    Scientists have discovered an elephant that can speak Korean.But Koshik, who talks by putting his trunk in his mouth, has a vocabulary of just five words.He was recorded at a zoo in South Korea imitating human speech for words that translate into English as "hello", "sit down", "no", "lie down" and "good". But it is not believed he means what he says.Researchers reported in the journal Current Biology that Koshik's language skills could provide important insights into the biology and evolution of vocal learning.
