What Did Neanderthal Speech Sound Like?

Based upon the physical size and shape of the Neanderthal voice box, nasal cavity, rib cage and thick heavy skull, we can infer that Neanderthal speech was probably loud, and considerably more high pitched and nasal sounding than one might expect, compared to modern human alive today.

Neanderthal middle ears differed from AMHs, might be related to vocalization.
