Reminds me of when my ex would play that online Star Wars game: I'd
oarticularly observe the Huttese spoken.
Recently, I watched Return of the Jedi and noticed when Jabba would use
names when addressing (for example) Luke or Han and sub-titles would
translate them as pronouns. (e.g Jedi = you when addressing Luke). Seems as
though the game my ex played stayed true to that.
I should research Huttese more, but is it just me or does that language
lack the pronoun 'you' (pretty certain it applies to he/she, as well)?
Sorry, just an observation...
