    Groot became a fan favorite right away despite, or perhaps because, he can only say the simple phrase "I am Groot". Now, so far in the MCU we've seen only two people able to fully understand the little twig - Rocket and Thor. What I want to know is, can you or I learn to speak Groot? Could it be a REAL language? Let's find out!

    So there's enough variations of the phrase to make a language vocabulary sure, but you're telling me that every time he says the phrase he's only saying one word?

    In your calculation you forgot one small thing - There may be a similar number of ways to say "I am groot" and of words in English, but when groot says "I am groot" he doesn't say a mere word but a whole sentence. Also, based on the explanation you gave in the end, the meaning of the language is in fact not in the "I am groot" part but in another part that's heard underneath it so (almost) this whole video is just a waste time.
