According to the study published in the journal Current Biology, songbirds use shorter elements of words or sounds to form longer phrases. Linguists believe that this pattern, also known as Menzerath's law, could help to improve communication efficiency by making things easier to say or understand. Researchers also claim that similar factors could lead to the discovery of Menzerath's law in humans.
