Human Speech Evolution Gets Lip Smacking Evidence

"Imagine it jetting to a chimp in chimpanzee whether portray by REX. Harrison Eddie Murphy or Robert Downey Junior Dr. doolittle learn to talk to animals, but in reality signs has remains some distance from solving the long standing question of how we humans learn to talk during our evaluation, his one new clue, a team for searches in Great Britain have demonstrated how the rapid succession of opening and closing mouth rhythms by chimpanzees. Lip smacking mimics the natural pace, acumen mouths talking. The. Findings are in the journal Biology Letters. This phenomenon has been observed before in other ape species who performed lip smacking movements at around five hurts, which falls within a range of mouth, opens, and closes characteristic of all spoken languages namely between two and seven huts, but this lip smacking timing connection had not been made in our closest. Relatives until now mouth and vocal signals with speech like rhythm, Hetero been observed in some monkeys in gibbons and Orangutans, one of our closest great relatives, so the last years had seen accumulating evidence that these rhythm other than something that only talking humans do. This was the rhythm from deeper within our prime ancestry recycled so to speak as a cornerstone for speech pollution. The Mirror of University of Warwick. Who led the study, but the sense of evolutionary continue towards speech steelhead, a big gap to cross the African Apes. There was no evidence for speech like rhythm, neither in Gorillas Bonobos nor chimpanzees, the study followed two captive populations of chimpanzees one in the UK. I'm wanting Germany as well is to wild populations in Uganda. Researchers observed lip smacking at an average of four point one five hurts the made all the observations whenever a chimpanzee was grooming another think of a hairdresser engaging an idle chatter with a customer at the Beauty Salon, the coffee mation of speech like rhythm of the mouth into Pansies, not revealed per se how language came about in our own lineage, but he offers the final confirmation to scientists that we are looking at the right place that. That, we are on the right track to solve this mystery. In that great apes in captivity in the wild steel have to reveal all their secrets about human nature in human origins, Numero also notes the variation in Lips. Mac Times both between and within the chimp groups do not appear to be hardwired rather the lip smacking variability likely reflected how individual differences and environmental factors and even social conventions affect how chimpanzees communicate with each other. Even Dr Doolittle will be amazed.

