«I have come for the bounty on this Wookiee.»
―"Boushh" speaking UbeseGnome-speakernotesListen (file info)[src]

Ubese was a language that sounded like a scratchy, guttural monotone.[2] It was spoken by Princess Leia Organa, who conversed in it when she infiltrated the palace of Jabba the Hutt on the planet Tatooine[1] in the guise of the Ubese bounty hunter Boushh.[3] The protocol droid C-3PO was fluent in Ubese, and translated it for Jabba when his master was having a conversation with "Boushh".[1]
