Phonons are packets of acoustic energy, similar to photons (light particle versions of light waves). Physicists study phonon behavior to understand the science of sound and the mechanics of acoustics, a study which informs topics as varied and important as concert hall design and atmosphere bubble turbulence.

Human beings are masters of sound and hence of phonons. Human beings make loud rockets, boisterous music, and of course, human beings make rhythmic (or pulsating if you will) gesture-rich sounds which comprise language.

English is the predominant language spoken on Earth. English is comprised of simplified Germanic-derived sounds and an efficient but boisterous grammar that makes use of gerunds (action verbs used as object nouns --- i.e., "swimming pool") and contractions (shorthand acronym-like words --- i.e., "will not is the same as won't").

Because language comprises the bulk of communication, and language employs aural sounds that utilize easy-difficult ranges of vowel-consonant tone changes (i.e.,'Ire,''Wire,''Tire,' etc.), language is similar to the either-or construction structure of computer language (i.e.,'true-false,''up-down,'' either-neither,' etc.).

Because computer languages are simplified communication encodings, human language dialects (simplified sub-culture languages) such as Ebonics (spoken by African-Americans in inner cities) have been compared to computer languages.

Human beings study the efficiency of electronic computer signals because these signals encode intelligible sign language-like communication. As such, the tones and pitches and turns made in human language words such as "Easy," "Cool," and "Ouch," are perception events of smooth or rough changes.

Therefore, languages are efficient encodings of auditory signals (or phonons if you will). Perhaps relevant communication-themed Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Liar, Liar" (1997) signify civilization fascination with using language symbols to characterize the wonder and complexity of discrete sounds.

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
