Would you like to talk to an alien? Seriously, are you? Yes you are - and of course me too. But they don't speak Earth's language, so how then? A scientist named John Elliot working on it.
"According to several sources within the Buzz, the Englishman is developing a way to decipher alien languages into understandable words and sentences. How can he do this when no aliens have ever given voiceover samples? A blog from Discover Magazine explains that Elliott developed a computer program that analyizes 60 languages from around the world. The goal is to be able to find a trend among those very different languages that will reveal a pattern in the way aliens may communicate."
