"Negola dewaghi wool dugger?"

Aqualish was the language spoken by the species of the same name. From a human perspective, it sounded like nerf bleats.[1] According to the protocol droid C-3PO,[2] who claimed to be fluent in over six million forms of communication,[3] an amateur translator of Aqualish could easily confuse the words for "seven" and "seventeen." Sabine Wren, a Mandalorian weapons expert who rebelled against the Galactic Empire, could speak Aqualish. During a mission to steal a cargo of T-7 ion disruptor rifles from the Empire, Wren used that knowledge of hers to deliberately mistranslate an exchange between Maketh Tua and the Aqualish arms dealer Amda Wabo, leading Tua to the wrong docking bay.[2]

It shared certain structural similarities with Huttese and Rodian, enough that if you learned one of these languages it made the others easier to learn.[4]
