Some find answers in the history books, other in research done by linguistics and few people look to the holy books for a possible solution. It makes sense to believe that a form of non-verbal language (body language) came before any known verbal language, but then again, if your search for truth in the holy books, some religions indicate that the world was created by an act of a spoken word, so who known what language was the first to be ever spoken here. Whatever you believe to be true, eventually humans found the spoken word to be the most effective form of communication.
