How to Speak Parseltongue

The most fascinating language has the craziest answer.

The best child book of this decade would be the “Harry Potter” series. Now, all the readers of this series must have come across the word “Parseltongue”. It is said to be the language of snakes and any one who can speak this language is called “Parselmouth”.

Now, this ability can be inherited and hence is present in the genes.

I do not know how much is this true?

But, whatever it is, I would say that we can learn parseltongue if we can know of the hearing perception by our brain. I’m not sure about this, of how a human being can perceive a particular sound.

Some, of hypothesis say that it is the repeated usage of the particular word with a particular work that we can recognize a particular word or language.

Now, if this is the concept then I believe that we can even communicate with snakes if we can learn their language i.e. even we can become parselmouth and we don’t need any gene to understand that language as we don’t need any gene to learn any other language. Possibly, the problem we have to face is in correlating the work done by the snake and its hissing sound.

But, then whatever is the difficulty at least it is not impossible. This gives us the hope that we can learn this language someday.

    us some words in Parelmouth.

  2. What?

    On August 4, 2008 at 1:25 am

    It just seems like this article believes that Parseltongue is a real language… which, is stupid. Unless JK Rowling put in as much time as JRR Tolkien in terms of languages, I doubt anyone will be able to speak this “language” any time soon.

  3. Brittany

    Hmmmm. Mmhmm. Yeah, no Harry Potter isn’t real and people are not, and never will be, able to speak to snakes. Hissing is not a language. It’s just something they do to keep predators away. Screaming isn’t a language and neither is laughing. Jeez.

    I agree. It’s a power to just UNDERSTAND snakes and their feelings, even if they’re not using any real language.

    If anyone’s interested in some Parseltongue used in the movie, I know how to say a few phrases. For pronunciation, watch the second movie:

    heshasa – open up
    sia kha sashi – leave me alone
    sia kha sieth – leave him alone

    On June 1, 2009 at 3:51 am

    Well, Klingon became a speakable language so why not Parseltongue? But you all must know that snakes cannot actually hear, so we cannot actually ‘learn’ their language…

    For those of you who don’t know, Parseltongue is a fictional language. Fictional, meaning it was made up by J.K Rowling when she was writing the Harry Potter series. Parseltongue is not a real language!
    However, you can pick up some from the movie, when Harry speaks. It sounds like this – Sigh a hass see eth. That means – Leave him alone.

  23. Lexii

    On September 9, 2009 at 10:20 am

    We know that it is a fictional language.
    But we love it so much we want it to become a language that is recognised. After all Jedi is a recognised religion now..

    You know, it really isn\’t that far off. If you want to learn Parseltongue, just know that every animal has a sound that, consistently means a certain thing. They assign that sound to that thing by

    A. What did my parent call it?
    B.What sounds am I capable of making, what sound do I just really want to make when I see this?

    Believe it or not, Mother cats actually have a different noise for \”mouse\” than they do for \”Rat\” because if they were alerting their kittens of it’s presence, the kittens will be more careful if their mother says that there was a formidable rat in their midst than a mouse, which they could easily take.
    Cats are especially lingually adept, at a young age they already know alot of our vocabulary and what it means, so if your cat ever looks at you like it knows what you\’re saying, it might just.

    Just spend time with the animal in question, learn it\’s noises and consider why they are making that noise, and you will eventually learn to emulate it in an understandable manner. Many people already know how to interact with their cats, how to have simple conversations like \”Are you hungry?\” or \”good hunting today?\” or \”Come over here, I need attention.\”

    I doubt your snake conversation will ever be
    \”You see the game last night? Man,it was close.\”
    But it might be \”Hey, I\’m going to get you some food.\”

    A good example is \”Caveman\” language. look up at the sky, what noise do you want to make? It\’s big, so probably a really big sort of \”uuaaaah\”. Find a friend and hone \”Caveman language\” to the point where you could talk it in public. Expect stares.

    On April 30, 2010 at 5:17 am

    I think every animal in nature has a language or a way of communicating so, if we work out and learn them we could speak/communicate with the animals themselves.

    The following example passage of Parseltongue is a translation of the Parseltongue dialogue between Tom Marvolo Riddle and Morfin, recorded in English in Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, pp.341-2:


    “Efe iska?”-You speak it?

    “Sā, skæ. Hút fis Marvolo?”-Yes, I speak it. Where’s Marvolo?

    “Tæn. Suōs tænas, au?”-Dead. Died years ago, didn’t he?

    “Simī hí fú?” -Who are you then?

    “Dē Morfin, au?”-I’m Morfin, ain’t I?

    “Tuva Marvolī ?”-Marvolo’s son?

    “Sasōl, ebei? Shēsin Muggle saum hwinæ. Tōr shēsin Muggle harisa.”-“’Course I am, then… I thought you was that Muggle. You look mighty like that Muggle.”

    “Hē Muggle?”-What Muggle?

    “Shēsin takím arsiæ hinneis, shēsin Muggle takēm zi aotī heis pi kæs. Me fua harisa. Riddle. E na kalpa fis, au? Kalpava dēgo, na orilæ. Attas, o.”-“That Muggle what my sister took a fancy to, that Muggle what lives in the big house over the way. You look right like him. Riddle. But he’s older now, i’n ’e? He’s older’n you, now I think on it… He come back, see.”

    “Riddle attanas?”-Riddle came back?

    “Ar, ī stanas, chāsa, spak kastú! Orrē eisnais, ēhī, pabr ītnais! Hút for hívulo, i? Hút for Slǐstrikti hívulo? Orrē aswafanais, paifā! Dy hí fú, bes lālú, mespārú tso hāsla? Pēlos, au, pēlos…”-“Ar, he left her, and serve her right, marrying filth! Robbed us, mind, before she ran off! Where’s the locket, eh, where’s Slytherin’s locket? Dishonoured us, she did, that little slut! And who’re you, coming here and asking questions about all that? It’s over, innit… it’s over…”
