"I haven't done a Guardians of the Galaxy episode." It's RIGHT THERE! Like LITERALLY AS YOU'RE SAYING THAT! *checks the video itself* Oh well, I guess YOU haven't done a GoG episode. https://youtu.be/NpX_-Xxwv5E WiseCrack did on your channel. Also, whatever happened to Film Legends?

Groots "language" is finite, which natural languages aren't. In natural lanugages you can always "invent" new words, groot can't do that if his entire vocabulary extends to "i", "am", "we", "are" and "groot". Also, in natural languages, you can always invent new sentences by combining meaning-bearing elements (morphemes or words) in a way they have never been combined before: "establish" vs. "establishment" vs "establishmentary" vs. "establishmentarian" vs "establishmentarianism"... or "I see a cat" vs "I see a cat that scared a dog" vs "I see a cat that scared a dog that hunted a man" vs "i see a cat that scared a dog that hunted a man that ate an apple"... Groot's "language" simply lacks syntax, which, according to the vast majority of linguists, would disqualify it as a "natural language". The keyword to look at is called "recursion". An interesting read in this regard is the ongoing "battle" between Nevins et al and Dan Everett.

I would say Groot's language is actually only consisting one word, technically. I mean, you can might as well consider 'I am Groot' one word since you can't change the order of the words or even leave any out. Groot never says "Groot Am I" or "Am Groot." So it's honestly one huge word for him at this point.

I disagree with the fact that you claim Groot's language is comparable to ours due to the English dictionary when you just spent all that time talking about the variations possible with English words and didn't count that but did count it for "I am Groot".

Matpat, you made another episode on Guardians of the Galaxy, it’s titled, “Why Guardians of the Galaxy May be the best...” that’s actually all I can see when you’re scrolling down. Believe me, just look, there’s an adult Groot tilted and smiling. About 1:21 to 1:23, I guess.
