Why we move our hands when we talk

A child picks up its native language without any comprehension of how it works.

 Dennett believes, plausibly, that language must have originated in an equally unplanned way, perhaps initially by the spontaneous attachment of sounds to prelinguistic thoughts.

(And not only sounds but gestures: as Dennett observes, we find it very difficult to talk without moving our hands, an indication that the earliest language may have been partly nonvocal.)

 Eventually such memes coalesced to form languages as we know them, intricate structures with vast expressive capacity, shared by substantial populations.
