Are there any animals that can understand English?



  1. 0 Votes

    Most linguists and scientists would say, “no”; however, an interesting case to the contrary does exist.  Alex, an African Grey parrot who was trained by Irene Pepperberg, was presented as an animal that could understand English.

    Most still dismissed Pepperberg’s claims as “mimicry”, but there are some very interesting facts about the case.
