Talking

In 528 B.C., having just invented the first language (English), the English went on to invent talking.

Not stopping there the English went on immediately to invent the first ever question (“How are you, old chap?”), the first ever reply (“Mustn’t grumble.”) and the first ever platitude (“That’s good to hear.”). Although invented by Englishmen it was Englishwomen who went on to excel in talking and really took it to the next level.

Two English women practising talking in 1982. By this time many other countries had tried talking themselves (with varying degrees of success).
