    Groot became a fan favorite right away despite, or perhaps because, he can only say the simple phrase "I am Groot". Now, so far in the MCU we've seen only two people able to fully understand the little twig - Rocket and Thor. What I want to know is, can you or I learn to speak Groot? Could it be a REAL language? Let's find out!

    Objection! _Man always wanted to say that_ SO the conclusion you have is that Groot is pretty much a medical condition. The way my head is going is that to speak Groot EXACTLY like Groot would be impossible, but technically we could speak a variation of Groot that is what you explained in the rest of the video. Probably gonna post this on the subreddit, but figured it might as well be here too
