I think anamagi can still understand human speech, but they can’t speak themselves. As the crowd starts to leave, they hear a cackling coming from the stump. December 17th,9: While they perform, the crowd is astonished by the disappearance of a hat and a levitating horse; then, one of the members of the brigade asks if the King can make his dead dog return to life. Amused, Babbitty agrees to help out the poor Muggle. This enrages the King, who demands that the Muggle help him perform in front of his subjects to show off his new abilities.

Malfoy talks to Rita Skeeter, but it never says she talks back to him.
