There are a few. So, I've provided a few links which may help further. Of course, you may need to narrow this down further (links below):Dear all does anyone know if any work has been done on how speech - language- down through generations has influenced throat development /facial characteristics in different peoples?
Hi Marjorie,Thank you so much Petra, and all who have answered me.
Over the years [ in my case many!] I have noticed we all develop speech as babies from those around us and yes genetics is the main 'blueprint ' as it were but, could the way groups speak have some subtle influence as well
@petra4 My phenotype looks reasonably normal but - genetically I am different.
Again thank you all.
subtle influences over time, yes. The most you spend time with "outside influences", you'll notice a difference. Most would refer to this as "growing up". Yes, that too! As for speech/speaking, this doesn't only come down to genetics.

I need further clarification . . . in what way(s) different?
Appreciate you sharing here on LiveScience and it's community.Hi Petra,
Well over many generations language may develop differently and have pronunciations that other languages do not have e.g. the French say @Tre bien some of us find difficulty pronouncing the Tre.
How am I different? Well my bone marrow produces Erythrocytes that are more fragile than the 'normal'
A condition called Thalassaemia and, it's genetic and passed on to the next generation!
I will be away for a few days and therefore will be unable to access the live science threads
Thank you Petra,Appreciate you sharing here on LiveScience and it's community.
There are variable factors which make it difficult to make further comment.
