One suggestion I've heard for why language is usually left hemisphere is
that not only is left hemisphere better-suited to sequential processing,
but it is worse-suited to visuospatial processing, and it is too costly
resource-wise for one hemisphere to process both language and complex
visuospatial behavior.
