Hozen (language)

From Wowpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

The language of the hozen is steeped in mystery. While the majority of the hozen are able to speak in a common language, they often include an assortment of other sounds and "words" that have yet to be translated by other races. Most jinyu scholars believe these additional words to be uncharitable or offensive in nature, but the matter is far from closed. To quote the great sage Ook Ook, "you can take the derk out of the jib, but you shouldn't put the jib in the derk."[1]
