The Kreetassan language was the spoken language of the Kreetassans. It was relatively very difficult to master, as sometimes one word could have a dozen different meanings. In fact, noted communications officer Hoshi Sato struggled to learn Kreetassan and once commented that it had the most subtle contextual variations she had ever seen in any language.

During ritual sectioning of an alvera tree, the person who was performing the splicing of the tree had to repeatedly state the Kreetassan phrase, "Deelos takaa, seely estos oor-rah. Tenvla nikot pranab boko oor-tah." (ENT: "A Night in Sickbay")
- Roughly, "Open the doors"
- A verb meaning both "mate" and "eat," depending on phonetic emphasis; the former was conveyed by emphasizing the first syllable, thus pronouncing the word "HWA-jat". (ENT: "Vox Sola")
