Do you speak Gobblefunk? I don’t or at least didn’t until recently. with all the magically happenings with The BFG I learned that Gobblefunk is the language of giants. Just like we have english, French. Chinese and other languages the giants have Gobblefunk. So I set out to learn all I could about Gobblefunk.
What is Gobblefunk
Gobblefunk is the language Roald Dahl gave the BFG to give him his unique voice. It is composed of silly words that are similar to those in the English language but are used when ordinary words just won’t do. Words like Chatbags means chatterbox or Frumkin Fry means Pumpkin Pie. Would you like to learn to speak Gobblefunk so you can talk to gaints to?

When learning the language of giants I must say my favorite words were Crickety Crackety which means sounds of bones cracking. I also liked the word Human Beans which means human beings.
