Well, very similar. They both have the same concept as their basis. Though not exactly the same, there is more to the Grongi language than there is to Al Bhed, but yes same sorta idea.

So how do they express prime numbers? o_O;

Through addition, presumably. Like, "9+4" for "13".

Basically yes, there is a system they use starting with 9:
10=9+1
11=9+2
12=9+3
18=9x2
20=9x2+2

300=9×9×3+9×6+3

300 is like this becuase 9x9=81 but multiplying by 9 again goes beyond 300, so 9x9x3 = 243 (anything higher than 3 goes beyond 300) so then need 57. 9+ any number between 1-8 is too low and 9x any number higher than 6 is too high, so 9x6 = 54 so just 3 left to add. So number beyond 9 always start by multiplying or adding to 9 to get as close to the number as possible and then adding what remains by again multiplying or adding to 9.

Seems ridiculously complicated for a TV show language, but then again, there are people that speak Elvish and Klingon, so who am I to judge?

First I want to say: that Grongi language has something mysterious, so at first I didn't understand what they were talking about. I have seen the whole series and I still like it, although I didn't understand everything (I'm not Japanese and at that time I didn't know that much Japanese to understand). But I kinda like that language.

@ Lunagel: that's right...

English term :lol:

Their number are also translated from Katakana English instead of Japanese.

It reflects the cultural exchange in ancient Rinto era :twisted:

After reading this thread, my OCD about not knowing what the Grongi were saying is relaxed.

Watching Kuuga thanks to TV-N and some one on Veoh who kindly subbed the series.

I am able to understand some of the Grongi language....at least, I just assume that I understand some of it. lol. When certain situations are happening and grongi is spoken, I translate it in my mind into what would normally be said in Japanese in that situation... like "todome da!" etc. haha
