Gargish is the language used by the gargoyle race in the Ultima computer game series. It is also the language used in magic spellcasting within the game. The language is remarkably complex for one that arose out of a game. However, the vocabulary is prohibitively small, limiting its use. The Gargish language has its own alphabet, although it can also be expressed using ASCII characters. The language is very flexible. The difference between nouns, verbs, and adjectives is expressed through intonations and gestures. Gargoyles avoid using pronouns or verb tense unless it is crucial to comprehension; therefore the language is often spoken in the infinitive.
