Chakobsa, also known as the magnetic language, was a hybrid language derived from various ancient Bhotani dialects, especially the Bhotani hunting language.
- Sayyadina "friend of God"
The word chakobsa is found in the partially reconstructed language Bhotani and means "jargon" or "shop-talk".
Behind the ScenesEdit
Chakobsa was a real-life secret language used by the medieval Chechen knights and princes. The name is derived from Bzhedukh (another Caucasian language) words šhə-k'oa-bza, meaning 'the language of hunters' . Since the fictional Chakobsa is said to be a hunting language, it is probable that Frank Herbert, who was interested in Muslim cultures, knew about this fact.