The Most Anticipated Movies of 2020

"I'm Shawn Fantasy and this is the big picture. A conversation show about the most most anticipated movies of twenty twenty men. And we've been talking all about the movies of Twenty Nine Thousand Nine on our various Oscars awards conversation shows. We need to look forward now. The reason we need to look forward is because new movies are opening and they're not these dingy horror movies that they try to open January third and trick people into thinking might be decent. Here's there's actual big budget studio movies with movie stars this weekend. We have little movie called doolittle and a little movie called bad boys for life. We've seen both of these movies. He's rolling GonNa talk about one today. We'll talk about the other one later next week. Hopefully you will have seen that other one after that but mostly we're GONNA be talking about movies. We don't really know that much about other than the names and the titles and we're talking about why we're looking forward to them. Let's talk about the big picture aspect of movie going in twenty twenty. I'll just say as I've mentioned at the end of the year last year. The little worried about who will people go to the movies this year. Do you think that I'm justified in my concern. One hundred percent. We talk about this on every other podcast that we make now for the big picture because moviegoing has been Ben. I don't even know if I WANNA say in a state of crisis but it has been changing and the way that people consume movies has been changing pretty rapidly and dramatically for several years now but this feels like the come to Jesus Year I agree so obviously twenty. Nineteen was deeply loaded especially by Disney with mega event movies. Not just the vendors endgame not just Star Wars Skywalker but the lion king and Aladdin reboots Dumbo reboot toy story. Four came through. There were a lot of movies. Movies that Disney at least perceived as moviegoing events now in addition to that we got a lot of great fun stuff we got once upon a time in Hollywood and parasite became a box office success. And we'll the four versus Ferrari and did very well. There's always going to be surprises. I would guess that the movies that we're going to talk about here and you're gonNA choose ten and I'm GONNA choose ten. They'll be some some big ASS. Hits hits among those movies but the movie is not the schedule is not loaded like it was last year. I think there will be a distinct or of panic panic around. What's going on at the box office? Pretty much by April or May I think we have our first taste of the panic. That's coming though. Yes yes so this week you and I saw the movie do little which stars Robert Downey junior as Dr Doolittle Let me say this movie is terrible. It is terrible will in a way that I have not experienced in my adult life and I was in a deep amount of pain watching it. I don't think you had negative reaction to the movies I did though well L.. This movie is very bad. Let's just get that affront if it is not a successful movie but I do kind of put on my. This is a kids movie helmet at some point eight and I think I'm not looking to be as rewarded on a deep emotional or cinematic level as you are or once. I realized that the movie is Robert. Downey junior talking to animated animals. Sure here's my thing. This movie makes cats look like grizzly man. Like it's really true. I think that I had a better time doolittle than I did at cats. That's astonishing still worst experience that I've pat movie in like five years. There was no plot and it was creepy people singing weird songs about what kind of cats they are I like I can't I know I've said exactly that five times but I will never wrapped my head around the fact that hundreds of people sought that that was a good idea. The wanting one thing. The cats and Dr Doolittle do have in common is that they are both based on previously existing Ip. There's been not one but two different iterations of Dr doolittle over the years. Of course the very famous nineteen sixty seven version with REX Harrison. And then Eddie Murphy came back as a doctor doolittle of sorts in the I believe in the early outs. This version has had some trouble in the reason. It is so bad ad will the reasons it is so bad manifold. Let's start with some of the production problems so in April twenty nineteen Hollywood reporter had a report about the struggles of the making of this movie. They wrote the new photography lasted twenty one shooting days not including new postproduction work according to insiders and came after an overhaul courtesy of Chris. McKay the helmer the lego Batman movie. Now Chris McKay was not the original director of this Dr doolittle movie which I believe was originally called the voyage of Dr Doolittle. Yes and it was written and directed directed by Stephen Geoghegan Listener. Stephen Geoghegan wrote and directed a movie called Syria which does not in any way resemble the story telling the joke writing the the general disposition of doolittle. Those two things have nothing to do with each other. It appears that Stephen Geoghegan was just a little bit out of his his depth in making a movie like this teach on report. Sources say that it's become apparent to the studio and producer. Susan Downey Joe Roff and Jeff Kirschenbaum. Last fall that the movie budget at one hundred and seventy five million dollars needed some surgery. Geoghegan is known for his Oscar. Winning work on layer dramas traffic and Suryana is his first time tackling visual effects heavy production. That was also comedic in tone own. Self they bring in these new folks Chris McKay among them. Also I believe the writer of the teenage mutant Ninja Turtles series was brought in to Do some script doctoring. Bring didn't help I don't think we need to recap necessarily story. It is technically a voyage. doolittle does go on a voyage. Why do you think they've changed the title? Because I have no idea. Maybe they're just hoping that if all you hear is little. Then you'll think of the other. Innovations I have Dr doolittle and then go see a movie when you say you. Who Do you mean? I people with children people who go to the movies. I don't know. Would you recommend this movie. The parents parents with children. I don't know what your life is like or what your parents rearing is like. I really don't. I don't know what you're looking for in a experience with your your children. We don't have to talk about the entire movie but can we talk about a couple qualitative issues with the film. Fire Way you turn to me about twenty minutes into this movie or maybe it was like seven minutes but it felt like twenty. It felt to me like nine hundred. And you pointed out aghast that Downey junior performance was dubbed not just align here there but literally his all of his voice work the entire film the entire fell. It's very obvious as you're watching the movie s and I also have to say the dubbing is. I turned back to you and asked whether other Robert Downey junior is supposed to be Scottish. or whether there were some troubling racist elements to his voice. It really is all over the place in not got a great way. So the dubbing does not achieve anything additive to the movie. We can only speculate what had happened. My guess is Robert Downey. Junior is an adventurous actor and he likes to. He likes to make choices certainly felt like he made a choice in the original shooting of this film used a certain voice or accent and then they the production decided. This isn't going to work now. It's possible that there was even a sort of production error like it wasn't properly recorded. Yeah that'd be incredible mismanagement of this movie. That's in play. But the other actors that appear in the movie and we should say a great many quality actors appear in this movie up chief among among them Michael Sheen doing his damnedest to play a compelling villain and my beloved. Jessie Buckley shows up in this movie. With two lines of dialogue. She sleeps on a bed. Basically throughout the film Talladega how. That is Jessie Buckley until about sixty minutes. And it's very strange. Antonio banderas shows up Antonio Matarese Oscar contender Antonio Banderas. Who is fine but none of those figures seem to be dubbed? They all seem to be using their natural speaking voices. And there's no eighty are in play here so the whole thing is just absolutely confounding and it is highly distracting as you're watching the movie every time you see Dr Doolittle onscreen and he is on screen all the time because he is the titular character. You're like why. Why is the track sink? Not Correct with the film. This is a film released by a major studio. How did how did this? Hundreds of million dollars spent on it. I don't really know it's it's it's staggering and an unfortunate You wrote down here that the dramatic climax of this movie is literally a Dragon Fart. Which is true spoilers? I guess I often as people in my generation do misuse the word literally. But in this case it's literally what what happens. It is literally what happens and I just I I was in and I was in pain in the eightieth minute of this movie. I was like God Damn Emmett. I'm supposed to be alive in the world. A little community harrogate that his bad movie. But I think I said to you afterwards. It was no less sensical to me than say Melissa sent. And I think I probably turn to you more times during the listen to it was like what the hell is happening opening. And what are we serving like the children of America

