This dictionary and lexique list some terms used in Wakandan languages, or terms and expressions in English or other languages but used by the Wakandans, or already translated in English or other languages.

Some terms may be used by Wakandans without being translated. They will be listed anyway with a context helping to understand their meaning, until they will be developed.

It is also possible that some of the terms are actually Hausa or Yoruba, the two other major languages of Wakanda,[1] or from another language or dialect, such as Zulu and Rwandan.[2]

The Wakandans of Earth-199999 speak Xhosa.[3]
