Animal Language

Submitted by • June 8, 2019

Linguists claim that any language should show some aspects of arbitrariness, duality, cultural transmission, discreteness, displacement productivity and meta linguistics. Research has shown that some animals like apes are able to use language that fulfills some language requirements especially cultural transmission, productivity and discreteness (Galup 2010). In this case, the user of the ‘ape language’ is able to pass some information to others. Similarly, some numbers of units are used to form an indefinite number of utterances and the language creates meanings.