We had wanted to do an episode about gun control. We could not figure out how to do it. And it was a very sensitive subject, rightfully so. And so every writer's room every every season that would come around like is there any way we can do something about gun control in schools like it was so prevalent in this season. We finally cracked it. And I'm the first episode is so instead of guns in schools, it's a bear. And a bear moves in across the street from the school lamentably school and the teachers are concerned, and they're like, hey, they go with the neighbor on there.

"Last doctor, Dr Doolittle because he really didn't do much. But anyway, it's another story for another day. And there will be a day when we will talk about that. So that's it for direct primary care physician. You know, then I just wanted to talk about. Cats. And Christmas trees. So you know, me it's been a long time since I've had a cat. And a Christmas tree at the same time. I mean, yeah. Technically last year, we had a cat, but she was different than she is. Now, she wasn't a social. So she kinda would hide all the time. So the Christmas tree didn't even matter to her. But tore you says, hey, you know, we'd better before we decorate that tree with with. Balls and such. That could break if they fall over when the cat climbs the tree, let's just leave the make tree out for day and see how the cats handle it. Well, everyone's scared that you know, all of is going to climb the tree or that Parker is going to climb the tree. But. But we should have been frayed of is them. Eating the tree. Yes. They wanted to eat the tree. And of course, Parker. You no doubt will jerk. You know, love that guy. But sometimes he's a jerk likes to bite on wires. And so what's the first thing? He goes after it's pre lit tree. He goes after the wires after the wires. So he had to bitter apple the darn tree. Because that's what stops him from chewing on things. And it seems to work olive was thinking about eating the tree second ago, and then for some reason stopped so that's all good. But that's going to be interesting tomorrow after the trees decorated to see if they try to bat, the balls that are hanging or anything like that. Because they do they all three of them. Well, not so much Parker. But the two girls they like to swat things. So it'll be interesting to see. Goes. But this year, we don't have to worry about Yogi and tree because cheese up off the ground. So Yogi can't get it. The three any longer. Does he last year could going around behind the back side of the tree where he wasn't supposed to be? And yet crawl under drag him out because he would do his typical. What does Yogi do when you call him rolls onto his back and acts all submissive? It's accused darn thing though in so cute. Sometimes that dog can't stand it. It's just so cute. It's when a kiss him. But anyway, well, that's all for today. I'm sorry. It's a little shorter. But you know, there's half the number of people here talking at you. Hopefully, she'll feel better and maybe. Maybe tomorrow night. We'll we'll record something if not we're going to do.

