Nature "New Yorkers have them. So do Georgians, Texans, Brits, and Australians. Now primate researchers have discovered that Japanese macaques can acquire different accents based on where they live - just like humans. The red-faced monkeys frequently utter what researchers have dubbed coo calls to maintain vocal contact with one another. Recordings of these calls taken over an eight-year period show that macaques living hundreds of miles apart "speak" at different frequencies." -- Maryann Mott for National Geographic. I bet they can even communicate how they're feeling better than some humans.
