If we are going to speak to, communicate, trade, and negotiate with aliens, we need to start thinking about how they communicate.
There's so much to understand, so much to ponder when dealing with alien beings. These sentient creatures may not be bipedal. Some may measure stature by now many eyeballs a creature has. Others may be thick-skinned brutes, yet be easily offended. This path of research will put us on the path of being able to understand them, negotiate with them, trade with them, and even entice them with out culture.
