Dominionese script

Dominionese script.

Dominionese is the native language of the Dominion. It has been spoken by the Vorta, and presumably also the Founders (while in humanoid form) and the Jem'Hadar.

The following is an example of Dominionese, from the Federation-Dominion negotiations held aboard Deep Space 9 in 2374:

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

Here, 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")
