Animal language will be all the same?
As we all know the human being speak several languages.
Where does the error? Is who created mankind.

animal communication doen't have our complexity, as far we know.

but they do communicate emotions, things in the environment, feelings, thoughts, like we do. and they can learn new calls for things. human communication/language is simply a more advanced state than what dogs, cats, horses, lions, apes, or other species have.

Animals rely a lot on body language, smells, and instant 'alert' - without any cultural overlays. If human language was reduced to just those key factors (and no cultural overlay) there would be very little to misunderstand between nations.

for example will the Chinese cat says to four letters that European cat says.
miau.Tambem not be that man learned the letters of the alphabet with animals.

Cat ... miau
Dog .... a o

Dum ..... i o

Duck .... q u a

for example this animal I wrote here, say those letters, and apparently it seems that the human being has learned all the letters of abecedário.Qual is your opinion?

The onomatopeyic sounds of the animal change from country to country and between languages. In Spanish from Spain:

Cat: miau
Dog: guau guau
Rooster: kikiriki
Little birds: pío pío

The average cat can speak 7 languages. They simply choose not to do so in front of humans.

It has been shown that British cows 'Moo' with Regional accents. Devon cows sound slightly different to Scottish cows. Honest - this in not a load of bull.

I have no doubt that dogs, etc, will have regional variations also.

Allowing for the greater human vocal range, and greater human geographical distribution, and a few million years separate development, Human language differences become evident.

animals use vocalisations in a similar way to us, just for us it's more complex.

For instance, a dog would bark to warn or get attention, or make others pay attention to something. Monkeys often have different calls for snakes, food, rival troops, etc. Horses neigh, bicker to communicate different things too.

There have also been cases of gorillas learning sign language. Google Koko the gorilla if you're interested.
