Didn’t you say you went to college?
Language never was invented, it evolved.
The over-riding debate, is "how?"
And THAT, is not a settled question.
How Could Language Have Evolved? | Noam Chomsky
...what about the birth rate/survival/maternal death/etc?? this aspect affects the migrations--yes?
birth rates/survivals/ lower-maternal death higher in the past
...if evolution [creation--whichever you want to believe] was just limited to ''one'' area, how did the earth get populated/so ''fast''.....
how did these ''explorers survive? or did they?
realistically thinking, there would have to have been many groups all over [ created or from evolution ] because death rates/etc
...IMO, the pre-humans/humans would have had to evolve and be intelligent enough to survive before significant migration happened
this might be for another thread--sorry if off topic
...it is interesting to note that babies cannot make ''human'' sounds because of the location of the larynx--just like in monkey's/etc
..the larynx descends after about 4 - 6 months
..so just by a tiny ''difference'' in DNA, monkeys can't ''make human'' sounds

Actually, just the reverse is thought to be true.
Humans were first hunter/gathers and then civilization was formed. IOW, they would range over many hundreds and even thousands of miles, just like the native Americans of the N. American when the explorers arrived, and some Mongol tribes in the middle ages. When resources and food is sparse, and technology is low with little domesticated species, with low population density, there is little pressure to stay sedentary. Constant migration for changing resources is a way of life.

Some of the same proto-humans are known the world over.

sure, but by ''many'' groups-not just a few?
did the pre-humans or humans migrate?
did they migrate only from Africa or were they in other areas?
There is no 'Chinese language'
No one invented it.
No person ever invents a language- languages evolve from other languages.
What was the first language ever used by mankind? Who knows- but probably evolved from other vocalizations and evolved multiple times.
