"Gassirraaaajaalrimri..."

In a word, huh? What exactly is Aurax on about with this cryptic statement? If anything. As far as I can tell, here are my theories:

A) Something cool and metal to say without any real meaning behind it.

B) A special kind of hat Aurax likes to wear that gives him the confidence to face the day, that unfortunately the DunSult hid and won't tell him wear it is.

C) Aurax has gas.

D) Something different.

Do you have a page reference? I imagine it was just his blubbering (or pretend blubbering).

374, when Kellhus is talking to Mekeritrig about resisting the Goad. I assume blubbering too, but Bakker rarely makes up a word without knowing what it means.

Gassirraaaajaalrimri

Take out all the duplicate letters:
Gasirajalrimri

Now reverse it:
Irmirlajarisag

That should clear it up.
No whistling on the slog!

Yes, yes. I'm surprised everyone didn't immediately understand it.

I'm guessing it's just blubbering in his native tongue.

As an aside, I can't stand when he uses duplicate letters, in any context, it just doesn't seem to fit. I wish they were just written normally and left open to interpretation.

If I'm being told he screamed "Flee"' I don't need to see "Fleeeeee".

But yeah, Aurax is a lil bitch.

It is Inchoroin (?) for Kellhus is clearly OP and we are all doomed, a god of the Tusk walks with him...

I have no idea, myself - but I think Khaine may be on to it - some sort of exasperation/alarm. I think that's how I took it when I read it, but my memory of the text is getting stale.
It's me, Dave, open up, I've got the stuff

Chances are good that the unintelligible noises are just unintelligible noises.
I am a warrior of ages, Anasurimbor. . . ages. I have dipped my nimil in a thousand hearts. I have ridden both against and for the No-God in the great wars that authored this wilderness. I have scaled the ramparts of great Golgotterath, watched the hearts of High Kings break for fury. -Cet'ingira

That or its a hidden cipher for the entire series and unlocking it will unlock the other mysteries of the series.

Quick, lets hunt down every unintelligible string of letters and see if we can't find a hidden code!

Is this going to be the TSA version of that crazy "corn code" ASOIAF theory? ;)
