do animals speak?

Because animals are living things,they have blood like humans,and reproduce and give birth to their young ones,they also go out like humans do,to gather their own foods. Now you are asking: Do animals speak?

Noo,dear,animals do not speak! They mimic,and imitate humans speech sounds to show that they are intelligent creatures. What animals do is that they express their feelings,through gestures,movement and smell.

 According to one BBC report on this matter,it says and I quote:"The truth seems to be that some animals can mimic the sounds of human speech, but only a tiny minority can talk meaningfully as humans do. These less capable animals are just as fascinating as the truly skilled, because they could reveal how our own language skills evolved."

This is where we disagree with the report. Animals can never speak no matter how much they can reveal our human language skill. There is no kind of intelligent animals on earth that possess the kind of human brain that is responsible for language production and language comprehensiveness. One of the most intelligent birds- Nightingale, can only sing many beautiful songs that can even send humans to sleep and make them happy,yet,they cannot speak. What about parrot,a gossip bird that gives intelligent reports? They still cannot speak! Because they are intelligently trained to mimic the sounds of human speech,whenever they have anything to tell their owners,they do so through para-linguistics behavior and sounds. 

 As a matter of summary,what makes us super animals is the way we produce speech sounds and speak. We understand and interact to one another,sing beautiful and intelligent songs,than animals can do. If animals can speak the way humans do,then there is no difference between humans and animals! We would have become equal,even int the eyes of God!!!
