I think it would be cool if we could get a list of all the little things that units say when you click on them. I'm no linguist so this is all just written as it sounds.

Does anyone know if these are actual languages, or if they are just gibberish?


When you click on the unit-
Spanish
-Preparado!
-Si?
-Hola
-Qual y su commando?

Portuguese
-Qual y es su orde?
-Si?
-Hola!
-Prepara!

Dutch
-Clar?
-Hallo?

British
-Commandamant?
-Yes?

French
-Wee? (or Oui i think)

Ottoman
Russian
German

When you tell them to do something:

Spanish -Si!

Portuguese
-Si!
-Vo is goo tah!
-Cassadore (if you tell the settler to hunt)
-Liniadore (if you tell the settler to cut wood)

Dutch
-E Clah!
-Ick du hets!
-Ee doos!

British
-I wall!
-Ee willz!

French
Ottoman
Russian
German

These are real languages. In fact, there was a thread about this quite some time ago. Oh, and the Dutch word is 'klaar'.

All real languages, the English is just an older dialect (obsolete by the games time period even, I believe). ES decided they thought it would be funny if we could undestand just one civ.

Ender_Ward is Russian and translated the Russian Explorer's sentences a while back too.

You'll remember that four (!) hour game against that crazy Russian that wouldn't give up, not realizing he was playing someone who in real life actually is a crazy Russian, that won't give up either. - Ender_Ward

Spanish
-Preparado!
-Si?
-Hola
-Qual y su commando?
I think that are all ture, except the last one, that is "¿Cual es su comando?"
Remember in Spanish we use both the ¿? signs.
It's Cual not Qual.
Comando is with one M not 2.
"y" in spanish is like "and", and and "es" in this sentence is used like a "is"

¿Cual es su comando?
What is your command?

Here's the old thread "What do units say?"

FYI. Very informative, possibly needs updating with TWC and TAD civs.

Crunkatog on ESO
Bart331 balance suggestion: aztec: remove civ
Voltiguer: Ender, Sioux in 1.04 will be a top civ, no matter how many layers of Sioux goggles you put on
schildpad on Elephants: ...their mansabdar unit sucks so hard it looks like a black hole
Crunkatog on Steam.

Well now that this has gotten started, or I started it...

Español es muy difícil a veces. Estoy apreniendo español.

Eicho, ¿te gusta comer helado argentino?

I think I better stop before the mods get mad.

After some poking around, I found the Mohawk Language Grammar Standardization site. Although it's not a dictionary, and I don't speak Mohawk so I can't put the words I did find in proper tense and whatnot, or even spell them correctly, here's what I did find that may help shed some light on the subject.

Villagers
What they say (my spelling) = what they apparently mean (Grammar entry "x")
_________________________________________________________
"Hen?" = "yes?" ("hen" = yes)
"Wakta'are" or "Waktahare" = no idea, but is a first person past tense verb, probably "I heard/understood"
"Ohnahatten" = probably "what is it? what is your command?" ("oh ___-ten" = what...is?)
"Ike" = can't find anything for this, possibly a particle word like "Okay", "Ready"
"Wake" = can't find anything for this, possibly a particle word like "Okay", "Ready"
"Keniota" = build? (From "kanónhsa" = house?)
"Katstah" = used when on berry bush ("kahi" = fruit?)
"Owarog" = meat, hunting ("o'wà:ron" = meat)
"Oiente" = "wood" ("ó:iente" = wood)
"Ikerons" = used on mining (first or third person singular present tense verb form of some sort)
"Kientokwas" = used on farm/plantation (maybe related to "tsiénthos" = you are planting)

Military Units

"Ikontenki" = I'm going ("enkahtén:ti" = I shall go)
"Kattorats" = no idea what this means but it apparently ends in a plural verb ending, so maybe "we're attacking" or "let's attack" or a command "Attack!"
"Tekatkenies" or "Teka'kenies" = no idea at all...

Anyone who is more familiar with Mohawk or Iroquois languages of any kind, we would appreciate your input.

SIOUX

St. Joseph's Indian School Lakota Instruction Curriculum

Annotated Lakota fables trans. Ella Deloria

Apparently Sioux villagers get more keys on their keyboards or have more fingers than Iro vills so I've taken a few shortcuts. nh = nasalize the preceding vowels; tx, px, kx, etc = add a "kh" sound after the consonant.


Villagers

"Táku" = What? (I also hear them say "Takú" which may mean the same thing)
"Ehn" and "Ehn-ehn" = Yes
"Wash-day" = Good, All Right, Okay, Ready (wasté = "good")
"Kagha, wakagha" = build, make (kágha = "make, build")
"Balé, wabalé" = I'm going (blá = go)
"Máni, wamani" = I'm going (máni = go, going, moving)
"Ohahn" = possibly same as "ehnhehn"
"Chahn" = wood (chháhn = "wood")
"Txaló" = meat (txaló = "meat")
"Washkuyecha" = no idea, but possibly from kuyá = "to send back, cause to gather/return"
"Wató, newató" = (farms) no idea.
"Yohaí, Yohayelo" = (mines, plantations) no idea.

Military units

"Unhkiciktépi" = Let's attack! (-ktepi = "kill" or kat'ápi = "smite, clobber with a club")
"Wichawakte" = Attack them, Maybe also "kill them" (wica = "those people" wakté = I kill)
"Akicita mehecha" = no idea, but Akicita = militia, police, soldiers, or warriors

Je suis blessé, je ne peux pas bouger (I am injured, I can't move.)
I actually think this is "I am wounded. I cannot go on.", but I could be wrong.

Well, cannot go on and cannot move could easily be different translation options for the word.
