Do yowies have a language?

Unread post by Bluedog » Sun Dec 06, 2020 6:29 pm

I've listened to the Sierra Sounds countless times and have listened to any interviews with Ron Moorehead and Scott Nelson (30 years as a cyrptolinguist with the American navy) and am convinced that the Sierra Sounds are genuine.
Have any members of the site experienced what they believe to be yowies communicating with each other?
Language is what defines us as a species.
The difference between us and other primates.
If yowies or the satsquatch can communicate with language it may go a long way to answering alot of the questions i ask myself regarding just what the yowie and satsquatch are?

I can only assume they do.

I was captivated by that video and have been puzzled why it hasn't received more attention here. It was a bit annoying with him interrupting every 10 seconds but he was passionate and it came across as genuine excitement.

I've heard of chirps being heard. The recent Bellbird Grove encounter had chirps mentioned.

I would say yes absolutely although wood knocking, whistles and bird mimicking maybe an alternative to actual speech.

Speech is recorded sometimes by witnesses but its rare.

I was in the Blue Mountains years ago and thought I heard an Indigenous woman speaking, that was at the carpark at McManon's Point down Tablelands Rd right on dusk, there were no other cars in the carpark, I have heard a howl in the BM's close to dusk also.

100%, I listened to a large one "talking" to at least 2 others, who I believe were wondering around the bush breaking branches and what I assume foraging for food.
The big one was making very deep to high pitched vocalizations which were really complex, and the two would reply, it sounded like very complex gibberish.
The only way I could describe it would be If you could imagine a human with the lungs of a cow that could go from deep to high frequency with whistles, think gods must be crazy (but death metal voice )- mixed with koala, human, dog whistle, it was truly amazing.
It was apparent that the dominant one was telling the others something, maybe they were being told off for snapping branches so loudly, and they replied but it was clear they weren't making the same power? when they talked back.

Sooner or later someone will record them.

G'day Tommi,

Sounds a bit like pigs. I've heard, but not set eyes on pigs in the bush that seem to "talk" like that. Except for the whistles...

This report from Mike Williams youtube channel is pretty spot on to what I heard, the lady explaining what she heard is what I can relate to - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eFSHLaON6Yw

Yes they do.

They speak twice as fast as the human language.

They can speak when inhale or exhale; we hold our breath while talking. Inhale/exhale form part of their vocabulary.

Their voice spectrum (hearing and speaking) covers a much larger bandwidth than ours.

They can mimic other animal's noise so perfectly even the mating call to lure them into the trap.

Their language should have enough vocabulary to describe: humans, our vehicles, guns, name of their roaming locations.

They might even borrow our words, either native American or English, even Spanish or Chinese depending on their regions and on whom they stalked.

I’m pretty sure humans do not hold our breath while talking. It’s actually that exhalation of breath across our vocal chords that produce the sound.

When you look at it, every living thing on earth has a language. Otherwise how could they communicate with each other. Just because its not speech doesn't mean it isn't a language.

Crows have a language.
A series of clicks and the traditional "fark
sound of course.
There are a murder of crows that inhabit the Ikea complex at Slacks creek in Queensland.
It is intriguing, listening to them communicate and then put things into action.
And they appear to have a leader as well.
I have been observing them over a period of approximately 18 months whilst working at that site.
If a crow can produce an audible communication then I don't see why a lost man type species wouldn't have some form of language.
It goes without saying pardon the pun
IF YOU DO NOT LOOK YOU WILL NOT SEE

I camped next to a paperbark wetland one night. It was warm and still, recent rain had refreshed the area
and as I lay in my tent I was amazed at the different sounds of frogs calling. I was wondering how I was going
to doze off when I started to listen more intently. You could pick out different types of chirps and gurgles
amongst the racket- yes it was a racket.

Apparently only males call looking for a mate. Led me to think the cacophony coming from the swamp I was
camped next to was all about sex. Well reproduction to be more scientific about it.

My point being that any sound made by a living thing must be a language, or is language defined
as more conceptual, only found in the most highly developed, namely humans.
Dogs don’t bark about barking but humans sure do talk about talking.
So in this case do only humans have language ?

So what do we call everything else ? communication evolved from the most primal of all things:
reproduction or survival.
I agree with yowiedan here ‘just because it’s not speech doesn’t mean it isn’t a language’.
Surely any sound a living thing makes must have a purpose as it evolved that way.

Bluedog’s original post got me thinking about this when he said ‘language is what defines us as a species.
The difference between us and other primates’ I would like to drill down into that difference to find out
what it is rather then what that statement generally means.

Isn’t Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet just a more highly evolved version of a horny frogs ribbit.
As for the female frog she can’t speak the language, she’s just a good listener. The language speaks her.
Some suspect this happens in human language as well.

a body of words and the systems for their use common to a people who are of the same community or nation, the same geographical area, or the same cultural tradition:
This is where I was going when I asked about encounters of yowies using language.

I think they do for sure have all that. Id say Indigenous peoples would have traded and communicated with them before Europeans took over. Not stating that as a fact but have read, heard that and seems like a given to me. Imo anyway.

There was a thread on here about communicating with them on the forum somewhere. I think the last time we heard from Rod Benfield he was posting about his failed attempts to communicate.

I am aware of yowies using what I presume is mouth clicking, whoop sounds and "vocalisation sounds" whether this amounts to language I don't know

I was recently camping at Lake Cootharaba and had the opportunity to sit under 2 magpies that were sitting in a tree and I would swear that they were in conversation. One would say something, the other would think and reply. Sometimes they'd interrupt one-another, and it even seemed like that got them pissed at each other.
At one point one of them looked at me, said something and then the other one looked at me, looked back at the other one and said something back...
And I really could hear that there were multiple different vocalisaions, tones and words. No two sentences the same...

It felt like that was definitely a complex language of sorts.

It has been reported by forum members that they can communicate telepathically.
The human mind is only constrained by the barricades we build around it.
