    There is no official book that I know of but there are quite a few websites with Goa'uld-English Dictionaries.
    Bit of self-promotion here

    I don't think it's been fully explained so you only get small phrases and various words that have been translated. Shame really.....be pretty cool to speak in an alien language. Though you would look like a bit of a weirdo if went down the street speaking Goa'uld.....

    lol!
    I'd love to be able to speak goa'uld or Ancient(if I could learn Latin that wouold be close enough) but sadly we only know various words and phrases in goa'uld not really enough to speak it properly

    You never know though, they have been bringing out alot of new stargate books recently so maybe they will bring out a full goa'uld one soon. *crosses fingers*

    I don't think any self-respecting college is going to accept Klingon and Goa'uld as your two languages

    With all due respect, you can get into several university's around here by having a recognised qualification in Elvish, or any other Tolkein language... sad, but true

    Just out of curisosity, does anyone here have any spasms where they use a Goa'uld or Ancient (or other stargate language) term?

    For example:
    I've been known to yell 'Kree' at my locker when it jams.

    And last Thursday, my American Cultures teacher asked this kid behind me where his homework was, and he replied "Proklarush Taonas".

    Anybody have any incidents like these?
    Dark Helmet: So, Lone Starr, now you see that evil will always triumph because good is dumb.
    Dark Helmet: No, it's not what you think. It's much, much worse!

    Col. Sandurz: Prepare for light speed.
    Dark Helmet: No, no, light speed is too slow.
    Col. Sandurz: Light speed too slow?
    Dark Helmet: Yes, we'll have to go right to...Ludicrous speed!
    Col. Sandurz:Ludicrous speed! Sir, we've never gone that fast before. I don't think the ship can take it.
    Dark Helmet: What's the matter, Colonel Sandurz...CHICKEN?!

    Yup, I taught my dog "kree" instead of "heal"... I have Goa'uld torrets...

    ... I also told my girlfriend "Paltiem shree talma" (our love does not end in death) less than an hour ago

    I've been known to talk Klingon, several Elvish languages, Latin, Old English and Ancient Egyptian sometimes...and I don't think I'm weird. Although my students do...
    I'm sometimes worried that I know more dead than living languages (see above)

    I'm teaching a class on English language history at the moment, and confused everyone when I started making references to Ancient Egyptian.

    Nothing wrong with any of those languages... Just need to teach your kids "kree" and you'll be fine ^_^

    For Goa'uld translations, there are really quite a few places to look...
    Try the Lexicon at www.rdanderson.com
    or
    Phrasebook
    or
    dictionary

    This question seems to pop up roughly every 2 or 3 weeks, in fact I started a similar thread!

    As far as I can find, there is no definitive translation, but the links posted on this thread give good pointers.

    Well, "kree" in itself probably doesn't need a translation anyway

    Speaking of teaching alien languages, did anyone hear about the couple who had their son taken away because apparently, when the child went to school, they knew next to nothing in the english language, but was able to fluently speak Klingon?
