Full Minions Language Dictionary Which Helps You Understand Minions


Love the yellow adorable creatures? Here is the minion language dictionary which helps you understand the yellow devils.

Klingon, Elvish, Dothraki and Esperanto were created by expert linguists and these all are actually made up language not some collection of jibberish words. Just like real languages, they developed and evolved over years of use by fans and language enthusiasts. Now, for a quite sometime Minionese: The language of the minions is starting to build up in vocabulary as well as in popularity.

The language of the yellow adorable creatures is also called the Banana Language by some fans, the gibberish that the crazy yellow Minions from the Despicable Me movies is actually a bunch of words taken from other languages, as well as some onomatopoeia (words that sound like what they mean), or just syllables that sound goofy together.

Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, directors of the Minions movies explained, they used their creative license to pick up exotic sounding words from all over the world to create the Minions language and it works quite well together, people all over the world helped us identified many words. Creators said in an interview that they imagined the Minions as being able to work for evil villains all over the world, so that gives them global appeal and global language.

“We sort of established that these guys have been around, like, forever, serving masters all over the world and it gave us some sort of license to pick words here and there … Funny words, like in the Japanese language, and the Korean language, Chinese, Italian—and mix everything up to make this very special language that they have,” they said in an interview.

Chris Renaud, who co-directed Despicable Me, the film where the Minions first appeared, said that Coffin recorded the majority of the Minion words and it’s due to his creative imagination he used various foreign words that the language sounds humorous and genuine.

“Their language sounds silly, but when you think that they’re actually communicating, that’s what makes it entertaining. What’s brilliant about the Minion language is that it is indeed gibberish but it sounds original because Pierre puts in words from various languages and does the huge share of the Minion recordings himself. There are a lot of food references in the language. For example, ‘poulet tiki masala’ is French for the Indian chicken dish,” he said.
