Dragon talk

Dragons do talk in other folktales, but usually only a few sentences. Smaug however is fluent in Common speech and talks like a British upper class twit.

Left out of the movie: The thrush understand Bilbo, and Bard because of his ancestry, is able to understand the Thrush's language...
