"Mesh'in'ga - The battle dreamtime"

If there's one thing I'd like to know, it's what the hell this is.

Gambusia, Yautja, 9 years ago

"The battle dreamtime" = Dreaming of battles?

Well that'd be my first guess anyway.

alienxeno, Yautja, 9 years ago

WTF am i reading?

Deathdrop, Yautja, 9 years ago

What does the title say?

alienxeno, Yautja, 9 years ago

i know what it means......but i think those words are made up.

WTF did you make?

Gambusia, Yautja, 9 years ago

Yep your right Alienxeno they are made up. Steve Perry and his daughter S. D. Perry made up the predator language when they wrote the AvP novels.

Deathdrop, Yautja, 9 years ago

It's from an official novel.

ragnarok521, Yautja, 9 years ago

I take it from a page that is only of the pred things and there it was but I dont know if its invented or what ....

-Bloo-, Yautja, 9 years ago

Of course it was made up, I highly doubt a Predator paid a visit to the author's home one night and gave him a list of dirty words to throw at people.

That said, I wonder if the words were based on any pre-existing language.

Deathdrop, Yautja, 9 years ago

I remember reading Steve Perry saying something like "it had to be guttural like German," but that's about the most of it. I'm sure one or two words are taken from real languages.

predalien1170, Yautja, 7 years ago

ok if i use this guied and insted of saying dont kill me i mean you no harm and say your mothers a prostitute i will kill you. i will kill you.

skull_ripper, Yautja, 7 years ago

That's... okay then. Hmm, what would you say if I said my mother was a prostitute when I really mean to say where is the bathroom?

On the note of the language, I despise this feeble, run of the mill Sci fi, bullshit. I mean, have you heard the sounds they make? Do they ever, ever say anything that resembles these words? I doubt the Yautja language would even be usable by humans, most likely consisting of the clicking noises and guttural croaks they make.

The avp wiki has pages on their vocabulary you can add to this list
