This month (july 2014), researchers from Scotland claim to have identified 66 gestures used intentionally to communicate by wild chimpanzees in Uganda. The new study, published in the journal Current Biology, created the first-ever chimpanzee dictionary of sorts, deciphering just what the apes were saying to each other.

Some of the highlights:
- 66 gestures (many with the hands involved) are used intentionally to communicate 19 meanings by wild chimpanzees
- Researchers analyzed >4500 cases to extract true (non-play) meanings for 36 gestures
- Gestures have the same meaning(s) across individual signalers
- Flexible use of several gestures for same goal is higher during social negotiation

Here's a detailed report presented by the researchers describing how the individual gestures correlate with behavior:

I have been interested in communication in chimps for awhile, My interest was peaked when I seen a chimp touch a ladies eyes, nose mouth and ears just like my son does to me , He also has a few other gestures that after researching I found common in chimps ...These gestures have not been learned from watching chimps ...my thoughts on it are that it must be a primal form of communication that is instilled in us ...Thank you for posting the article
