The predator language is virtually untouched upon within the films, there seems to be a definitive alphabet but no distinct words or phrases are revealed in the films.

CreationEdit

In the AVP novels by Steve Perry he created a rather in-depth language for his Yautja, but the DH press Hish variant of the predator also have their own language with unique words.
