Chi'chtrf was the nezumi term to designate their own language. After the Terrible Day the nezumi had scattered and developed different languages on each Nezumi tribe. Titchtch'tch, the first Rememberer, set out the unified language. [1]

Rokugani Research Edit

The Crane Clan reasearched the nezumi language. The Nezumi augmented their speech with "clicks" and "squeaks." When writing, "clicks" were indicated by an apostrophe (') and "squeaks" were shown with a dash (-). Repeating an action word indicated performing the action. Many words in the Nezumi language were simply simple words put together to mean something greater. There were very few synonyms in the Nezumi language. The Ratlings only had numbers from zero to ten, but from those, they could count infinitely. [2]
