Dolphins are known to be very good at deciphering the human language, especially if they would make a lot of effort. Some are even saying that dolphins will even have the ability to create a highly developed spoken language. Some even say that they can even create their own language that will be almost the same as the language of humans.

There are different things that humans can do if they really want to teach dolphins how to speak the human language. They may want to speak to dolphins many times until such time when the dolphins may start to react. This is possible, and people have been trying it. So far, this has only been done to train dolphins and not actually to treat dolphins as equals.

According to some scientists, dolphins can possibly develop a type of language that is very similar to that of the usual human language. They could probably make some sounds and talk almost like human beings if humans will pay them a lot of attention and speak to them all over and over again.

There are also instances when they may try to talk to human beings by producing sounds, but most humans will not understand what they are trying to say. Right now, dolphins usually try to communicate with humans with some non-verbal actions. Some say that the typical dolphin language is still so complex that it will take time before humans will actually learn to understand what dolphins are trying to say.
