Hoshi Sato was able to learn Menk without much trouble.
- Tik Tik : "Thank you"
- Ra'sata : "Food"
- Valakii : "(the) Valakians"
e'satta prah ku...ku Valakii. : "The Doctor is going to look inside of you."
Pah ku mano. N'da tom-ah. : "The soil here isn't good for planting."
Menk a'kata y' Valakii. : "The Valakians are good to/protect the Menk."
Larr, ku ra'sata gol dach? : "Larr, where did you get the food?"
Valakii fora t'let ra'sata kee, akem, pinj erana. : "The Valakians give us anything we need: food, clothing, medicine."
Dialogue from Valakian Hospital
Larr is one of the Menk.
Larr: "Dak mul ahna."
Hoshi: I'm sorry. Could you say that again?
Larr: "Dak mul ahna. Kal ah ku dah. Dak mul ahna. Kal ah ku dah."
Hoshi: Captain, the U.T. can't translate his language.
Larr: "Dukat ah pra kee, Larr."
- Its probable their language is an offshoot of Valakian, or the other way around.