"Easier. You're pleading seems surreal. Oh yes, it is a very effective failsafe. You want a robot killed, right? You have to do it yourself. How Lenore Helen or please? Eleanor. I have kids. I have three beautiful children Tyler, and my little tiny baby. Philip look at Tyler Tyler asthma, but he's badly like a champ. Look at him. Eleanor look at them. Eleanor. Again, I'm not human. This is a stock photo of the crowd. I've been Nickelodeon kids choice award so like that. But Janet is a cow or a pig or chicken or something. And Ashley actually has an experience sort of like this on a smaller scale. You can't see on my window right now, but I live in an area where we get to watch cows and there's a time of year when the cows make a lot of noise and I had a friend over once who's an old farm kid, but he's an adult now and we were sitting, we were talking about academic things, and I was like, the cows are just making so much noise they must be having a good day today and he's like, oh, you know what? The cows are making so much noise it's the time of year where they take their babies away. So all of a sudden this time I thought it was the great time when all these cows make noise and I really like it. It turned out to be it's all the moms or super sad because they're babies are taken away cow time. So I imagine house could talk. It would change a lot of our farming practices. And since this technology would likely put a pretty big dent in the meeting population. Kerry thinks that the farm lobby would probably try to minimize its use and discredit it as much as possible. I would say almost certainly that they would put every legal injunction possible in the way of the technology existing. We just look at what big is doing in terms of of activist campaigns, using photography video footage, that sort of thing they're taking. What once was a very minor charged trespassing if you win on a farm and took a picture of an animal being mistreated. Worst year essentially trespassing in their turning this into felonies in many jurisdictions. Preventing people from sort of whistle blowing cruelty to animals, actually thinks that many people would simply argue that the device is fake that it's all a lie, even if they could talk the first the first way would be not to believe anything. They say, no, I don't think that this is going to turn every single person into a vegetarian, my guests if I had to guess. And that's literally what I do on this show. Every episode is that if this device existed, the meat industry would change the way they handle slaughtering animals. They would figure out a way to put the animals into asleep before they killed them so that there is no end of life, begging or pleading. But this device will really force us to reconsider how we treat animals, not just for food or in our homes, but in other settings to imagine having this little box and walking through the forest or walking through a bad zoo. I think one thing we'd have to really think about if we could understand and talk to animals is making sure that we don't penalize them if they don't talk like us. Us or think about the things that we think about. If the words from the animal that wind up coming out of this device, don't follow exactly our grammar, or if they say things that are totally inscrutable to us, but doesn't mean that they're stupid or can't communicate, and it would be easy for us to assume that because humans are incredibly egotistical animal, there's this really great and I'm going to refer to an onion article. Now, there's this really great article onion, and it's great because it's perfect and it says, study dolphins, not so intelligent on land, and it has like a sad picture of dolphin, like laying by cone and it talks about the test, the scientists laid.

"This engraving was published in a lot of places, but most notably it was published in a journal called our dumb animals which was put out by the Massachusetts society for the prevention of cruelty to animals, and that Germany might seem well rude, but they didn't mean dumb as in not smart. They met dumb as in couldn't talk, which to be very clear is a very ablest and terrible way of using that word. But that is what they meant. Animals can't talk. So therefore we as activists need to be there boy. So. The PCA using that framework with their journal called are manuals. So since animals couldn't talk these publications, imagined voices for them as a rhetorical tool. One of my favorite examples that carry gives in her work is this illustration of a horse. And by the artists Harrison weir who was well known for a lot of his animal illustrations in the nineteenth century, and it's a picture of very emaciated looking horse. You can see his ribs kind of sticking out and he looks very scruffy and that he's not really been living a particularly good life in this sort of echoed in the surroundings. So he's against a building that has sort of cracked stone. You can see bits of stone on the ground. So all of this is to emphasize the the horses physical condition. But in this particular scene that Harrison, we're has described visually for the horses tugging at looks like a vine. But when you look closer, it's a bit of a rope tugging at it with his teeth. And this image goes along with this totally delightful story from an epic poem called the bell of attract by Henry Wadsworth longfellow being an epic poem. It is pretty long, but it basically goes like this once upon a time far away play a long, long time ago, there was a society who had. This kind of unique approach to Justice and they approach was that if any member of that society had felt that he or she had been wronged, they would go to the town square and they would ring about and then all the townspeople people would come out and there'd be this sort of collective sense of Justice on how this matter would be result. So in this community, there was a night who had this favorite horse and the horse old and the night sort of turned the horse loose didn't want to care for him anymore. He was no longer of use to the night. So he sent the horse to kind of be out on its own. And of course, the horse struggled couldn't find food and eventually sort of wandered into the town square. And as he was sort of nibbling around and vines and stuff trying to find something to eat. He ended up pulling on the rope of the bell ringing the bell and calling the towns people out to the center of town. And when people saw this emaciated suffering force, they immediately got really angry. And so there is one of these town meetings in which it was decided that the night had to take care of this horse that had once been a faith fitful companion. This story was super popular among animal activists in the nineteenth century, it was reproduced as a leaflet and passed out to people. And it became this metaphor for the ways that animals are trying to tell us something. But since they don't have the words that we use, we have to pick up the baton and advocate for them. Then in the early nineteen hundreds, you saw ads against the section of animals, which is basically the practice of. Live dissection and these ads would show famously brave dogs, begging for mercy..

