Minionese, the language of Minions! Also called Banana Language by some fans, the gibberish that the hysterical yellow Minions from the Despicable Me movies (and their own spin-off movie) is actually a bunch of words taken from other languages, as well as some onomatopoeia (words that sound like what they mean), or just syllables that sound silly together.

“Their language sounds silly, but when you believe that they’re actually communicating, that’s what makes it funnier. What’s great about the Minion language, while it is gibberish, it sounds real because Pierre puts in words from many languages and does the lion’s share of the Minion recordings. There are a lot of food references. For example, ‘poulet tiki masala’ is French for the Indian chicken dish,” he said.

Now, brush up on your language skills and get ready to dive into the Banana zone. Here are some words to get you started speaking like a Minion in no time!
