    sentence meaning.

    "Language is thought by many anthropologists to have been created by women, and there are many myths to this effect in different cultures"?

    Pl. Make or break this sentence in simple way. I can't understand its meaning.

    Many anthropologists think (or believe) that females first used language and there are many old unproven stories (myths) in different cultures (Indian, Japanese, German, American Indian, etc) that mention this.

    Re: sentence meaning.

    Please make your thread titles more relevant. The title should include some or all of the words you are querying. A good title for this would have been "Language is thought by many anthropologists"
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
