The Genesis of Human Language

Auther : Dr. Abu Said Muhammad Abdul-Majeed

The origin of human language is strongly connected with the beginning of mankind. It has been proved that Adam was the first human being and that Allah had taught him language when He created him. This is not in the literal meaning that every single word he pronounces was already taught to him; rather it has the sense that Allah gave him the ability to develop and change language.

Upon this basis, children of Adam developed the first human language through different channels. Among them were convention (as we see in our time where thousands of newly coined words for modern invented things are introduced), imitating natural sounds (onomatopoeia), instinctively or by motives and needs belonging to social, political, economic or other aspects of life.

The result was that more than three thousand languages had branched in our world from the first language due to separation, remoteness and difference in time, environment and geographical areas.
