On page 176, Coyne claims that "biological speciation resembles the speciation of two closely related languages". On a different note, what is the role of the speech function in human evolution? Elaborate on the coevolution of linguistics and of the brain/skull. How does the progression of human evolution demonstrate morphological modifications conducive to the development of sophisticated language? what are the selective advantages and how has language shaped the evolution of society and culture? Compare to the evolution of other primates. Be sure to consult outside sources.
