A scripture of the Asgard language.

Asgard is the language spoken by the Asgard. Though the language sounds completely alien to most Humans, it is believed to have influenced some of the Germanic languages on Earth, and sounds remarkably like some Norse languages mixed and distorted. Written Asgard uses a series of runes that display both words and sounds. (SG1: "The Torment of Tantalus", "The Fifth Race", "Red Sky")

Hermiod tends to mutter to himself in Asgard when frustrated. (SGA: "The Siege, Part 3", "The Intruder")


  • Hermiod's Asgard mutterings are actually English sentences backwards.
  • Hebridian text has similarities to Asgard writing.
  • The runes used to write the Asgard language resemble a mixture of the Elder Futhark used by the ancient Germanic peoples of northern Europe and the Norse of Scandinavia, and the Anglo-Saxon Futhark of England
