  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Iver lunJunasee Maybe, we should start, right here and now, start writing up a 'modern' version of the Sangheili language? Take what we can find laying around from other's research and such, and compile it here, filling in the blanks o+o I'll start: Eni (een-ee): Yes, affirmitive, postivtive [/quote] Compiling a complete translation of the sangheili language is impossible since most of the stuff they say is just jibberish and has no translation.

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Wolverfrog Maybe Sanghelios was one of the worlds Ancient Humanity invaded after the Flood crippled us, and then the Forerunners 'liberated' them from us and made them a servant race, but the language remained from the time of human occupation.

It'd explain the artistic direction of [i]The Duel,[/i] why their language sounds Japanese in [i]Halo 4[/i] and the ruins in [i]Babysitter.[/i][/quote]I agree, that would be a cool twist, and best of all, it would work (as far as I see anyway).

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] the real Janaka [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Wolverfrog It'd make sense for an isolated island nation like Japan to be most influenced by the language spoken by the Forerunners, since they had little to no exposure for tens of thousands of years to other human cultures. Over time the original Forerunner would warp until unrecognisable, but it'd contain the same phonemes and phonetics. If the Sangheili were a servant race of the Forerunners (pretty clear they were, by all the Forerunner relics on Sanghelios,) it'd explain why one of the oldest languages their people speak is so similar to Japanese. It too is a bastardisation of Forerunner; that much is apparently said in [i]Ghosts of Onyx[/i]. That's why the Sangheili in [i]Halo 4[/i] sound Japanese. [/quote]But how about if the connection between past en present through the Japanese language is from the ancient human beings, rather than Forerunners, because of their imprinted memories, Geas? I don't know if you've heard the audio book version of Primordium, but in it the Lord of Admirals speaks in a way that reminds me of Japanese. Idk...[/quote] I don't like audio-books, but I was just thinking myself that it's more likely to be Ancient Humanity who passed down the language. The ruins of [i]Babysitter[/i] are an obvious teller. I'll even say that Samurai masks (without the helm) are vaguely reminsicent of what the Lord of Admirals is described as wearing - they cover the lower half of the voice and leave the forehead and ears exposed, as well as the eyes because obviously you can't make iron visors. Proto-Japanese culture, from aesthetics to language, seems like a degraded version of what we know Ancient Humanity's culture. The question is why the Sangheili would share the same phonetics of that language. We haven't seen them at all in the Forerunner saga, but we know the Forerunners had a presence there from [i]Origins[/i] and all the Forerunner relics on Sanghelios. Maybe Sanghelios was one of the worlds Ancient Humanity invaded after the Flood crippled us, and then the Forerunners 'liberated' them from us and made them a servant race, but the language remained from the time of human occupation. That'd be a pretty cool twist, and it's honestly one I can see being pulled in [i]Silentium[/i] and then surfacing in the third K5 book.

  • There are different Sangheili languages - the ones we hear in [i]Reach[/i] and the ones in [i]Halo 4[/i] are different, as far as I'm aware, with the latter being a much older language - Neru Pe 'Odosima, for example. It sounds Japanese. You've got to wonder if there's something to that; one of the Sangheili's oldest languages uses the same phonetics as Japanese, Ancient Human ruins in [i]The Babysitter[/i] are Feudal Japanese in appearance... I'm studying the English Language at an analytical level, and that includes researching it's origins - I've read a fair few books on the subject, and inevitably learned about other languages too. Unlike English and most other languages, Japanese is a language with hazy origins; no one really knows where it first came from. It may share a similar font to Chinese in written language (Kanji), but spoken it's not like any other language on Earth, which is a rare thing in linguistics. Some of the more absurd theorists suggest the language was brought by Ancient Aliens. I know, obligatory 'I'm not saying it's aliens but aliens meme.' In the context of the Halo universe though, it's not so ridiculous. We [i]know[/i] we were visited by Ancient Aliens. What if the Japanese language is a descendant of whatever the Forerunners spoke? It'd make sense for an isolated island nation like Japan to be most influenced by the language spoken by the Forerunners, since they had little to no exposure for tens of thousands of years to other human cultures. Over time the original Forerunner would warp until unrecognisable, but it'd contain the same phonemes and phonetics. If the Sangheili were a servant race of the Forerunners (pretty clear they were, by all the Forerunner relics on Sanghelios,) it'd explain why one of the oldest languages their people speak is so similar to Japanese. It too is a bastardisation of Forerunner; that much is apparently said in [i]Ghosts of Onyx[/i]. That's why the Sangheili in [i]Halo 4[/i] sound Japanese. [Edited on 11.04.2012 10:02 AM PST]

  • [quote][b]Posted by:[/b] Jason W There is a few words in Glasslands and Thursday War if I remember right. Here is a small list that I found on Halopedia. Unggoy - Grunt Kig-Yar - Jackal Sangheili - Elite Yanme'e - Drone Jiralhanae - Brute Lekgolo - Hunter San' Shyuum - Prophet Huragok - Engineer Wort - Go Kaidon - Clan leader Nishum - Intestinal parasite or tapeworm [/quote] Damn, beat me to it.

  • *Sangheili language A dialect is a variation of a present language. Sangheili is not a variation of any present languages in the Halo universe. And no, I don't know what their words mean.
