Graalek/Graalen[edit | edit source]
Graalek is the written form of Graalen, a native language of Andoria.
Graalen is a consonontal-root language where consonant pairs provide a word's core subject matter, while the vowels specify the word's type. For example, the consonant pair ND-R connotes worlds, planets, or "everything." The vowel set A-O indicates a simple singular noun. So Andor means, simply, "world" while Ondara means "music" (literally: the sound the world makes). The suffix -YA or -IA modifies a noun to prominence, so when Andorians became aware of other worlds, their world became more popularly known as Andoria, meaning the world.
Phrases[edit | edit source]
- "Let the heat drop." - Advice to keep calm, cool down. (FASA RPG module: The Orions: Book of Common Knowledge)
