Lapine (language)

From WikiFur, the furry encyclopedia.

Lapine is a rabbit conlang created by Richard Adams for his novel Watership Down. Adams created the language in 1972, based on his experience with the Arabic tongue, and many of the words are uniquely adapted to the lapine existence.


Silflay is a verb which means "to go above ground to eat", and tharn is an adjective which means "hypnotized with fear". The word flayrah is defined as "unusually good food", such as lettuce, and is the source of the name of online furry news magazine, Flayrah.

Lapine and furry[edit]

Many furs have taken names for themselves or characters based on the intricacy (and pseudo-furry nature) of this constructed language.
