Inkling is the language in which Inklings in Splatoon communicate. While individual letters, words, and the occasional phrase are often similar to real-life languages, Inkling as a whole has been confirmed by Splatoon developers to be almost entirely random.
Inkling speech may occasionally sound like real words, but for the most part it is indecipherable, high-pitched gurgling.
Some Inkling words are clearly readable as English or Japanese words.
