimpanzees, about seven million years ago, giving us a few hundred thousand generations to build our language instinct. Thus, we need not keep looking for homologues to language in other species to account for the existence of language in evolutionary terms.
Herder declares that it is this singularity in man that provides the clue to his special gift of language. The argument is not unscientific, but it is constrained by the comparative vagueness of the Wirkungskreis, the sphere of activity. Herder does not explain the difference in mechanism between an animal with highly precise and specialized behavior and a mammal with a much broader range of behavior. Herder no longer regarded language as an invention, since we cannot suppose “men should ever have had a good conception of the uses of language before any language existed” (Wells 1986, p.
