Introduction

One of the charms of the Panzer Dragoon series is the unique languge spoken by the inhabitants of it’s world. Instead of using random babble or made up words, Team
Andromeda went beyond the call of duty and created their own romance language. This page is a collection of words and their closest english counterparts found and translated by the incredible fans of the series the world over.

Thing you must remember:

  • The published contents have been based on individual investigation. It is in no way official.

But it’s probably as close as you’re gonna get.

  • Some words are based on the English release of the games, and the true meaning could have been lost when it was localized for America. I’ve stuck to the Japanese translation for the majority of the words.

  • The “Rosetta Stone” of this langauge is the ending song to Panzer Dragoon Saga, “Sona mi areru ec sancitu”, where the lyrics were listed in both “Panzerese” and Japanese. Using this, along with the assumed Latin ancestor, we were able to cross-reference the words to give you a more accurate translation.

  • Land R have the same sound in Japanese, so I picked which letter fit the word best. Feel free to interchange these to your liking. Although anything that has an official spelling from the lyrics is listed, and should be kept the way it is. (Ex. Areru is not Alell, but Frota could be Flota.)

Panzer Dragoon Language Analysis 2000. 10.25

Panzerese is most likely based on ancient Greek.

Most people believe Panerese is a language that was made the on the basis of ancient greek.
Although looking at the dictionary, you’ll find that many of the words closely match Latin.
Ancient Greek greatly influenced the Latin language, and the spelling and meaning of words
are the same in many cases. It’s very likely that Panzerese uses a combination of both, just
like English does.

Pronunciation Info

Assuming that you can read this, you can speak english! It’s a lot easier for us to pronounce
Panzerese than our fellow japanese counterparts can. Although since japanese actors did read
the roles in the videogames, the language has a hint of japanese to it. Upon seeing the
opening movie to the first game, the speech reminded me of German a lot, also. So having
prior experience in German, Japanese, and especially Latin or Greek will help you here.
Listening to Sona mi areru ec sancitu can’t hurt you either. Any information of pronouncing
Latin or Greek would help greatly though. I’d like to hear from you. The Pronunciation
collumn is in a state of flux, and I will add a guide similar to the ones found in modern dictionaries on the next major update.

Using Verbs and Nouns

This confuzes the hell out of me right now. But let’s try and work on a line from the song.

Sona areru ec paldeel? - Art thou the bringer of ruin?

Sona appears to be “Then”, but I’m still unsure about this. Areru is messenger, ec denotes a question, and paldeel means to ruin.
So we have: “Then messenger ? ruin”

Panzer Language Tidbit

1.Translation Soon

2.The “Aude” puzzle

This appears twice in the AZEL Opening. “Aude gescal de.” = I don’t want to die.“Aude
gescal” = have not killed. This makes the verb negative in the future tense. So “Leekyu femi
aude sana” should mean “The old woman hasn’t sang yet.”

3.When you attach “de” to the verb…

When you attach “De” to the beginning of the verb, it becomes the opposite. “Pertina” =
Concerns "Depertina” = Does not concern, “Geskell” to kill, “Degeskell” = to not kill.

4. “ieh”, “es”, “to”, "eng"

Most likely some type of preposition or conjunction.

5.Sentence structure?

“Faniba leekyua naus den Lagi.” (Chase the ancient ship, but not Lagi) {Literally “Chase
ancient ship not Lagi”}
So the sentence structure is Verb + (A) + den + (B) = “It does (A) but not (B)”
