If you look at the matter a bit closer, you will find that every language is a code for something else, no matter if it is spoken, written, sent by flags or vibrated through the touch of hands, like Ashley's family does. (- "That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.") Calling a thing, a concept, or whatever, by a word, is a way of representing it with something else, ergo encoding it.
As far as I am concerned, the joke in Jasper's invention is that a being that uses a language that is clearly not suitable to be spoken, nonetheless has a mouth and is able to express himself in a human tongue.
