--According to researchers,​ the development of language by the human species was made possible by the evolution of our brains. The functional expansion of the human cerebellum is a consequence of specific cerebellar structural changes that evolved during hominid evolution and that could have been a prerequisite for the evolution of human language (Leiner, Leiner & Dow, 1993). In short, as we physically evolved as a species, our minds we also cognitively evolving to give us the tools to communicate. Given what we now know of the evolution of life on the planet, is it really so far-fetched of an idea that other species have also evolved similar methods of communication amongst themselves?+According to researchers,​ the development of language by the human species was made possible by the evolution of our brains.

--Animals communicate in ways that are most efficient to their evolution. This makes human communication not nearly as special as people tend to make it out to be.+Animals communicate in ways that are most efficient to their evolution.
