    Wicket speaks English?

    In ROTJ does Wicket say "No!" to Leia? It sounds like it.

    could be
    but maybe he just heard the word somewhere and now says it all the time or "no" means something different in "ewokish"
    or it's just a guy in a costume... j/k

    Man, I was so hoping for this to be an Ewoks movie question.

    A lot of unrelated languages on Earth use the "no" sound (or something very similar to it) to mean the same thing. Ewokese was based on one or two actual languages. I forget which, but the appendix to the Intergalactic Phrase Book tells how Ben Burrt came up with that (and many other) SW languages.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    I swear one of the Ewoks in ROTJ turns and says, "that guy's wise."

    Wicket can speak English but Teek can't? Puh-lease, Teek is infinitely smarter.

    Teek is beyond such mundane forms of communication. Only the truly sublime can understand the wisdom of what seems like senseless jibber-jabber.

    And I'm sure the other one replies with "More than I am short".

    Wicket also says, "I gotta."

    According to an article I read in an old issue of Star Wars Insider, the Ewoks are actually speaking Tibetian.
