OtherAll vowels are whistled with the superscript number indicating the octave. Uyakka language happens in five octaves, though some vowels at higher and lower octaves occur colloquially, as the race has an eight-octave vocal range. Using higher octaves out of context is considered socially inappropriate, similar to screaming in a church.
