Numerals & Additional Glyphs[]

I would like to dispute the notion that canon Aurebesh is now limited to just the 26 letters. The tractor beam in A New Hope uses the numerals 1 & 2, and Dosmit Ræh's helmet has her name spelled with an enth, indicating that the additional glyphs are still canon.

  • You're right about that. But on the other hand, Star Wars 15 uses thrill+herf instead of thesh, nern+grek instead of nen, two osk instead of orenth, cresh+herf instead of cherek. If only there was a canon source that uses all of the classic Aurebesh... --LelalMekha (talk) 09:53, January 27, 2016 (UTC)

Source for "full" Aurebesh?[]

It appears that the personalized children book Star Wars Rebels: Battle Plans From Darth Vader contains an Aurebesh table that includes the additional glyphs AND the name of each letter (as can be seen here). Can we use that as a valid source to update the article? --LelalMekha (talk) 20:54, April 14, 2016 (UTC)


As seen in http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Rank_insignia_of_the_First_Order shouldn't the numerals be canon now?

(this is my first edit, please be kind if i did something wrong) Rant423 (talk) 16:49, January 2, 2017 (UTC)

Strange. These seem to be different to the normal numerals. In "Clone Cadets" numbers 1-5 are the same as Legends (as they would be), so four looks different from the First Order four. I did some research, and the numbers in the episode definitely represent 1-5. I guess this means either there are two ways of writing four, or one of them isn't Aurebesh. I'll hit up Pablo about it. -- Dr. Porter Resistance starbird (Talk|Contribs) 01:04, January 3, 2017 (UTC)
Even in Legends, there used to be two ways of writing numerals in Aurebesh. Both can be seen here. --Lelal Mekha Old Republic military symbol (Audience Room) 01:16, January 3, 2017 (UTC)
Interesting. Do we know the numbers on the rank insignia actually mean that though? Or should we just assume since they look exactly the same? -- Dr. Porter Resistance starbird (Talk|Contribs) 01:25, January 3, 2017 (UTC)
My wild guess (not supported by anything) is that one set represents cardinal numbers (1,2,3...) while the other represents ordinal numbers (1st, 2nd, 3rd...), but again - this is just a guess. Rant423 (talk) 09:28, January 3, 2017 (UTC)
Any reason why you added only numerals 1-5? in the link you posted, second image, on the leg you can clearly see also 0 and 8 (confirmed by description of the image)
So i think we can safely assume the numerals 0-9 that we all know? since they are all presents in Rebels. Our only doubt should be the ones in the First Order Insignia.Unsigned comment by Rant423 (talk • contribs).
Wow, you're right, I didn't notice that at all. So yeah, I guess this means we can put them all in. -- Dr. Porter Resistance starbird (Talk|Contribs) 09:52, January 3, 2017 (UTC)

Extra Symbols[]

I'm going through this to look for symbols. So far I found in Rebels 1x06 usage of "!" and "/", with the same symbols specified here . Right now I can't say for others symbols. Rant423 (talk) 10:39, January 3, 2017 (UTC)

here I found canon version of """, "'", "-" and ".". They are different from the diagrama linked above. They are almost ( i.imgur.com/rDRQQxx.png - I can't link since i'm new) equal to english. (yes, i made that image with my great artistic gifts) Rant423 (talk) 12:36, January 3, 2017 (UTC)

"Yirt" and "Yiry" used interchangeably in Canon page[]

From what I gather, "Yirt" may be a Legends relic, and "Yiry" may have been adopted by Canon. Maybe not though, it's unclear. The Canon page uses "Yiry" in the text entries, but shows "Yirt" in historical items from Legends in pictures, but does not explain any disparities between the character names. If someone knows why that is, it would be good to clarify it on the page. MeesaTooThanks (talk) 22:27, March 7, 2017 (UTC)

alphabetical order[]

g2g, but i think canon has Aurebesh letters in a different order than Aurebesh/Legends, but the canon article mainpic uses the Legends order? Will try to double check later unless someone wants to fix it now -- 23:02, May 6, 2018 (UTC)

Variants from "Rogue One" and "Solo"[]

According to Glyn Dillon, the graphics team in the art department working on Rogue One designed two fonts, "Dishabesh" (the one seen on Enfys Nest's helmet) and "Domabesh" (which can be seen on this Rogue One prop). Should we create new articles for those variants or just a note in the BTS section of this one? --Lelal Mekha The Uprising crest (Audience Room) 20:55, March 27, 2019 (UTC)

  • Probably BTS, until something confirms those names--DarthRuiz30 (talk) 20:57, March 27, 2019 (UTC)
    • Couldn't they be listed as "unidentified writing system?" I mean obviously they'd need a parenthetical clarification, but as long as there are canonical images of these writing systems, I see no reason why they shouldn't have articles. The names "Dishabesh" and "Domabesh" can be noted in their BTS sections. 21:12, September 21, 2020 (UTC)


The cover of the IU edition of Myths & Fables (seen here StarWars Comic-Con@Home: The Lightsaber Collection Revealed and More from the Lucasfilm Publishing Panel on StarWars.com (backup link)) has what is unambiguously an Aurebesh & on it. I think we should add that to this page. SilverSunbird (talk) 00:14, July 25, 2020 (UTC)
