The Necropolitan language was a language spoken by the Humans inhabitants of Necropolis, a planet that served as a burial place for the Core Worlds. The planet's name iself meant "City of the Dead." The Necropolitan language possessed its own writing system, which could be seen on the numerous gravestones scattered across the tombworld's landscape, sometimes with a translation in Galactic Basic, the most common language of the galaxy. While he did not know the Necropolitan language, the young Human Zak Arranda could still guess the meaning of some gravestones' inscriptions.
