  • Well, they both would need to be rational agents with an equal desire for successful communication. An apathetic communication partner would not communicate, even if rational.

A British couple decided to adopt a German baby. They raised him for years, however they began to get worried because he never spoke, and they believed that he was mentally handicapped, going as far as to take him to therapy, which was fruitless. Then, when the child was 8 years old, he had a Strudle, and said “It is a little tepid.”

His parents, of course shocked that he was suddenly speaking, asked: “Wolfgang, why have you never spoken before?”, to which the child replied: “Up until now, everything had been satisfactory.”

Interestingly, in the joke, the British _did_ successfully communicate with the German baby, through food and had been the whole time.
