    My group of friends had a little joke running where we always call each other dave, and, after spending the week at camp together, we got to the point where when one of us said dave, we would all know who they where talking too, it was really cool. and it proves that it is possible.

    Love you matpat, great theory, but you compared the number of words in the English language to the number of phrases in groots language, if each time he said, I am groot, was one word, the movie would be much much longer because of it

    you're saying that 'i am groot' can be spoken in 100,000 ways... ok.... equivalent to the oxford dictionary.., but groot says 'i am groot'.. equivalent to a sentence...

    For the tone and stress it’s similar to Greek where you have to put emphasis on a certain letter for it to be a proper word (especially if the word can has different meaning)

    i'm a time traveler from the year 177175 and in my native language we only have 5 letters, 4 consonants[d,b,g,sh] and 1 vowel, although there are 8 directional variations for the vowel [ on, cat, wet, eat, earth, oops, aught, but ], and 4 optional accent marks [semi vowel, popped, nasal , breathy ]to make the 20 consonant sounds, making 28 total, not including vowel digraphs and trigraphs, and rarely used 4 hardened vowels [h, y, f, w] and artsy curved vowels

    I an groot:
    Translation: so, I hate to be that guy, (no I don't) but there's actually one big problem with this theory. When you say Groot has as many words as the human language, you're counting every variation as a word. But when Groot says, "I am Groot" it means phrases, not words. He doesn't say it five times to complete a sentence, only once. So, for Groot to be on the level of english, there would need to be as many variations in those 3 words as there are in putting together our 171476. Not to be a total theory killer though, you didn't count timbre as a separate factor because it is really hard to quantify. But looking at all the different timbres Groot uses, I think that nuance could very well affect the meaning of his words.
