“The human tongue begins to develop a unique shape, and from that the wind/breath can be articulated with sounds somewhat different than other members of the animal kingdom. Sounds, made by tongues, refine the resonating chamber of the throat; the jawbone perfects its function to sing of life; and the wind, the word, is now made flesh. Beginning as grunts and groans, yips and yuks, sound begets word. Bred by breath, sung by the wind, the word unfolds from the cavern of the human throat.”

— Emilie Conrad, "Life on Land"
