What enables us to communicate with one another through the use of speech? Is the difference between Homo sapiens and other apes simply a matter of degree or are we unique and discontinuous from other species? Corballis argues that the answers to these questions lie in the fact that humans are the only primates that are predominantly right-handed, a sign of the specialization of the lift hemisphere of the brain for language. Illustrated.
