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.

I AM GROOT 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"

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.

MatPat, just a theory suggestion: I think it would be interesting to touch up on Knights of Sidonia and PHOTOSYNTHETIC HUMANS. Like, would it be possible for a human to survive through the products of photosynthesis, if yes how much of the stuff do humans need to produce, and what would it take for us to achieve it, like, say, how long do we need to be exposed to the sun, etc. and i dunno, maybe also the health implications of being a photosynthetic human?

silbo is based on a prior knowledge of spanish, so it can't be understood otherwise its just mimicking the rise and fall of words that you would get if you were speaking spanish normally, but the whistling allows for people to communicate at farther distances, like btw mountains

Groots "language" is finite, which natural languages aren't. In natural lanugages you can always "invent" new words, groot can't do that if his entire vocabulary extends to "i", "am", "we", "are" and "groot". Also, in natural languages, you can always invent new sentences by combining meaning-bearing elements (morphemes or words) in a way they have never been combined before: "establish" vs. "establishment" vs "establishmentary" vs. "establishmentarian" vs "establishmentarianism"... or "I see a cat" vs "I see a cat that scared a dog" vs "I see a cat that scared a dog that hunted a man" vs "i see a cat that scared a dog that hunted a man that ate an apple"... Groot's "language" simply lacks syntax, which, according to the vast majority of linguists, would disqualify it as a "natural language". The keyword to look at is called "recursion". An interesting read in this regard is the ongoing "battle" between Nevins et al and Dan Everett.

I would say Groot's language is actually only consisting one word, technically. I mean, you can might as well consider 'I am Groot' one word since you can't change the order of the words or even leave any out. Groot never says "Groot Am I" or "Am Groot." So it's honestly one huge word for him at this point.
