Abstract

Human speech encodes both referential
and affective information, but evidence for
a similar phenomenon in animal
vocalizations has been lacking. Recent
work on suricates, an African mongoose,
shows that animal alarm calls simultaneously encode information about both predator type and the signaler’s perception of urgency.
