Is it possible to communicate with dolphins like Darwin on seaQuest?

Dolphins have the ability to make all sorts of sounds, many of which I'm sure you've heard on "Sea Quest", however, we don't know for sure if they are trying to "talk" to us, and if they are, we can't as yet understand their language any better than we do the bark of a dog. For a little more information on how we communicate with both dolphins and dogs, please see number 272 in the archive of biology questions and answers.
