Human Language: Nature or Nurture??


Why are humans the only species capable of language? I've researched a lot into this and it wasn't too hard to see this is a much debated topic. Some say it's down to anatomy and the position of the larynx in the throat, some say it's because our brains or even our genes hold something which enable us to speak. Others say, "Animals CAN talk...we just can't understand them" or that, "We only speak because our parents teach us to". So what do you think?
