Can Dolphins say ‘Huh?’

Do dolphins say ‘Huh?’ Do gorillas point out dropped bananas to other gorillas? Do ants quote one another?

Human language is a a uniquely complex combination of social and cognitive capacities.

Professor Nick Enfield explains the latest research on what distinguishes human language, from its cooperative tendencies to the fact that ours is the only communication system that can be used for making statements about itself, as exemplified by the universal human use of ‘huh?’.
