"'s rough on my throat, I lost my voice for a day after bugging Zeb by serenading him in Shyriiwook."
―Sabine Wren[src]

Shyriiwook was a language of the Wookiees, others of which included Thykarann and Xaczik.[2] The language consisted of growling and howls, and thus was difficult for anyone not a Wookiee to speak or learn and was also rough on their throat. It had over one-hundred-and-fifty words for wood,[4] and many words for bloodshed.[5]

Sabine Wren was capable of speaking of smattering of Shyriiwook, but lost her voice after annoying Garazeb Orrelios for a day, serenading him in Shyriiwook.[3]

Han Solo was capable of understanding it, as he usually understood what Chewbacca was saying.[6] Major Harter Kalonia, who served as a physician in the Resistance, was fluent in Shyriiwook.[1] Rey was able to learn Shyriiwook due to her interaction with offworlders on Jakku.[1]
