"Ko rahto kama wahl bak?"
―Jabba the Hutt, speaking Huttese[src]

Huttese was the language spoken by the Hutts, a slug-like species who called Nal Hutta their homeworld.[1] It was also commonly spoken on Hutt-controlled planets like Tatooine.[2] Even on worlds such as Lothal, where Hutts were not in power, their tongue was still a widespread trade language. Despite its prevalence, Huttese was generally unknown to stormtroopers, the soldiers of the Galactic Empire, as most of them could not speak anything other than Galactic Basic.[3]

It shared certain structural similarities with Aqualish and Rodian, enough that if you learned one of these languages it would make the others easier to learn.[4]
