Acquisition of phonology and polyphony
Very much like in case the with both stuttering and dyslexia, I proposed that there might be a positive correlation between the presence of traditions of vocal polyphony and the later acquisition of phonology by children. This idea was the third offshoot of my idea of asynchronous shift to the speech of different human populations. You can see here relevant excerpts from my 2006 and 2011 books.
