Check out Animal Linguistics on Learnist

One thing I’ve always found frustrating about humans is… Well, there are many things. For example, humans seem to forget that we are — gasp — animals who lucked out with the thumbs.
Another annoyance is that, when studying different species of animals, we base it on the accepted standard of human intelligence. I’m not an environmentalist by any means, but how can we claim to be so very smart if this plant has been here, what, millions of years? Humans a few thousand years, yet we’ve almost completely destroyed this planet! (Most of the damage having been done over the past two hundred years.)
That said (grumbled, complained, etc), the above link leads to some interesting articles on nonhuman animals and their speech.
Enjoy.
