D&D General Creatures with speech-based attacks?


CR 1/8
I'm trying to recall monsters (any edition, but not setting-specific) that have vocal, non-spellcasting attacks or effects: speaking, muttering, singing, etc. I'm especially looking for ones that indicate a verbal aspect to the trait (ie, not merely noise-based effects, such as howls or screeches).

Aside from a just a few, I'm drawing a blank... and I'm not really sure how to go about searching. All I've got off the top of my head:
  • allip
  • banshee (possibly)
  • gibbering mouther
  • harpy
I know I'm missing others, but don't really have any idea how to go about search for them. Any suggestions would be helpful!

The leucrotta and kenku have (at least in earlier editions, not sure about 5th) voice mimicry abilities, in that they can make themselves sound like anyone they've heard speaking.
