The original instructions and dictionary for furby 1998

This page is for the language the Furbies speak; Furbish. If you want to look for the fake, click here.

This is the language spoken by all Furbies and Friends of Furby. Furbish takes inspiration from many languages, especially Japanese and German. The original 1998 Furby and its dictionary contained a total of 42 different furbish words. Over the years of Furby models, many new words have been invented, from Moo-Lah (Money) To Oo-Kah (Uncle).

Overview

Furbish is a mix of different sounds and simple syllables to form a basic language. Although Furbish may seem primitive and silly at first, it combines many aspects of real languages from around the world. An example would be the furbish phrase "Doo?". Instead of putting a question mark "?" at the end of a sentence, "Doo?" is used.

(Example; Furbish: "Doo-dah oo--nye may-may kah doo?" English (literal): Do you love me?".)

This is very similar to the Japanese word "Desu Ka?" Which is used in place of a question mark. The Furby 2.0 (2012) and Furby Boom both start to learn English the more you use/interact with them.

However, contrary to popular belief a Furby cannot learn to speak an English word just by exposing itself to them. (A Furby won't start to say the word "pineapple" just because you repeat it to them.) It's English is pre-programmed into the software and will improve overtime the more you interact with it.
