Samurai Chatter: Have you used it in the field?
Editor's Note: This is a guest post by Suzie M., a sasquatch enthusiast.
Crypto-linguists believe that the species known Bigfoot/Sasquatch/Yeti/Yowie ect speak and understand a complex language, which by all accounts seems to stem from Asia. When one listens to it there is definitely a sense of it being Chinese or Japanese. It is a very odd mix of sounds, clicks and what could be actual words. This is the reason some experts are looking into the Asian dialect theory, some have said it could be a lost dialect, which was carried from Asia by the Bigfoot species that colonised America.
I am presuming they see Bigfoot as one of the many creatures, which used the now sea covered land bridges to cross from Asia to Alaska, which then continued making their way down the continent. It seems a little far fetched to me but I am open minded and will always gladly read anything on this subject, the more outrageous the claims the more entertaining and conversation worthy it is. My own opinion is that Bigfoot, much the same as any primate will have a language of its own.
Orangutangs have a very similar way of chatting at times, as well as other primates, so it isn´t wrong to assume that they will do the same. We know that chimpanzees and gorillas are far more intelligent than anyone had imagined, but that they are not capable of human language. Rather, they have a primitive version of the semantic ability children use to begin learning language. Even though we are 98.4% genetically identical to chimpanzees, the difference is not that we simply differ in the quantity of intelligence, but rather that human beings seem to have a different kind of intelligence.
Chimpanzees cannot speak because, unlike humans, their vocal cords are located higher in their throats and cannot be controlled as well as human vocal cords. Now this does not mean that chimpanzees are incapable of language or conversing with one another, it simply means they do it in a different way than we do. They understand each other using sounds, facial expressions etc they just do not use a human-like grammar, which we are used to. Their way of communicating is slightly crazy compared to ours and less controlled, basically there are no laws as with our own. So why were many of us surprised to hear the Bigfoot recordings? I mean it was obvious that they would have to converse, as all other animals do.
I think for many it just sounded strange and somewhat too silly to be true, many thought the recordings were nothing but a hoax. The chatting and noises are bizarre to say the least and remind many of us of the sound track to a bad Chinese or Japanese movie, so could this be why people are not using them in the field, or why some people don´t want to give Samurai chatter a try themselves?
Do you know of any Bigfoot researchers or hunters that have actually tried to use Samurai chatter to attract a Bigfoot?, if you have then we would like to know. So far I have only found a few posts mainly from a few kids in Australia who claimed to have done so. Maybe a lot of us are not taking this subject seriously? This could be a very good tool out in the field.
