They found that the ape called Koko was showing signs of having the ability to speak verbally and had developed speech patterns.+ADw-/div+AD4 +ADw-div class+AD0AIg-article+AF8AXw-text text +ACIAPg +ADw-p+AD4-Could just convey through impulsive sounds, like seeing a predator or after being surprised, may have been dispelled, following research by a team from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.+ADw-/p+AD4 +ADw-/div+AD4 +ADw-p+AD4APA-center+AD4APA-/center+AD4 +ADw-/p+AD4 +ADw-p+AD4APA-center+AD4APA-iframe src+AD0AIg- width+AD0AIg-640+ACI height+AD0AIg-360+ACIAPgA8-/iframe+AD4APA-/center+AD4APA-center+AD4-They carried out a study on a 44-year old gorilla called Koko, who+ACYAIw-8217+ADs-d managed to learn sign language to be able to speak with her goalkeepers. The ape has been virtually brought up being around people, having spent over four decades being encircled by them.+ADw-/center+AD4APA-/p+AD4 +ADw-p+AD4-After seeing over 70 hours of footage that was recorded of the gorilla, the discovery was made by Marcus Perlman.+ADw-/p+AD4 +ADw-p+AD4APA-em+AD4-I went there with the thought of examining Kokos gestures, but as I got into watching videos of her, I saw her performing all these incredible vocal behaviours,+ADw-/em+AD4 he said in an article posted on the University of Wisconsin-Madisons site.+ADw-/p+AD4 +ADw-/p+AD4 +ADw-p+AD4APA-center+AD4APA-iframe src+AD0AIg- width+AD0AIg-640+ACI height+AD0AIg-360+ACIAPgA8-/iframe+AD4APA-/center+AD4APA-center+AD4-The team was able to discover nine distinct voluntary behaviours that needed management over using respiring and the gorillas vocalization.
