Abstract

Humans share 99 per cent of their genetic information with the chimpanzees What then makes us so incredibly different from chimps? Our language is often credited with being the prime mover in making humans what they are. Noam Chomsky of the Massachusettes Institute of Technology has argued that language is innate and develops spontaneously in children. We are quite unique in our ability to modulate our vocalisations because of the unusual structure of our vocal tract.
