How come in the movies, Bossk speak in the...odd language, but in comic books (Maybe in TCWs series too, I don't watch that type of scum) he speak in basic? —Unsigned comment by126.96.36.199 (talk • contribs).
Pretty sure Bossk doesn't have any dialogue in the movie. He only hisses like trandoshans are known to do.40 Year Old Virgin 08:35, July 31, 2011 (UTC)
The simple answer is that Bossk is bilingual. In addition to his native Dosh language, he also speaks Basic in other appearances besides TCW, such as The Bounty Hunter Wars series of novels. You might liken his line from The Empire Strikes Back to a bilingual real-world speaker who may utter a curse word in his native foreign language. And to respond to 40 Year Old Virgin, Bossk does utter a line in the film. See this corresponding CCG card. Toprawa and Ralltiir 23:54, August 1, 2011 (UTC)
Ahh right you are. What does he actually say? Sorry but that link doesn't work for me. 40 Year Old Virgin 09:32, August 2, 2011 (UTC)
According to that CCG card, the line spoken by Bossk is "Res luk ra'auf." I can't remember if any source tells us what he's actually saying. Toprawa and Ralltiir 19:30, August 2, 2011 (UTC)