"Surprising. All the researchers, multiple types of tools can fashion neutrals of novel materials that they have very little. This with researchers singled out New Caledonian crows for these experiments because they had observed them making tools in the wild. So they had an idea that unlike many other birds, these crows were toolmakers. So someone have had the great idea of testing rooks. With the same apparatus that they were testing. The New Caledonian throws rooks are in the same family as crows and ravens, but they're a little bit smaller and they mostly eat earthworms and insect larvae works. Don't make tools in the while. We don't know them to make tools in the wild, and it turned out that the rooks could do a lot of the tasks that the New Caledonian crows could do. So these birds that nobody had ever seen make a tool in the wild could figure out how to make tools if they had to a rook, doesn't need to use the tool in the vile. Even those completely capable of fashioning one in captivity when there's a treat in a tube situation happening sort of remarkable, right? Because we think about tools and technologies as special special to us that we can figure out things better than other animals can. And in fact, relying on tools might not be Evelyn. Airily beneficial too many animals for the large majority of animals carrying something extra around or having to go back and. Get that thing reduces sort of survival advantage actually diminishes your ability not to get caught by a predator. So you might be thinking, what does animal technology and tool use have to do with this future where we can talk to animals will I think it actually has everything to do with it to figure out what communicating with animals might be like, we need to understand what's going on in animals heads, right? How do they process information and make decisions? How smart are they really all of that will dictate what our communication with them is like. And all of this research suggests that non human animals might actually be a lot smarter and more complicated than we give them credit for. If we could understand them, they might have a lot to say or even to teach us and taken one step further. If we could only hear what they were trying to say, the reasoning goes, maybe we wouldn't behave the way that we do. Now, even imagine an animal being able to talk can really disrupt some of the. Assumptions, behold about them. And so when we start thinking about the imaginative potential to think about new ways of relating to animals, this can be a very powerful tool as well. So the imagination imagining a different future. Imagining different conversations or relationships with other animals. There's a lot of important potential there and I'm Dr Kerry Cronin associate professor of history of art and visual culture at Brock university, which is in Canada, right? Near Niagara Falls. You thought I would get through a whole episode of this show without talking about history. Did you ha- you were wrong? I can't resist. So I called Kerry because she wrote this really interesting article that she's turning into a book about the ways in which animals talking has been used by animal welfare activists throughout history. So take, for example, this engraving called, can't you talk? It was published in an animal welfare journal in eighteen seventy eight. And in this engraving, there's a small child. Down on all fours, looking face to face with the dog and the two minimal sort of locked gave tile. Then the dog and the caption underneath says, can't you talk in the viewers sort of left to wonder whether the dog is asking the child or the child's came the dog. And it's such an interesting image because it really raises questions about the similarities between species. And of course, these things are being discussed in the nineteenth century with people like Charles Darwin, writing about some of the similarities across these boundaries..

