I did not have a reason for choosing this price, but simply chose what I thought would be fair. Even some phonological changes are sporadic. However, she found it much cheaper to use Elance to hire a translator. For example, in Equatorial Guinea, Spanish, Portuguese and French function as co-official languages within the state.

Once my book was published on Kindle, I posted a new project on ACX to have the Spanish version published as an audiobook as well.

    As thus defined and envisagedculture covers a very wide area of human life and behaviour, and language is manifestly a part, probably the most important part, of it. People with a lesion to this area develop expressive aphasiameaning that they know what they want to say, they just cannot get it out. Harcourt Brace, The Wave Model of Language Change "[T]he distribution of regional language features may be viewed as the result of language change through geographical space over time. If language is transmitted as part of culture, it is no less true that culture as a whole is transmitted very largely through language, insofar as it is explicitly taught.

Language can have developed only in a social setting, however this may have been structured, and human society in any form even remotely resembling what is known today or is recorded in history could be maintained only among people utilizing and understanding a language in common use.

This shows that the impairment is specific to the ability to use language, not to the physiology used for speech production. Humans have speculated about the origins of language throughout history. Some scholars assume the development of primitive language-like systems proto-language as early as Homo habilis 2.
