Australian researchers are teaching a pair of robots to communicate linguistically like humans by inventing new spoken words, a lexicon that the roboticists can teach to other robots to generate an entirely new language. The robots generate these words from a set of syllables, combining syllables in pairs, and then cooperatively refine their meaning through various games.

There's a few videos showing that they use DTMF signals to communicate. It seems like it'd be pretty fun to try to use a keypad to talk to the robots. Solresol and Sarus also use tones for language, though they're based on a seven-note scale.