"She argues in her new book called animal constructions and technical knowledge. We think that human beings are so closely related to the things that carry around make do the. These are the things that show that show that we're smarter than animals. And I think that's, you know, that's bull in some ways just to refer to animals. Again, let's just pause and appreciate that pun. Okay, so Ashley's book is all about the ways that animals make things and whether or not those things rise to the level of technology. And she goes through several examples of what she argues could be considered technology in animals. She starts with primates. Researchers have documented, chimpanzees using sticks to harvest ants out of their nests dipping. Sticking a probe, stick probe into a termite or ant nests. Have. Answers, things crawl up it. And then like licking all those aunts off have a protein snack. I think I call it an answer coal in my book, but not everybody believes that this tool use is really technology. So sometimes people say, you know, well, those animal cases they use tools, but they're only using one tool time so it doesn't show the sophistication of tool use that we expect -nology to have. So they're nowhere new technological in humans are just technological and chimpanzees, can't be that's a particular narrative. But these ants sickle creating chimps. They actually have an answer for that. I mean, they have no idea that they're answering a question here, but here's what they do. So if you antipathy Nuff, the answer to rights will move, they'll leave their nest. So one group of chimps figured out a way to harvest these ants without freaking them out too much. There's this one group that will cut open a nest with one type of sick tool. Flip it over and. Diff- where everything's really great and get a whole bunch of very successful, ant dipping than flip. The nest backs involves two tools onto cut open and flip, and then another one for dipping and they can flip the nest cover back on which means that it will take longer for the ants to leave. But again, you might be thinking, okay, sure. But those are chimps their basically like us. So let's talk about another species. Let's go back to birds and talk about crows fun fact about me. I am scared of birds. I really, really don't like birds terrify because you don't want them to be smartest you are. I have always told myself, it's because they look like terrible little dinosaurs, but BB Ashley's, right. There are probably broke out there that are smarter than I am. Don't tell my tenure committee that a New Caledonian crows have different tools for different purposes depending whether seeking out on what they wanna do still. Actually a tool is particularly good. They've been known to come back and. That tool that they had been using before and use it for the same cast when they're putting captivity and hazard on on captivity, about sort of what materials still us. They can be giving completely novel materials materials they haven't seen before and fashion them in ways to solve particular tasks. So most of these experiments basically present these New Caledonian crows with essentially puzzles. There's usually some kind of tube with a food object in it and bet tube is hard to get, or you have to do something to unlock it to get the food. These New Caledonian crows super good,.

"I don't think it's right for me to suggest, but we can't resist suggesting, can we if you have a dog or really any pet, you have probably found yourself. Imagining what that animal is thinking or what they would say. You've probably talked to your pet as if it was a regular conversation, and I bet some of you have responded in the voice of your pet. This is a totally normal thing to do, or maybe I'm just saying that because it is totally something that I do with my dog Moro. And in fact, I know that this is something that some of you do because I asked for you all to send in clips of yourselves having conversations with your pets and you did the clips that you send are so funny, I love them. So here is Kristen's husband Ryan talking to their cat. Olaf. Off. Do you mind if I record a little bit of our conversation. You know. Just just a little bit just there's some people who wanna hear how we talk to each other. Do we talk to each other just like this. We talked to each other back and forth. Oh, I don't know if that's the case. Yeah, it's it's the case. I tucked you talk back. We have a little conversations. No mad. It's true. It's true. Here's a Dave talking to his dog hunter hunters, like sitting on the floor, looking up at me. Can I have to have that that that thing that you're doing right there buddy. This is too high. It's gonna burn your mouth newes. Okay. I'll eat it real quick like this. Donald iphone, even tasted. I promise I will not burn my mouth. Hunter come onto, you know, just you can't have this, but, but I will eat it so much.

What did you pig interview? Pause it now who nine year olds, but Alexandra wonders if we really actually want to have these conversations for real with our pets. I really listen to what owners say when they talk to their dogs, and I've been taking notes on that for years and we have all these different types of things that we say two dogs was was were with them and walking them, and those are fascinating. But I, I don't think that we want the dog to talk back there. I think that it's the dogs quietness that appeals to us that we're kind of their. There little bit the conversations a little bit of figment of our imagination in if they talked back. I can't even imagine how that would be satisfying. And when we come back, we're going to get into this question, what would it actually be like if we could really speak to and understand animals, how would it change our relationships with them? Would we respect them more or less all that and more after this quick break. Okay. So let's set aside the practicality. Don't forget whether animals have language and if so, how we might build a decoder ring to understand it. Let's talk about what animals might say to us in this magical Dr Doolittle world. What would they talk about? Well, maybe technology so technologies become away that you can perhaps investigate what other species? No, without having to. Traded gorilla. You sign language. If it's controversial to say that animals have language, it is even more controversial to say that they have technology, but that is exactly what Ashley..

