Names of Monkey Sounds

I saw this study the other day that played the sounds that monkey's make to other monkeys. The sounds were scientifically labeled: "coos, grunts, barks, and harmonic arches." I thought that "harmonic arch" probably isn't what the monkey had meant to say!
There is an even more extensive list in this paper Y. E. Cohen 2006, but I have censored it for the general public . . . you'll know why if you look it up.

  1. Can't see why you censored it, except that nailing little helmets to their poor monkey sculls seemed kind of cruel.
