The main morphological effects of the evolution from australopithecines to H. ergaster had been an increase in body size and brain volume (from 300–400 cc to 1100–1200 cc). The size of the brain is also linked to the linguistic aptitude and paleoanthropologists believe H. ergaster had already developed some capacity to communicate in a rudimentary manner through spoken language. According to recent hypotheses, brain size is related to jaw structure that was smaller in H. ergaster than in earlier hominids.
