Every Universe has its own set of the idioms, curses and other expressions. I just thought it could be handy to start a collection of the different SW ways to say different things.

Let me start:

- Curses
As far as I can see, in SW Universe they use the word "sith" the way we use "hell" or "devil"... or sometimes "shit". Laughing Thus we get such expressions as:
Sith!
What the sith?
Sith's blood!
sith's spawn

- and so on.

- Expressions
Off one's repulsors = totally nuts (picked from Hard Contact)
Mind like a stunned mynock/brain-dead Weequay = hopless moron (first from KOTOR II, second from Triple Zero)

I'll post more when I find or remember more. =)

I enjoy the replacements of "God" with "Force" and if you're a Mando, "Manda."

Thank the Force!
May the Force be with you. (Equivalent of "God speed.")

etc, etc.

And I still use "hell" in my SW curse words because of Han Solo in Empire Strikes back.
"Your Taun-Taun will freeze out there!"
"Then I'll see you in HELL!"

One of my favorite scenes in the books was Komr'k discussing foreign insults. Laughing

Schutta, a Rylothian animal that serves as a common insults among Twi'leks. Equelent to Bitch.

Because I'm lazy...

Slang According to Wookieepedia

There are some pretty good ones in there. I ought to re-read it and pick out my favorites some day. I tend to use Mando curses and kriffing/barve/fierfek too much, among others. Razz

Oh, it's worth reading all right! Didn't know they actually had it in Wookipedia.
