Why should we work so hard to teach a computer how to understand and speak 
in a human language, when it can create a language for us thats easier for 
it to understand?

We write lines of code and rules and all to get a computer to listen and 
transcribe and talk back to us, when it might be easier to change our 
language to something it at its core better understands?

Its like we talk/communicate to a dog, but in frequencies and means it does 
not use normally.  Dog might create a con-language that is based on higher 
or lower auditory frequencies or on visual or smells and like?

I know a Language for us humans is mostly all auditory with some visual due 
to things like hand jestures and some facial expressions and maybe tone. 
yes? But can a computer understand all the areas we humans use for 
communicaition? Not easily?
