Tom Purdom. Golva’s Ascent. (Asimovs March 2012)

Fast-paced adventure. Golva is a feline-type creature, one of two intelligenct races, on whose planet a party of humans has arrived.

That party of humans has splintered into factions, and two humans have left the group to join his group of ‘itiji’, from whom he has learnt their language. Very, very well.

Captured by the main group of humans, Golva has to trust in one of the scientists and make his escape from her. There is plenty of dialogue in the story, with his command of English absolutely perfect.
