With smaller jaws, the larynx was able to open up, which gave the vocal cords more room to vibrate and produce more sounds
It killed off bacteria, which meant that their throats were less irritated and allowed for speech.
Plate tectonics were too great at the time. The rumbling and the shaking were very stressful.
There was too much competition for food. They went were food was more readily available.
It was too hot there. They needed cooler climates.
All the caves were taken. They moved to have shelter

No one knows for sure.
They entered their homes from the roof. We use doors.
They are concerned with invaders. We do not worry about that anymore.
Their boys learned their father's trade. Our children go to school and learn a variety of subjects.
They bartered for objects. We use money.
They left their dead out in the open. We bury our dead.
They moved around town by walking on the roofs of the houses. We use sidewalks and streets.
