    Abstract:
    Spanish abstract: El lenguaje no puede entenderse al margen de la evolución. No basta sólo con explicar el surgimiento evolutivo de una "capacidad de lenguaje", sino que también hay que explicar la evolución del lenguaje en sí, el lenguaje en acto y no en potencia. En suma, no sólo se trata de averiguar si nuestros ancestros hablaban, pues hoy como ayer se puede hablar sin decir gran cosa, y hablar hablan hasta los loros—sin lenguaje. Hay que averiguar también qué eran capaces de decir y de concebir. __________________________________________________________________________________ English abstract: Language cannot be understood apart from evolution. It does not suffice to give an evolutionary explanation for a "language capacity"; it is the evolution of language itself that has to be explained, language in act and not in potentiality. In a nutshell, the question is not just to find out whether our ancestors spoke, since both then and now one can speak without saying much, and even parrots can speak—without language. What has to be investigated is what they were capable of saying and of conceiving. Note: Downloadable document is in Spanish.
