Gamorrese, or Gamorrean language was the native language of the Gamorrean species from planet Gamorr and colonies like Pzob.

Gamorrese was just a bunch of lexicon, mainly nouns and verbs plus a few adjectives, with a primitive syntax. Although apparently there were no declensions in Gamorrean, it was unclear if the word order provided the meaning of the sentences.

Gamorreans used Gamorrean words as their names, so that the meaning of a Gamorrean name is, more or less, some kind of threat. Other Gamorreans could be intimidated if they hear "I am Ortugg", or "I'm going to Ortugg you".

Gamorrean Runes.

Although Gamorrese did not have a sophisticated written language it did have a very basic runic alphabet which was used for record keeping, accounting and genealogy. The runic alphabet was only typically used by educated sows although a fair number of boars could read them slowly. There were known to be several variations of the runic alphabet. Since Gamorreans encountered in the galaxy were mostly males it was generally considered that the Gamorreans had no written language.

One of the Gamorrean dialects was called Vregg.

The blue and gold protocol droid N2-3PO peppered her speech with Gamorrean curses.
