Language overview

Shyriiwook (literally tongue of the tree people), also known as Wookieespeak, is a fictional language that belongs to the Star Wars universe. This is the main trade language of the Wookiees, who also speak Xaczik (on the Wartaki Islands and in other coastal regions) and Thykarann, a dialect of Shyriiwook with a rich technical lexicon, spoken on the planet Kashyyyk.

Due to lack of data, this program can only count accurately up to 10 in Shyriiwook. Please contact me if you can help me counting up from that limit.
