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

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
