Grineer text originally started out as simple bar code, and the ultimate goal was to create a written language that could be read easily whether compacted into a small space or plastered on an entire wall. Unlike the Corpus or Tenno alphabet that needs room to flourish, Grineer text can be fit into just about any location without a problem.

—WARFRAME blog post on creation of the language[1]

The Grineer speak and write in English, however they use their own unique set of barcode letters with dot-matrix-styled 'cuts' made along its edges (left for letters, right for numbers), to various depths. A dot present under each letter's bottom-right corner helps to determine the correct orientation and makes it easy to tell if the text has been flipped or rotated.

In many cases, the developers did not intend for this language to be translated and read by players. Therefore, many cases of text longer than a few words (such as the readouts on monitors) tend to be random letters strung together and occasionally flipped or rotated. Since the dot-marks are supposed to be on the bottom-right, it is easy to tell when this has been done.

Speech[edit | edit source]

Much like the Corpus Language, Grineer is based on a substitution of letters and letter clusters, generated by feeding English text through a simple program.[2][3] The substitutions used have evolved over time, leading to inconsistency in the spoken Grineer language which is exacerbated by the accents of various Grineer units. A list of substitutions common to most Grineer/Quotes has been determined based on known dialog. Due to the relatively small number of references and the variability of Grineer accents, this list may not be comprehensive.

English Grineer Example/Notes
B K Sukjekkt ("subject")
BA RA Raf ("back")
BO BRO Brogrer ("bored")
C K, KK Onke ("once")
CK F Kref ("check")
CL GR Grear ("clear")
D R Spotter ("spotted")
H R Rey ("hey")
I U, HU Hu'm ("I'm")
L D Dof ("lock")
Applied only if L is not preceeded by a consonant
LL S Khus ("kill")
O K Fkr ("for")
Outdated substitution; more recent dialogue do not use this
P G Gregort ("report")
Applied only if P is not flanked by any consonants
R-, -R- GR Regre ("here")
Applied only if R is not flanked by any consonants
ST TR Retrroy ("destroy")
TH KL Klem ("them")
This substitution is responsible for the Clem meme.
W R Rusr ("wish")
WH GR Grat ("what")

These substitutions are the most heavily used, but have not always been employed, and may change again in the future. Some notable dialog that does not follow these rules includes the initial cutscene of Vor's Prize, which among other irregularities features a substitution seen nowhere else: O → K. The Kavor word "sikkhat" is a recent example of a word of unknown derivation that may indicate a rule shift. Known examples of translated text can be found on the Grineer, Captain Vor, General Sargas Ruk, Kuva Guardian, and the Regulator quotes page.

A small number of words are irregular or have special substitution rules: most notably "and", ("na"), "my" ("tu"), and "you" ("gar"). Expletives except for "ramn" ("damn") appear to not follow substitution rules, or are de novo words ("ghutre" "rapatok", "gretesk"). Numbers used in the Orbiter's Radio Scanner audio are also partially irregular and possibly unique to those clips.

Numbers[edit | edit source]

First Appearance[edit | edit source]

Grineer Numbers


Quick flash of a message at 0:0:27

A video released on July 3, 2013 for the Informant Event featured more Grineer text, including the first uses of numbers for the language. A flash before the timer countdown contained the message:



The timer displayed in the background begins at 48:00:00 and begins counting down, ending at 47:59:51 when the view changes. As a result, the symbols for numbers were determined by the community.

It can be seen that the numbers have indentations on the right sides of the blocks, unlike the letters which have indentations on the left sides. The indentations on the numbers progressively rise as the numbers increase. Even numbers have shallower indentations, while odd numbers have deeper ones.

Pronunciation[edit | edit source]

The official pronunciation of numbers are as follows[4]:

  • One (1) = Uk
  • Two (2) = Tok
  • Three (3) = Chee
  • Four (4) = Forr
  • Five (5) = Fhuve
  • Six (6) = Shux
  • Seven (7) = Sevenk
  • Eight (8) = Ehught
  • Nine (9) = Nhune

Writing[edit | edit source]

All writing in the Grineer alphabet is written in either correct American English (with exceptions) or phonetically in the English language, with some substitutions due to missing characters:

  • "X" is converted to Grineer K.svgGrineer S.svg (KS).
  • "Q" is converted to Grineer K.svgGrineer W.svg (KW).

Examples[edit | edit source]

  • Queen is written as Grineer K.svgGrineer W.svgGrineer E.svgGrineer E.svgGrineer N.svg ("Kween").
  • Conquer is wrrten as Grineer C.svgGrineer O.svgGrineer N.svgGrineer K.svgGrineer W.svgGrineer U.svgGrineer E.svgGrineer R.svg ("Conkwuer").

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The audio language for the Grineer was added in Update 10.
  • It would seem some of the speeches are a similar blend with the languages on Earth before it was converted to Grineer such as English, German, and French. This is reasonable as the idea that the Grineer used to be humans before their repeated industrial cloning made them as they are.
  • The Grineer Alphabet abstains from the letter use of "Q" and "X". They are substituted using "KW" and "KS" respectively.[1]
  • The Grineer language is made by running English words and sentences through a script before being voiced.[10] Some of them, on the other hand, seemed to be garbled.
  • There is evidence to suggest that certain Grineer may have differing accents from other members of their faction. For example, in "The Call" trailer, the unnamed Grineer leader of the excavation puts no emphasis on the "H" in "moh'ne" when saying "Huh'ris moh'ne!" ("He's mine!"). Vor, however, is heard doing so later in the trailer.
  • On the small white machine/device, a text is found on the left side, vertically written: "KO, SYSTEM WIDE"
  • Sometimes, the words "is duty" (Grineer I.svgGrineer S.svg   Grineer D.svgGrineer U.svgGrineer T.svgGrineer Y.svg), can be found with the Grineer symbol in front of it, clearly saying: "GRINEER IS DUTY".
  • Generally, the larger writings have a meaning, as where smaller texts usually do not.
  • The Grineer Explosive Barrels carry the following message: "DEATH IS REAL" (Grineer D.svgGrineer E.svgGrineer A.svgGrineer T.svgGrineer H.svg   Grineer I.svgGrineer S.svg   Grineer R.svgGrineer E.svgGrineer A.svgGrineer L.svg), a crude indicator of the barrel's volatile contents.
  • The phrase "WANT TO KNOW MORE?" is a reference to the movie Starship Troopers. In it, a series of short propaganda videos promoting the Federation's war on the Arachnids are played, all ending in the phrase "Would you like to know more?"
