Not really any language, they had words with sounds andcreated those sounds into an alphabet.

Neolithic and paleolithic are words developed from the Greek language. Both words have =lithx as their base, "Lithos" means stone and refers to the Stone Age when tools were constructed of shaped stones (before metal was used). Paleo- means ancient and neo- means new. The paleolithic period ended about 8500 years ago, the neolithic followed and lasted until about the 4th century BCE when bronze came into use.. The chief difference was that paleolithic stone tools were chipped into shape, neolithic tools were ground and polished.

The prefix "paleo" means "old" while the suffix "lithic" means stone- "Old stone age". This was when humans were not yet into civilization, and were nomadic hunters and gathers. Civilization and the advanced achievements that would come of it (like agriculture, cities, music, art, literature, government architecture, engineering, ect...) would begin in Neolithic times. (New stone age) Technology would make a drastic incline by the end of the paleolithic era. Even then there was religion, spiritualism, and beliefs of magical superstition, and deities.
