Nonetheless, sonic very shrewd deductions can be made about the probable speech of early homo sapiens, and certain precursors (see, for example, Lieberman, 1999: Swadesh, 1971)
One's time is well spent reading sources such as Gans ( 1981), Lieberman ( 1988), Stam ( 1976), Wells ( 1987).

Predating by some twelve-and-a-half centuries Ben Jonson's challenge, "Language most shows a man. Speak, that I may see thee." Explorata. "Oratio Imago Animi."

I am indebted to Dr. Emily Teeter, Assistant Curator of the Oriental Institute, University of Chicago, for the authority of this criticism. Personal communication.
The study of nature, philosophy, psychology, ethics, politics, grammar, rhetoric, aesthetics, epistomology, logic, metaphysics.

Another current-day observation, less Frequently made, is the tendency to stutter less when slightly inebriated. See second Aristotle observation above.
See later (Chapters 4 and 5 especially) in regard to the efforts, and achievements, made by persons concerned with and knowledgeable about good speaking.
