Dominionese script

Dominionese script.

Dominionese was the native language of the Dominion, spoken by the Vorta.

An example of Dominionese, from Federation-Dominion negotiations held aboard Deep Space 9 in 2374, was recorded and analyzed by a group of Augments:

"Eee-ja maa'na hoo'va, baa'li jen'ku'rada sen'to." - Listenfile info
"On the balance, we give up more than you."

Here, according to Jack, Weyoun used a passive voice transitive, which indicated that he was making a request, not a statement as the phrase appeared in English. In this case, the universal translator failed to pick up this particular nuance. (DS9: "Statistical Probabilities")

Presumably, the Founders, while in humanoid form, and the Jem'Hadar also spoke Dominionese.
