Who knew you were bilingual? According to a new study, believe it or not, you speak DOG.  Or, at least, you can understand dog. Researchers in Hungary found that people have a remarkable ability to figure out what their dog's different growls mean. For the study, people listened to audio recordings of dogs growling and barking while they played . . . guarded their food . . . or faced a stranger who they thought was threatening. And people correctly identified what the dog was growling about 63% of the time . . . which is higher than the level of random chance. The researchers also found women were better at speaking dog than men.
