Speculative Single-Word Translation

This article or section includes speculation, observations or opinions possibly supported by lore or by Blizzard officials. It should not be taken as representing official lore.


  • "An'shel" = void
  • "Ma" = are
  • "Oou" = die
  • "Puul" = drink
  • "Skshgn" = fear
  • "Ssaggh" = live
  • "Ywaq" = they
  • "Yeh'glu" = blood
  • "Zuq" = life


  • "Gul'kafh" = Conjunction meaning "gaze into"

  • "On'ma" = Conjunction meaning "It is" (Equal to English "It's")

  • It is quite possible that the language is not original to the faceless ones, but rather the Old Gods, or just Yogg-Saron himself, as during the encounter in Ulduar, he roars two lines which follow the same language pattern.


  • The language bears a striking resemblance to, and is no doubt inspired by, the language that the Cult of Cthulhu chants from the H.P. Lovecraft works.
