    which one is good?

    Some scientists think that someday we may be able to talk with the spieces.
    (in this case, the spieces means dolphins)

    I want to say the same thing as above in different sentences.
    Which of the following sentences does sound good?

    Some scientists think that someday
    1. a dilogue with the spieces may come true.
    2. conversation with the spieces may be realized.
    3. interaction with the spieces is not a dream.
    4. communication with the spieces is not impossible.

    If you come up with another good idea, please tell me.

    3- interaction could be anything, so it's too wide to give the idea of some sort of language-based communication. A cat purring when you stroke it is interaction. 4 has a similar problem- we can already communicate with animals, like many pets, to a certain degree.

    hi,
    Please note I'm not a native speaker nor a teacher.

    In my opinion the first sounds best.

    The second sentence has some collocation issue. conversation might be kept, hold, made, occurring ....
    I have never seen or hear (what doesn't make it incorrect) "conversation to be realized".

    Regarding the remaining sentences I agree with Tdol.

    Cheers

    Re: which one is good?

    hi again,

    The second thought ..
    The conversation is sort of a goal which can be realized, achieved, accomplished, attained, reached...

    I'm sorry for the chaotic thoughts

    Cheers
