Dolphins Speak In Sentences Up To Five
The extent of communication between dolphins has been unknown until now. Researchers at the Karadag Nature Reserve, in Feodosia, Russia have recorded two Black Sea bottlenose dolphins by the names Yasha and Yana. The recordings reveal the two having conversations consisting of sentences up to five words in length. According to the team, this shows dolphins have a language not entirely dissimilar from our own.
A new underwater microphone that could distinguish between different sounds the animals made was used. They found there was an eerily human-like flow to the conversation between Yasha and Yana. The animals would take turns producing pulses and clicks with up to five distinct sounds. The sounds have been compared to words. The other dolphin would wait for the “sentence” to be complete before replying.
