NaluralisLs now are recording various ani- mal sounds, though decoding (he meanings has barely begun. For example, we can suspect what a hyena means lo convey. But there is no evidence whatsoever that he intends to impersonate human laughter. His peculiar yowling just happens lo sound that way. We know lhat a dog under- stands a few hum a n words. though he cannot imitate them. On tlic other hand, when a budgie imitates human speech, j he has no idea what he is talk- j Ing about. Obviously, we havn not established two-way com- j munications with the animals. So far, one of the best efforts is A very limited conversation in sign language between a in an and a chimpanzee. No hyena has come forward with an offer to decode his language for us, so we can only guess what lie means. Anriy sends a World Book Atlas "lo Willie Clark, age fl, of Keenc.
