Especially in relation to tool manufacturing, language's evolutionary beginnings can be attributed to the consequence of technological innovation.

[...] Therefore, although Neandertals were incapable of co- evolving linguistic systems, their own attempts and errors with language development would have still influenced the overall language evolution course. Since language was a product of both anatomical design and social transmission, its co-evolutionary dynamic facilitated a more intense and inclusive evolutionary context for language evolution. Language evolution had a unique role in human intelligence evolution. The anatomical capacity for language was stimulated by the overarching course of evolution, particularly process of tool use evolution. [...]
