: Removed the following because it is simply not the case:
They actually spoke in rather straightforward Arnold-style German/Austrian accents: "Ve vant to pahmp YOU ahp!"
BT The P
: I think whomever put them in was responding to the whole "Girly-man" thing. But I agree, they don't belong in. On the other hand, the "Tonto, Tarzan and Frankenstein" sketches...
: <nod> Oh yeah, definitely in. I think the comment about Hulkspeak being influenced by Arnold needs to go, though. Hulk talk like baby long before Austrian girly-man... <grin>
: (a minute later) ....the hell?
What on this page triggers the appearance of two
drug testing ads?
: HULK NO DO DRUGS! PUNY HUMANS JEALOUS OF HULK POWER! HULK SMASH!
: After looking at the quote at the top of the entry for the last couple weeks, I finally decided to do something about it. "Yon sapling" is not
classic Hulkspeak by any measure.
: As long as we're fooling with it, I like Hulkspeak
for a title a little more... // a little later. I'm going to do it. We can always change it back if it bugs somebody.
: Actually, I'm not sure if the Shampoo reference belongs here. She wasn't dumb, just obsessive and hidebound by her tribal laws; the odd speech pattern was supposed to represent the fact that she hadn't bothered (or had the chance) to learn to speak Japanese properly.
: Nothing in the entry says the speaker is necessarily dumb — "more brawn than brain" doesn't always have to mean that the brain is deficient. And Shampoo certainly has the "Strongest one there is! Smash!" aspect down pat — "Obstacles is for killing", anyone?
: Randomly, I've heard that, in the Chinese dub (not sure if that's Mandarin, Cantonese, or what), she doesn't have that speech impediment.
: That is correct — she has whatever the stereotyped Chinese-speaking-Japanese accent is. But she also has a problem with overusing
pronouns (which are often implied rather than explicit in Japanese) which gives her speech a "baby-talk" quality. When her dialogue was translated, the decision was made to duplicate the sense of her speech patterns rather than its literal structure.
: Bolted Beast, as he only conceivably belongs here as a subversion, and is perfectly covered by Genius Bruiser
: "Bolted Beast" would be an excellent name for a metal album. Or a drink.
: Would the BFG count as Hulkspeak?
: The Hulk Dialect article was still hanging around. Now zapped.
: Probably not worth mentioning in the actual article, but the "tech specs" for Grimlock (from the toy packaging) actually do list him with an above-average intelligence (7 out of 10), but with a nasty, aggressive disposition. The "Hulk-speak" was actually Adaptation Decay
by the cartoon writers. Snarl and Swoop were also supposed to be above-average, though sligtly less intelligent (both 6/10). Only Slag (4/10) and Sludge (3/10) were supposed to actually be stupid. 
: Snipped recent addition
- Mongo only pawn...in game of life.
because we already have Mongo ruminating on his place in the scheme of things in the main text.
: Since it's already part of the Self-Demonstrating Article index, shouldn't we at least write the introduction in Hulk Speak?
That's a relic from when someone rewrote the entire article in Hulk Speak
. The wiki at large was not happy with this and it was reverted. Removing the index markup.
: Removed some natter
: Is the Las Vegas
page quote really an example of the trope? I haven't seen the movie/show/whatever it is (it redirects to Viva Las Vegas!
), but it seems like the quote refers to something distinguished, like the Royal "We"
