The oldest language
28 Jun 08
i did some quick research and it turns up that the oldest languageS of mankind are Egyptian and Sumerian, which were spoken since 3000 BC till now! that's old, huh? but some people say that the icelandic is the oldest language, but this fact was objected even though there are no proofs! So, what language do you speak as native? I speak Albanian, and it's not that old as Egyptian or Sumerian!

Well, the oldest written one is Cuneiform from Sumeria, I believe? I do not know..nor does any scholar know the first spoken one, as it was not recorded. Probably it was in East Africa somewhere, because from what I believe the oldest know fossils of humans have been found there. -Whether a grunt that everyone understood or..whatever..seems like the location is a good bet. But no one currently living has ever heard it.
