The Sand People

"Koroght gaghgt Takt."
Sidrona Diath, speaking in Tusken[src]

Tusken was the language spoken by the Sand People of Tatooine. It was considered very primitive; to the untrained ear, it sounded like shrieking and hollering. It also included many grunts, growls and honking noises used as punctuations. However, it was really a complex language, and people from other species found it very difficult to learn.[1] Properly speaking in Tusken required a good amount of phlegm.[2] Protocol droids could be properly equipped with a Tusken language pack for fluency.[3]

Tusken language had no written form, relying instead only in oral tradition. The language consisted mostly of consonants.[1]
