Vegimals in Enemy Anenomes

IMG 1044

Vegimals in the Creature Report song.

The Vegimals are little cute and cuddly creatures, half vegetable, and half animal. All of them enjoy cooking, gardening, and helping the other Octonauts whenever they can. They speak Vegimalese, their own special language. Shellington is usually the only one who can understand what they are saying. All Vegimals have the lower halves of fish. Of all the Vegimals, however, Tunip is the only main character. They all tend to faint at shocking or bad news.

You can almost always find them in the Octopod's kitchen, where they like to bake fish biscuits and kelp cakes, or in the Octopod's garden where they can water the plants, fruits, and veggies. The Vegimals also seem to like helping Tweak fix and build things, especially Tunip, and in the Octopod Gym, where they have a Ping-Pong table, they enjoy playing a quick game whenever they want.

Appearance

Vegimals have a radish-like head that comes in different colors and a fish-like body that is colored either green or blue.

The Vegimal language

As stated earlier in the article, the Vegimals speak Vegimalese. Information relating to their method of communications have yet to be officially released, however I have collated some examples of spoken Vegimal and used context to decipher certain sounds and noises that they make. It is also likely that they do not speak an actual language (as in with syntax and grammar), and they use regular expressions in certain situations such as barks or alarm calls like dogs. However, this can be disputed as they seem to have "conversations" with one another. It can also be interpreted as a zooglot or an "animal language" with extremely simple grammar and syntax, similar to how Koko the gorilla speaks. Vegimals however, as seen in creature reports and other episodes, do have the ability to imitate and speak some spoken English, with their distinct accents, but however much prefer to stick with their native tongue.

Linguistics:

Phonology:

Vegimal phonology is fairly simple. A very common sound they produce is a "voiced alveolar trill" or /r/, colloquially known as a "Rolled 'R'" like the Spanish r in "repollo" This commonly follows a Voiceless bilibial stop or /p/ as in the English "Pole"

The following IPA symbols can be heard from the Vegimals:

Consonants:

/r/ : Rolled "r"

/p/ : same as in english "p"

/ʈ/ : Not in english, pronounced by pronouncing a 't' but curling the tongue back to touch the hard palate.

Vowels:

Some phrases:

Here are some Vegimalese phrases!

Pardon my interpretation since this is written based on what I heard in various episodes. Definitions are given based on context. Feel free to edit if you have a better interpretation.

*Characters such as ü is pronounced as ue (u + e sound).
