Why haven’t we figured out how to talk to dolphins yet?

Although researchers have taught captive dolphins how to read sign language, deciphering dolphin-speak is tricky because their language is so dependent on what they’re doing (whether they’re playing, fighting, or going after tasty fish). It’s no different for humans. Think about when you raise a hand to say hello. That same gesture could also mean goodbye. Crossing guards raise their hand to say stop. A salesclerk might do it to another planet trying to make sense of it all. Now you know what it’s like to study dolphin communication.
