Why humans struggled to make 'f' and 'v' sounds until farming came along

A new study suggests that the f and v sounds were made easier to pronounce by the change in our diets the invention of farming made possible. The idea isn't a new one, but is only now being taken seriously.Even today, many hunter-gather cultures lack labiodentals in their languages. The Neolithic Revolution fundamentally changed how humanity went about the business of surviving. With the rise of farming, humans no longer had to travel into inclement climates following the migration of animals, ...

We Can Thank Agriculture and Soft Food for the 'F' Word, Claims Provocative New Study
