An Elephant That Speaks Korean
An Asian elephant named Koshik can imitate human speech, speaking words in Korean that can be readily understood by those who know the language. The elephant accomplishes this in a most unusual way: he vocalizes with his trunk in his mouth

The elephant's vocabulary consists of exactly five words, researchers report on November 1 in Current Biology, a Cell Press publication. Those include "annyong" ("hello"), "anja" ("sit down"), "aniya" ("no"), "nuo" ("lie down"), and "choah" ("good"). Ultimately, Koshik's language skills may provide important insights into the biology and evolution of complex vocal learning, an ability that is critical for human speech and music, the researchers say.

Well that means he's more fluent with the language than most U.S. soldiers there, except of course for curse words.

Re: An Elephant That Speaks Korean
Elephants have much bigger brains than humans, and more advanced too, with deeper windings, and a greater emphasis on the parts used for higher brain functions.

I think the physical difficulty of making human sounds is what's holding Koshik back here.

No video footage, so I'm a big skeptic. The only 'evidence' I seen traced back through sources was an audio recording but the man who speaks, the background noise changes when the elephant speaks. It leaves a little room for doubt.

You obviously don't know what you are talking about. Thank you for highlighting your dislike of military members based on nothing but your own flawed belief system.

Washington, October 31, 2006-Wartime recruits who joined the United States military in 2004 and 2005 tended to be better educated and wealthier than their civilian peers, according to a new report from The Heritage Foundation.

I used to have a cat that shouted "A roll" when in heat at odd hours of the night, very loudly to the point we were squirting it with a water bottle.
