    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!

    It could be a language that we can understand think about how Groot says “I am Groot“ The language could be based on the number of letters in the sentence ,it could be based on how he says it ,it could be based on the tone of his voice when he says it, it could even be based on how loud it is when he says it.So really it could be a language.You FilmTheory are wrong

    Your calculation putting Groot's number of words around the same as the English language doesn't work, because in universe, when Groot is speaking Groot, the phrase "I am Groot" carries the same amount of information as a sentence, not a word. The English language _technically_ has 10^570 possible sentences (more than the estimated number of atoms in the observable universe), but even if we assume you have a vocabulary that is only 3000 words large, and we restrict sentence length to 15 words, as that is the average word count of a sentence (which is a little unfair since this sentence alone has 155 words), that still leaves us with 1.385x10^52 possible combinations (permutations) of words (a large portion of which are meaningless due to a massive portion of them being nonsense strings of random letters, but even if we assume 0.000000001% (one trillionth) of those word strings make enough sense to be understood in any capacity, we still get 1.385x10^43, (fun fact: this is ten tredecillion) a number which is still around one hundred undecillion (yes, that is a real number) times bigger than the 175,616 possible number of ways you could say "I am Groot").
    This doesn't mean Groot isn't viable as a language, as 175,616 possible sentences is more than functional, however, this level of depth would be at or near the _absolute_ bare minimum for a language to function. For reference, the number of different 3 word combinations (permutations) you can make in tonki pona is 1,815,726, around five times the amount of sentences even possible in Groot, and this is just with a limit of 3 words. Increasing the word cap by any amount makes astronomical increases in the number of combinations (permutations).

    Rewatching this today, I just realized something. And subsequently ruined part of the theory for myself. Yes, there are as many variations in ways you can say I am Groot as there are words in the English language, but those are WORDS. I am Groot is used as a sentence, and in order to have the variety as the English, you would need to say a bunch of 'I am Groot' s in sequence in order to create a thought and not just point out objects or ideas like a toddler.
    So "Welcome to Game Theory" would be, like, I am Groot i Am Groot I am gRoot I am Groo(t)
    Now I'm sad.
