Alright, I've seen a lot about creating more unique characters around here, but they don't seem to touch much on dialogue, specifically vocabulary. Most RP dialogue I've seen around here reads like either Coruscanti or Tatooine Basic because that's about the extent of what we see in the movies. I'm as guilty of this as anyone. I'm playing an Onderonian Mandalorian and a Refugee District born-and-bred Nosaurian, both of whom speak like Tatooine natives with a little more of those Star Wars curses I love so much. That said, this resource will be a learning experience for me as well as you, and I would encourage input from others (I'm looking at you Sith I-5 with your Jawa-speaking expertise) 1. How so I use different languages in an RP? The most effective method that I've seen is to sprinkle your dialogue and thought with phrases or words of the non-Basic/English language. Altough I've seen it done to a reasonable effect to put the majority of dialogue in the other language and include a translation in () or some other way of setting it apart. Another method, albeit, one that avoids the fun of using foreign words, is the ones used in comic books in which a character who does not speak Basic will speak <Like This> to indicate that what you're reading is a translation. This would probably be best for a Wookie character or any others whose speech does not fit human writing conventions. 2. Let's get to some different languages: First Mando'a, the language of the Mandalorians. [link=http://www.starwars.com/eu/lit/novel/f20060228/img/mandoa_language.pdf]Here[/link]'s a list of Mando'a Words and phrases. Huttese is (I think) the second most common language in the Star Wars universe, next to Basic. Although I'm a bit confused by their inclusion of translations of Earth locations like France and English, I found [link=http://huttese.fw.hu/]this[/link] to be a useful resource. Shyriiwook, the language of the Wookies, is a series of growls and barks. I have no idea why it is on the front page of Wookiepedia's article on language, but here's a link to the Wookiepedia's rather abbreviated Shyriiwook article: [link=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Languages_in_Star_Wars#Shyriiwook]Shyriiwook[/link] That's all I could find for now, although I'll be checking back and updating periodically, but like I said, I'd appreciate some extra input.
