A worldbuilding manifesto(Or: a discussion of science fiction clichés)
Long ago, I created a space opera universe, with high hopes of setting all kinds of awesome stories in it. That didn't work out. Took me years to write just one. Even writing down all I knew about the setting didn't help. After some reworking, it finally yielded another story written by a friend, and a forum-based roleplaying adventure. And that was all.
My third attempt at worldbuilding came much later, and went straight to science-fantasy. But even though almost everything changed, most of my old principles turned out to have aged just fine. So here they (still) are. Enjoy.
Earth should not be special in any way
Aren't you annoyed by the anthropocentrism and Terracentrism of most science fiction? I mean, when Earth isn't the pinnacle of galactic civilization (usually without justification), it must be a

An Anatomical Look into Anthropomorphic Speech
An Anatomical Study on the Speech Capabilities of Anthropomorphic Creatures
By, Russell Tuller
Traditional Anthro Artist/Amateur Anatomist
Recently I had gotten another question from someone viewing one of my many Anatomical Studies, concerning an Anthropomorphic Animal's ability to recreate human voice and language. This is a question I have been asked about MANY times and I felt that it was about time I put my ideas concerning the subject onto paper for everyone to read and speculate upon.
My following statements are based upon my Own Visual Interpretations of combined Human and Animal Anatomy. Which I use when creating Anthropomorphic Art and Anatomical Studies for my Gallery.
The Question of Language vs Intelligence
I suppose we can only really speculate on the full extent that an anthro creature's ability to vocalize human words would be. But I'd say they would surely be able to create their own intelligent forms of speech on their own over time,
