Humans may not be the only ones to use language. Scientists think dolphins also use words and sentences to speak to each other. New research shows this communication is similar to our conversations. The sounds that dolphins make look like sentences that let dolphins send messages to each other, identify themselves, have relations, and do things together. We may be able to understand dolphin language and talk to dolphins in the future.

Researchers discovered that dolphins had their own language after they recorded two bottlenose dolphins. The dolphins listened to each other and then replied. A researcher said: "This…resembles a conversation between two people….This language exhibits all the…features present in the human spoken language. This indicates a high level of intelligence…in dolphins." He said the dolphins' language is highly developed like the human spoken language.
