    Groot became a fan favorite right away despite, or perhaps because, he can only say the simple phrase "I am Groot". Now, so far in the MCU we've seen only two people able to fully understand the little twig - Rocket and Thor. What I want to know is, can you or I learn to speak Groot? Could it be a REAL language? Let's find out!

    Soo I’ve had this on my mind for a week now we know that “Groot” speaks his own language so groot might not be his real name

    Also he doesnt HAVE to say I am Groot, if he can say that, it means he can make the sounds like i, a, u, etc., meaning he can speak more.

    I myself have a bit of problem with my voice, and that is when I wake up, my voice is pretty much whispering, but after 10-15 minutes it comes back, it's been ~2 years now and nothing changed, every morning I wake up and my voice is just whisper in the hallway calling for my mom to ask where my towel is

    If you want a very very simplified Chinese tone explanation, just think of it as this _, this /, this \/, and this \. In Chinese, we usually write it like this _ / \/ \.
    Think of the lines being your tone, _ is flat, / means it goes higher, \/ means it dips down but comes up again, and \ means it goes down. And when you say a character, each tone makes it mean something else completely.
