Ever since Darwin [] it has been assumed that the genetic and linguistic evolution of humans should be largely correlated [2, 3, 4].The reasons for this lie in the perceived parallelism of genes and languages: genes are obligatorily passed on from parents to their offspring, and in general the first language children learn to speak is that of their parents, so that languages tend Cited by: 4.
