A1. Read the passage carefully and answer the questions that follow.
Many animals are able to communicate with each other very well – but none of them can talk as we do. That is, no animals can use words. Birds cry out and make sounds that other birds understand. Smells, movements and sounds are used for communication by animals through which they express joy, anger or fear. Human speech is a very complicated process, which no animal can perform. One reason is that in a very special way we use a whole series of organs to produce the sounds we want to make when we utter words. That way our vocal cords are made to vibrate. The way the throat, mouth and nasal cavities are adjusted, the way the lips, teeth, lower jaw, tongue and palate are moved – just to make vowel and consonant sounds, is something animals can‟t do. They cannot produce a whole series of words to make a sentence. And there is another, perhaps more important reason why animals can‟t talk. Words are only labels for objects, actions, feelings, expressions and ideas. For example, the word „bird‟ is a label for a living, flying object. Other words describe its colour, shape, flying and singing. Still other words would be used to tell what the speaker thinks or feels about the bird or its actions. For human beings, therefore, the use of words means the use of labels or symbols to communicate something. This requires a degree of intelligence and logical thinking that no animals have. So, they can‟t talk the way people do.
