The Digital Linguistics: An Interdisciplinary Hypothesis for Neural Mechanism of Grammatical Demodulation -- Syllabic Addition and Modification of Grammars are Translated into Meanings at Brainstem Auditory Nuclei --

Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) To date, the origin and the mechanism of human language has never been clarified, because it is an interdisciplinary and invisible phenomena (quantum mechanics). In order to perceive and analyze complex system, the author applied the reference models and defined concepts with rigorous, transparent and reversible definitions, and clarified the linguistic phenomena in physical and logical layers of vocal communications. He came to the hypotheses that, about 70,000 years before present along the coastline of South Africa, the digital language was born, first with the acquisition of Click phonemes, then, with the acquisition of vowels and moraic syllables following development of hyoid / mandible and subsequent laryngeal descent.
Language is a grammatical development of vertebrate sign reflexes. Signs function alone based on the dichotomy of pattern recognition (differentiation of A or not-A) and the dualism such as an integration of sign and movement vector (A+B=C) or a reaction chain (If A, then B). French and Japanese languages have explicit minimum semantic complex unit of “langage articule'” or “bunsetsu”, which is a “grammar + concept” or “concept + grammar” structures. It is plausible that linguistic processing is a dualistic integration of a conceptual pattern recognition and a grammatical modulation.
The author surmises that grammatical processing is operated by auditory nuclei at brainstem, which is the reason why human speeches are processed monaurally.
