Nerglish is the languages spoken by murlocs, makrura, gilblin and a few other aquatic races. Nerglish is a low aquatic tongue akin to Low Common for cultures that dwell in the deeps. Makrura speak Nerglish (and were perhaps the first to use that tongue).[1] Murlocs usually only speak their racial dialect of the language, also known simply as Murloc, and nothing else,[2] although some have been known to learn other languages.[3] It is unknown how much of a difference there is between murloc and makrura dialects of the language.

Murlocs of the Winterfin tribe have their own unique murloc dialect.[4]
