What about an "everybody is correct" explanation ? For, phoneme diversity peaks in southern Africa; and phonemes are "the most basic sound units -- consonants, vowels and tones -- that form the basis of semantic differentiation in all languages". Meanwhile, the diversities, of other language features, e.g. "subordinate clauses or the use of the passive mood", peak in other places, e.g. "Caucasus".

Naively, basal features, of modern human language, originated in southern Africa; and yet, other features, originated in other places. I.e. modern human language began in southern Africa, "pre-Exodus"; but other language features began later, elsewhere. If so, then modern human language was plausibly sophisticated, in comparison to other hominid populations, e.g. Eurasian neanderthals & Asian homo erectus.

Naively, species-specific linguistic ability; in/near our species 'cradle'; plausibly corresponds to "genetic Eve", who likely lived c.200Kya, and seems associated with apparent expansion of human populations to southern Africa.
