This article is about the language. You may be looking for the Troig species.

Troig was the native language of the Troig species,[1] who hailed from the planet of Pollillus. Because each Troig had at least two heads, the language used the infix sin to separate the two elements of a Troig's personal name.[2] For instance, in the Troig tongue, the name of the Podrace commentator more widely known as Fode and Beed was Fodesinbeed.[1]

Behind the scenes[]

The Troig language was first mentioned, albeit indirectly, in J.D. Wiker's 2001 Secrets of Tatooine supplement to Wizards of the Coast's Star Wars Roleplaying Game. Although it[3] and several other sources describe the differences between indigenous Troig naming conventions and the simpler names that members of the species used with non-Troigs,[2][4][5][6][7] Benjamin Harper's Obsessed With Star Wars, a 2008 trivia book, is the first source to explicitly name the language used in such native appellations.[1]