"So it's a very long time for people to truly understand why these birds can do what they're doing. Alex died unexpectedly in two thousand seven at age, thirty one. If you want to read more about him, you can read Irene's book, Alex and me, which is all about their relationship and research. And today I read is still working with birds studying what might be going on in their heads. When I started avian Coug mission in particular was an oxymoron. People just could not believe that bird could do these kinds of things that challenging to young children and eight. But today, if you look for people doing the kind of work that Irene was doing with Alex. You will probably have a hard time finding it. There's nobody really concentrating on the language communication aspect right now. In fact, even renewed isn't doing this work anymore. She's shifted her research to teaching the birds enough language skills that she can study their cognitive, but she's not doing animal human communication anymore. Today, the people who do study animal communication and animal linkage mostly aren't trying to teach non human animals to communicate with us using our forms of language like sign language, and that might be a good thing. A lot of people have questioned whether teaching animals, human communication forms is really the best way to figure out if non human animals can and do have language by this metric dolphins and apes. Probably think that we don't have language since they've never managed to teach us to talk to them using their ways of communication, right? I think we're our future lies into. Of understanding animal languages is decoding the language abilities of wild animals where you don't have this problem of training them. So let's look at some of those examples. Most of Khan's work happens in a species that like birds. Many people don't think of as being super smart initially started looking dogs because I was interested in social behavior and they had a social system that wasn't very well known at that time. And I thought that I could do some work describing how the social system functioned, but as con was studying these prairie dogs and their social interactions, he started noticing something about their calls. Everybody knew that they had alarm calls, but everybody assumed that they had only one alarm call for every situation. We see snake and we go eek we see a lion and we go eek and the is always the same. The continent. This was true. And when he listened closer, he was certain that different alarm calls were actually different, and he was right cons. Work has found that prairie dogs have a ton of different calls. They can encode all kinds of information in there. Warning calls in his early experiments figured out that prairie dogs can tell each other, what kind of predator they should be looking for the call for humans and other one for communities and other one for red tailed hawks and other one for domestic dogs. But even still con- noticed that within those groups of warning signs for humans and dogs, and hawks and coyotes, not all of the calls sounded exactly the same. Maybe they're describing the physical properties of each individual predator..

"I had him for about two weeks and we've found that the thinking liked the best was to chew on paper. So I said, okay, that's first label. I'm going to try teaching him. And after two weeks, he said. And it was like, oh my gosh, he's got the acoustic envelope here until I had really good feeling that it's going to work. It turns out that paper is a really hard word for a parrot to say because they don't have lips. Okay, mouths the word paper right now. And you'll notice that you use your lips to make that sound parrots cannot do that. But the fact that he could mimic some kind of sound that was really close to paper suggested Irene that she was on to something with Alex. Irene came up with a method of teaching him language that she called the model rival method. So the way that this works is that you have Alex bird, you have a trainer and then you have a rival for the trainer's attention usually played by student and use objects with the bird wants. There's an Herod interest of the object itself, so we can use object as a reward. So that might be a key. See, for example, Alex really liked keys bird sitting on a perch it seeing this object. It really wants. I show that to a student. I say, what's here? She says he joy and I gave it to her and she goes key and she's scratching herself with bird would use the key to scratch itself and it's going KiKi and going. That's right. That's right. Then the rival and the trainer switch roles. So she shows to me and says, what's and I don't, and she turned to wenches. No, that's wrong. The idea here is to show Alex that it's not just any random set of sounds that get him the key, the reward. He has to actually say, key to get the key. Then we let the bird try using this method of model. Rival, Irene was able to train, Alex, say over a hundred words. But the impressive thing about Alex wasn't that he memorized a lot of words in connection with images. Instead it was that he could generalize if you showed him different keys made of metal or plastic big and small. All he recognized that they were all still key shaped and he could pick out which objects in a set were different from one another and how they were different. So he understood which attributes for Samer different, and then an object could be same with respect to some things and different with other things. And that's a much higher level of understanding than just the typical identity versus non identity. So earlier you heard a clip of Alex saying which key was bigger, which was green, that kind of thing. Here is another example. This is a clip from Nova documentary about Alex. And in this clip you can hear Alex differentiating between a few different things. Irene is showing Alex two keys. One is metal and smaller and the other one is yellow and plastic and a little bit bigger. He tell me what's different. All right. Kato me what's say. Good boy. What color bigger. You know, we'll call her bigger. Good. Alex would even recombine words we're trying to teach Alex, the word apple, and he comes up with Bonaire banana cherry. And you know, you look at him and you go, okay, it kinda looks like a big. Jerry pay a little bit like a banana, right. And the Bush seems obviously easier for you to say that another sound so we'll go with it. In another case, someone brought a cake into the lab. Alex knew the word for bread and he knew the word yummy. And when he tasted the cake, he said, yummy bread. But like with CoCo, Irene Ireneusz faced a ton of skepticism about just how much her work really says about language and birds ability to communicate. When I would give my talks in the late seventies early eighties, the argument was there's no cerebral cortex. Can they do it? And I'd say, well, go find, you know, these are my data. The bird can do. Today, researchers who study birds know that while they might have tiny nut sized brains, they actually do have structures within those brains that can act like our cerebral cortex, and that might be involved in something that looks like language..

