Scientists identified original calls in “high-density” groups, The Telegraph reported, with individuals using novel sounds that were quickly picked up. However, these calls are dropped just as quickly. The researchers compared the phenomena to schoolchildren who “go through fads” in which certain phrases “suddenly become popular before just as quickly becoming grossly uncool,” the paper said.
