Basic was the name of the most prevalent and most used language in the galaxy. It was spoken by species including—but not limited to—the Humans and the Pantorans, but not by the Ewoks and the Talz. The Gungans of Naboo spoke a heavily accented dialect of Basic, with many differences in terms of grammar and vocabulary. Most stormtroopers, the elite soldiers of the Galactic Empire, could only speak and understand Basic, despite the commonness of other languages such as Huttese.
