Why The Same Language Is Not Spoken By All Of Us?

At the beginning of history, there was a time, when the entire mankind probably spoke the same language. As the time passed, this parent language or probably there were several parent languages, spread and changed.

The parent languages were spoken by a small number of persons or by spread out groups. Gradually, the number of persons in groups increased and there was not enough food for all of them. Some people formed a band and moved to new locations.

These people arrived and settled at new locations. They spoke the language of the original group from whom they had passed. By and by new pronunciations crept in. The people would begin to speak a little differently and there would be changes in the sounds of words.

Some words used in the old homes were no longer in use at the new place. New experiences needed new words for description. The making of sentences changed. The people who were originally living in a place with their own language mingled with the new settlers and a composite blend of language emerged.

When the speech of new people changed slightly from the original language, it would be called a ‘dialect’. After a longer time, with many changes in words, sounds, and grammar it would be classified as a new language.

This is how, Spanish, French, Portuguese developed from Latin; and English, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish and Dutch grew from an early German language.

The ancestor language, together with all the languages which developed from it, is called “a family” of languages.
