Great lose!
Languages in the Andamans are thought to originate from Africa. Some may be up to 70,000 years old. It is believed that all Andamanese languages might be the last representatives of those languages which go back to pre-Neolithic times. The extinction of the Bo language means that a unique part of human society is now just a memory.
