Description

You Talking to Me? ooks at the thousands of languages humans speak, plus how we communicate with symbols and codes, and even how animals communicate.

This is your chance to travel the world and explore all the cool ways humans and animals communicate with each other. From the over 7000 languages humans speak around the world, to bugs that communicate with smells, and text messages that use emojis, everyone communicates in a unique way.

You’ll get to see how languages develop and how they change from one language to another and over generations. Follow root words such as proto (the Greek word for first) around the globe from one language to another. Discover insider languages such as slang, gestures, and symbols.

Domestic and wild animals do some pretty cool communicating, too. Learn about elephants and bats that talk with frequencies we cannot hear, insects and reptiles that communicate with chemicals we cannot smell, and birds and frogs that use color to advertise.

The author

Catherine Ham has lived and traveled in many countries. She speaks three languages fluently and "gets by" with several more. As a language specialist, she taught high school English and Afrikaans. She is the author of several best-selling knitting books and four nature nonfiction books for children.
