@matpat Idk if you came across this in your research but some languages (like Arabic) are root languages where even a small change in vowel can change the word. Arabic in particular has multiple vowels (I wanna say 6) that to me (a native English speaker) all kinda sound like the letter 'A' it's totally possible in my mind for Groot to be using subtlety different vowels that to us sound the exact same but aren't at all. Just a thought

But you calculated for the phrase I am groot as meaning a whole word. But it has been proven that saying I am groot just once can translate to a whole sentence or more

But Matpat, the way Groot talks, he’s saying full sentences. You calculated for words. He would say “I am Groot” and it would mean “Buy yourself some Game Theorists merch before it’s sold out.” And with your version of “I am Groot” you would have to say “I am Groot I am Groot I am Groot I am Groot I am Groot I am Groot I am Groot I am Groot I am Groot I am Groot I am Groot”

When MatPat is discussing the way in which somebody might speak a language, he seems to be implying that none of the ways in which you could deferentially communicate a phrase are based off of objective terms and phrases while that philosophy of linguistic language is false. Something communicated in a language is given its meaning not because of what was communicated but only within the way it's interpreted. Therefore, no matter what anyone says, or what anything happens to be, it is a language as long as it is interpreted as one.

Translation: Groot didnt always have this weird language, earlier in his comic history from his origins as a villain to his break out appearances in Annihilation and the new modern team of the Guardians first major appearance, groot was very capable of full english sentences, and to be honest, he was well written! my personal favorite Groot line was a scene where they guardians were crawling through the sewers, Groot being rather miffed about the situation, as he himself is technically a monarch, says "Crawling through the sewers is futile, FUTILITY IS BENEATH GROOT"

I'd say Tibetan. Have you *seen* the way how they write stuff? Plus they have tones just like Cantonese. I'd recommend you watch Nativlang's video on it.

Andrew Gould
Andrew Gould - 2 days ago
Even without the Hardened Larynx or however you say that MatPat the time, it would take to learn this language would be Extremely long due to the number of Variables and even small mistakes can change the meaning completely not to mention the fact that after 15 Humans will have A ton of trouble learning a pretty basic language unless they devote a ton of time into it and that is for a basic language.
