"...This gives us an important clue to why Neanderthals failed in the competition with African migrant Homo Sapiens. Neanderthals had language themselves. However, the base of the Neanderthal tongue was positioned higher in the throat, crowding the mouth somewhat. As a result, Neanderthal speech would most likely have been slow-paced and nasalized.

The overall conclusion would be that, although Neanderthals did have the ability to speak, they were capable of articulating only a smaller number of phonemes. Jared Diamond described this limitation using the following example: imagine how many words you could say if the only sounds you were able to make were a, u, c, p. Imagine trying to say "Trinity College is a fine place to work." All you could say were something like "Capupa Cappap up a cap capupap."

Whites' ancestors[Neanderthals] had large brains but were dumber

"The research team explored the idea that the ancestor of Neanderthals left Africa and had to adapt to the longer, darker nights and murkier days of Europe. The result was that Neanderthals evolved larger eyes and a much larger visual processing area at the backs of their brains.

[Which explains the lower forehead of whites according to N. Tcheboquessarov]

The humans that stayed in Africa, on the other hand, continued to enjoy bright and beautiful days and so had no need for such an adaption. Instead, these people, our ancestors, evolved their frontal lobes, associated with higher-level thinking, before they spread across the globe."

Eiluned Pearce of Oxford University decided to check this theory. She compared the skulls of 32 Homo sapiens and 13 Neanderthals.

"Since Neanderthals evolved at higher latitudes, more of the Neanderthal brain would have been dedicated to vision and body control, leaving less brain to deal with other functions like social networking," she told BBC News.

[That's why peoples like the British are so reserved, antisocial, cold and individualist]

"We infer that Neanderthals had a smaller cognitive part of the brain and this would have limited them, including their ability to form larger groups. If you live in a larger group, you need a larger brain in order to process all those extra relationships," he explained.

Oxford University's Prof Robin Dunbar, said that "They were very, very smart, but not quite in the same league as Homo sapiens," he told BBC News.

Neanderthals Lacked Social Skills

For ages, anthropologists have puzzled over Neanderthal and human brains, since they were the same size. If each species had comparable brainpower, why did humans dominate?

A comparison of Neanderthal and human brains has revealed it was a matter of allocation: Neanderthal brains focused more on vision and movement, leaving less room for cognition related to social networking.

According to the study, published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, bigger eyed and larger bodied Neanderthals required more brain space devoted to the visual system and basic body functions, leaving less area for what co-author Robin Dunbar called "the smart part."

He explained to Discovery News that this is "the part that is doing the creative thinking."

Dunbar, a professor of evolutionary psychology at the University of Oxford, and colleagues Eiluned Pearce and Chris Stringer compared the skulls of 32 anatomically modern humans and 13 Neanderthals. The skulls date to 27,000 to 75,000 years ago. The researchers noticed that Neanderthals had significantly larger eye sockets.

The researchers next used the known relationship between the height of the eye socket and the size of visual brain areas in living primates to estimate how much of each brain was dedicated to visual processing. Once differences in body and visual system size were taken into account, the researchers could then compare how much of the brain was left over for other types of cognition.

It's clear that environmental differences affected the evolution of each species. The common ancestor of Neanderthals and Homo sapiens was Homo heidelbergensis. It had a bulkier body, as for Neanderthals, but did not possess enlarged eyes.

Describing the speech of neandertalensis must involved a lot of speculation.

Your characterization of neandertalensis as whitey's ancestor is not accurate. First, the % of neandertalensis ancestry in “whites” is small, smaller than the % of heidelbergensis ancestry in W-Central Africans.

So tell me, smartass, what was the speech of heidelbergensis like?

If Neanderthal man was so good, he[or it] should at least still exist. If Neanderthal had a smaller area for creative thinking, this can explain why Neanderthals didn't invented arrows and bows in the same period of us humans.

A species doesn't survive for being “good”. Are mammoths not “good”? They're extinct.

Homo sapiens hadn't invented bow and arrows either, when they first encountered neandertalensis.

Neandertalensis was already in decline when sapiens showed up in Europe, so sapiens was not the only factor in their extinction.

Of course Ish tov, with his Neanderthal Dna, would be in here defending the Neanderthal. I didn't read a word he wrote and know why it is in this thread.

I guess if u say this lie long enough even you'll start to believe it
And you know darn well some whites have as high as 25% Neanderthal DNA

And for the average to be 4% thousands of yrs later it had to be really prominent

Heidelbergensis was extincted way before the out-of-africa migration.

Wrong. It is now known that W-Central Africans interbred with a non-sapiens species AFTER the time of OOA. This had to be heidelbergensis... who else could it be?

So, boy, do you inherit the speech skills of your heidelbergensis grandpappy?

Moron.

Wrong you jihadi scum.

Europeans are overwhelmingly the descendants of africa migrants, of OOA.

Europeans have less neandertalensis admixture than YOU have heidelbergensis admixture.

Boy.

Could you prove that Heidelbergensis lacked linguistic skills as Neanderthals? Obviously not.

LOL!!! What an ass!

Heidelbergensis was the ancestor of both sapiens and neandertalensis. Whether the later heidelbergensis in W-Central Africa whose blood flows in your veins had advanced language, we don't know.

But also we cannot make definitive statements about the complexity of neandertalensis language, as you are attempting to do.

You stinking jihadi scum.
