    Seems to me that the whole idea was kind of dropped. They invented syllables and had Weaving and others record some Cybertronian lines that ended up not really being used for the most part, and instead they put muddling effects on the 'Cons lines in English. You hear some from Megatron when he gets to the city, a lot from Frenzy, but otherwise they seem to have muddled and/or cut out most of it.

    Plus as for the Autobots, I think they wanted to appear as earth-friendly as possible.

    I think Autobots like to acclimate to their new surroundings in most respects, it gives them more common ground with the scared lil meatba-er....humans. Decepticons only take earth forms as a practicality, the rest is pointless pandering to the human condition.

    Totally IMO though.

    Does anybody know how to say anything in Cybertronian? I remember from reading the book that the Transformers language was too fast for Human brains to process, and our vocal cords most certainly couldn't produce the right sounds, and that some "sounds" in their language could not be heard by the Human ear. Whether or not a human could use some sort of electronic device to actually assist them in speaking the language I don't know, but then it comes down to the language being too fast for our brains to process. Just me thinking and rambling here, lol.

    the language consists of what we would call sonic vibrations, for us we can write it but we can't speak it.

    Awesome symbols. They look like they'd sure be hard to learn, I wouldn't even begin to know HOW to write something like these symbols. Since Humans could learn to write (but not speak) I'd give it a shot, might be fun, and I could exercise the hamster running in that wheel in my head, lol.

    I tried to write them in Sho (Japanese calligraphy) style. ;-)

    I don't know exactly what it means, Megatron has these symbols etched on his jawbone (and another one on the cheekbone).
    I guess it's a thing like ID or rank marking. But who knows, it could be just a "Caution/Do not step" sign..

    They seem like a combination of characters from many different languages. I can't interpret any of them but a few parts of each look familiar. It's those that look familiar that look a little out of place.

    Anyone have an R2 droid to help? I doubt C-3PO would work, even Prime would want to scrap 3PO.

    Hmmm... a Cybertronian Language. Still that would be cool. Rank up there with the Klingon language.
    Shall we Cybertronian Geeks get started?

    Reminds me of the alien language on the tripods in War of the Worlds. I always thought it meant "How's my driving? Call 1-800-GO-TRIPOD"
