In Game of Thrones, Can white walkers speak? I haven't read the books but don't see evidence to the affirmative in the TV series.

If not, I'm interested in any communication theories.

Best Answer

YES - They can speak.

For the TV series, a language was invented called Skroth.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly during Season 2, Executive Producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss stated that "Skroth" is indeed the official name of the language used by the White Walkers. According to the interview, the inhuman (and unpronounceable) sounds of Skroth, "ice-cracking chatter", were created by Sound Designer Peter Brown.

The language they speak in the books is not named:

The novel A Song of Ice and Fire clearly states that "the Others" ("White Walkers" in the TV series) speak a language with the voice "like the cracking of ice on a winter lake", but the name of the language is not given.

The DifferenceWights are a product of White Walkers, and they're essentially undead pawns that the White Walkers use to fight their battles.

In the show, the White Walkers are led by a character named the Night King. He is also a White Walker, just a special kind, given he was the first one ever made.
