Normally when you quote extensively from another source, it's expected that you will indicate that it's a quote and give the source. You got this:
quote:An article in Science Illustrated of July 1948 (p. 63) states: â€œOlder forms of the languages known today were far more difficult than their modern descendants . . . man appears not to have begun with a simple speech, and gradually made it more complex, but rather to have gotten hold of a tremendously knotty speech somewhere in the unrecorded past, and gradually simplified it to the modern forms.â€
Linguist Dr. Mason also points out that â€œthe idea that â€˜savagesâ€™ speak in a series of grunts, and are unable to express many â€˜civilizedâ€™ concepts, is very wrong,â€ and that â€œmany of the languages of non-literate peoples are far more complex than modern European ones.â€ (Science News Letter, September 3, 1955, p. 148)
from this site. I haven't looked further, but I strongly suspect that much of what you included in the message I'm replying to is by someone else.
Or perhaps you are the orginal writer at the ALPHEBETS [sic] site. If so, it would be in your best interests to make clear that you are quoting your own work to avoid the appearance of plagiarism.
