Journal Chacham's Journal: Yoda Speak 6

Well, I saw AotC, it was a pretty good movie. The yoda fighting scene was really cool. I was just wondering who was stronger, Yoda, or the Sith. I assume the Sith was stronger, which was why Yoda never took him on.

Anyway, I love Yoda-Speak. Strangely enoough, I enjoyed it even more because it reminded me of a User Friendly cartoon where Erwin was on an HP calculator, and did Yoda-Speak.

Apparently many people love it. There are quite a few web pages on the topic.

I was wondering if there was a method to his speaking. I think I got it down, but I haven't actually though of the rules would be.

      Hayodim yodim mayolam. V'halo yodim, lo yodim l'olam.
      • Heh.
        You remind me of the physics teacher who loved using a sentence similar to this. It was something like "Im einkha yode'a, tish'al"... can't remember the rest of it, but meaning that people who don't ask are dumb.

          Actually, the original is from Pirkei Avos, "Ayn Habayshun luhmad." You're quote is probably an extrapolation of that point.
  • Yoda gets his message across as quickly and efficiently as possible. The tail-end of his statement is just to fill in the extra verbs and adjectives to let you know what the provided nouns mean. He's like a hyperventilating 5 year old with asthma who's trying to tell you something.

    If Yoda were Lassie:
    Timmy in well, he fell down.

When all else fails, read the instructions.
