Considera girl who keeps slipping off, arms limp as old carrots, into the hypnotist's trance, into a spirit worldspeaking with the gift of tongues.She is stuck in the time machine, suddenly two years old sucking her thumb, as inward as a snail, learning to talk again.She's on a voyage.She is swimming further and further back, up like a salmon, struggling into her mother's pocketbook.Little doll child, come here to Papa.Sit on my knee.I have kisses for the back of your neck.A penny for your thoughts, Princess.I will hunt them like an emerald.

Chirps, whistles, clicks: Do any animals have a true ‘language’? A colony of Brazilian free-tailed bats in College Station, Tex. Males establish territories within the aggregations and use song to defend territories and attract females. (Kirsten Bohn) From ultrasonic bat chirps to eerie whale songs, the animal kingdom is a noisy place. While some sounds might have meaning — typically something like “I'm a male, aren't I great?” — no other creatures have a true language except for us.

A new study on animal calls has found that the patterns of barks, whistles, and clicks from seven different species appear to be more complex than previously thought. In fact, five species including the killer whale and free-tailed bat had communication behaviors that were definitively more language-like than random. While the most complicated mathematical models come closer to our own speech patterns, the simple models — called Markov processes — are more random and have been historically thought to fit animal calls.
