Asian elephants have a nasal pronunciation

The elephants emitted their low frequency ‘rumbles’ mainly through their trunk or through their mouth and trunk simultaneously, and only seldomly through their mouth alone. This is the first study to conclusively demonstrate the combined oral and nasal call emission in a non-human animal.
