  • It is the only language in WARFRAME to feature unique scripts for colons (:) and apostrophes (').
  • Unlike other WARFRAME languages, there is little info on proper nouns that are unique to the language as the Solari people have their names replaced by identification numbers assigned to by the Corpus. As such, nicknames or other aliases are given to the Solari based on distinguishing characteristics (e.g. Legs) or arbitrarily.
