So lemme get this straight. You guys think that *ghaH* is for any 
singular thing the speaker believes can communicate in some way, *'oH* 
is for any singular thing the speaker believes cannot communicate in any 
way, *chaH* is for plural beings capable of using language regardless of 
what you think about them, and *bIH* is for plural things not capable of 
using languages regardless of what you thinking about them. Except at 
night, on Tuesday, of course.

You don't think that Okrand just got tired of saying "capable of using 
language" and shortened it to "communicate"?

What are the odds of getting a Royal Fizbin, anyway?
