Bonobos May Have Greater Linguistic Skills Than
According to this article (link below), when linguistic tools used to analyze human language are applied to language-competent bonobos, they show much more potential for linguistic skill - as opposed to when researchers would observe bonobos in more controlled settings.
In a sense, if you give them the human linguistic tools to work with, they show more potential than previously ever thought possible. (Think language speaking bonobos?)
