A description of each system is beyond the scope of this article, and it will concentrate on examples of communication systems used by species of bees, birds, whales, elephants and nonhuman primates, including human systems, both artificial and natural, that are utilised by non-human animals. 10 Animals and language The dance of the honey bee Von Frisch (1967), an Austrian ethologist, provided much of our knowledge of the honey bee dance. Bees dance on the hive, which indicates the location of rich food sources.

Suppose that we add three waves together having the frequencies of 100 Hz, 200 Hz and 300 Hz, with the amplitude of x, y and z, respectively, as in Figure 2. What would be the resulting wave form? If we liken the situation to three people pushing a pendulum in the same direction, the first person pushing it with the force z at every beat, the second person with the force y at every second beat, and the third person with the force x at every third beat, then the position of the pendulum at any given moment would be equal to the displacement, which is the sum of the forces x, y and z.

Acoustic phonetics developed in the 1940s with the advent of the age of electronics and provided a foundation for the theory of distinctive features of Jakobson and Halle ( Jakobson et al. 1951) [see DISTINCTIVE FEATURES], which in turn formed the basis of generative phonology in the 1950s and 1960s [see GENERATIVE PHONOLOGY]. Although this framework was overhauled by Chomsky and Halle (1968: especially Chapter 7), acoustic phonetics is still an indispensable tool both in instrumental phonetic research and in validation of aspects of phonological theories.
