Who felt the need to clarify that the elephants don’t talk?

So basically we add "-e" at the end of the word when we make it definite plural? But i'm sure there are exceptions

They are silent, but they never forget :)

"Talk" doesn't work for "speak" on this one.

Why can't I say "don't speak" rather than do not?

You got it wrong just by typing "don't"?