"Now, I am not an expert here, so who am I really to say whether animals do or don't have language, but I will say that personally, having at this point, fallen way down into the rabbit hole and read a lot of papers from the last forty years about animal linkage, it does feel a bit like scientists are continually tweaking. The definition of what language is in order to make sure that non human animals don't have it either way. It's probably not that surprising to you that chimpanzee or gorilla could learn sign language, right? I mean, they are so. So close to humans and pretty sure that humans have language, right? But there's another famous example of training an animal to speak to humans, using human language that involves species that we don't really think of as being all that smart. When I put in my first grand proposal, literally came back asking me what I was smoking, but this was something that I felt was really possible and made sense. This is a renewed pepper Berg.

"Cautious with claims around animal language, especially when it comes to animals that we are training to answer questions or to communicate with us in human like ways. How can we be sure that these animals actually understand the words or concepts that they're saying instead of just mimicking or even responding to subtle cues from us. The classic example of this comes from the fourteen hundreds in Germany and. Horse named clever Hans clever. Hans was a horse who could apparently do arithmetic. You give it a number like two plus four and huntsville's would have stomped his hoof six times to give you the answer, and people were amazed by that until one Walla just discovered that what Hans was responding to was not the actual question that he was given, but how people leaned backwards slightly when the right answer was being produced. So Hans didn't really have a concept of what the right answer was hunts, had a concept of what the people were actually doing. This has come to be known in the animal communication field as the clever Hans phenomenon skeptics of some of this work of teaching animals language have said, well, part of it might be clever Hans. Dominant in the sense that the experimenters are influencing the outcome. Even some of the most famous experiments in animal language have since been discounted as clever Hans tricks in the nineteen seventies a psychologist at Columbia named Herbert terrace took in a chimpanzee and he named it Nim Chinse key. I swear to God and Nim lived with terrace and his wife Stephanie LaFarge and their daughter, Jenny in their Upper West side house, terrorists Tottenham, all kinds of sign language all told one hundred twenty five different signs. But when terrorists reviewed some of the videos of nimh signing with the teacher, he started to have second thoughts here is terraced talking to NPR about the experiment which trucking, most of the teachers imitating most of the teachers. Almost never made a sign spontaneously. Terrorists came to believe that Neum would never use language the way humans do to form sentences and express ideas that was the end of the project, but not all studies of language ended like this before him. There was wash, oh, a female chimpanzee born in nineteen sixty five who researchers again, taught sign language wash, oh, Alta learned over three hundred fifty signs and unlike Nim whose handlers were convinced that he was just mimicking them washes, handler's thought that she was able to remember and recombine signs long after learning them. There's even a story about wash, oh, that she learned the sign for quiet and she would sign it to herself in situations when she was doing something that she knew she might get in trouble for or some of you might be familiar with KoKo the gorilla. Here's a clip from a documentary called a conversation with cocoa and you'll hear cocoa's. Handler, penny, Patterson, asking cocoa questions and cocoa responds using sign language. Who is that. Okay. That is you guerrilla animal Kobo. Okay, that's good. That is you are a lovely annual. Like wash, oh, Coco's sign language seemed to rise above simple mimicry. She could ask for things and start conversations over her life. Cocoa learned over thousand signs and became an international celebrity as a kid. I had this book called Cocos kitten, which was all about how cocoa adopted kitten and cared for it, CoCo died in June of this year. And it was a really sad day for a lot of people. Her death also was the impetus for a lot of pieces written by scientists, arguing that cocoa didn't learn language. I will quote just one of them by Dr Patricia, go a psychologist at Maynooth university. She wrote quote, in spite of reporting to the contrary. Cocoa did not master sign language. She then goes on to say that CoCo was like all of the other primates that have been taught sign language. She writes, quote, many of the primates did not use language spontaneously, even in examples where they did. They used. It simply to acquire some things such as food or a hug. This is in contrast with human children who, although they use language to request things also talk or sign simply to interact to be social and to alert someone of something interesting. Go end the piece saying, quote it is now generally accepted that apes and other non human primates cannot acquire language and the major stumbling block is structural complexity..
