Yuuzhan Vong 101:
Yuuzhan Vong appears in the New Jedi Order books. There has been controversy over whether the Yuuzhan Vong are canon or not as some fans believe them not to be part of George Lucas's vision of Star Wars (10). The name "Yuuzhan Vong" was developed at a French-Thai resturant in New York City called Vong where several Del Rey employees were eating. The Yunan region was mentioned in a list of teas on the menu that Shelly Shapiro was reading and the first draft of the name that would eventually be given to the intergalactic invaders was born of "Yunan Vong" (11).
According to Wookieepedia, Yuuzhan Vong means "Children of Yun-Yuuzhan" and is "sometimes incorrectly abbreviated to Vong, which implied that one was disowned by one's family and one's gods" (10).
The following was graciously provided to The Complete Wermo's Guide by William:
Yuuzhan Vong is the language spoken by the race of aliens called Yuuzhan Vong, who are excessivley violent and use Bioengineering for everything imaginable; from their spacecraft to their clothes, EVERYTHING is alive. They are so enveloped in this type of culture that they act in pure revulsion and hatred when come in contact with any kind of machinery, but most of all when they encounter droids because 'they attempt to immitate living creatures'. So since almost every sentient species in the galaxy is wholly dependant on machines they are referred to by the Yuuzhan Vong as 'infidels' and it is thier religious belief that they have to purge the galaxy of the infedels. The Yuuzhan Vong come littarally from outside the galaxy and have been traveling centuries to get there, believing that their gods sent them. It is in my opinion that their being from outside the galaxy is why they seem to also be completely outside the touch of the Force. The Yuuzhan Vong population is split up into castes: Warriors, Priests, Shapers (who design all of thier bioengineered devices), workers, and Shamed Ones (who are the lowliest caste and according to the Yuuzhan Vong are not worth even mentioning by a higher caste member).
Every part of their culture is centered around pain, so much actually that they purposly inflict incredible pain upon themselves, horribly mutilating thier bodies in the process, most of which come to enjoy pain as a satisfying experience. Those whose bodies don't respond well to all the self-inflicted injuries and become infected easily become Shamed ones. The highest ranking ones allways have the worst disfigurement. This pain philosophy also reflects on their language as well, as demonstrated from this excerpt from New Jedi Order Force Heretic 3 Reunion:
"Tahiri gave him the message, the last piece of the puzzle. It was shorter than Jag had expected, and utterly incomprehensible. The subtleties of the Yuuzhan Vong language, which sounded to his ears like nothing more than a series of gutteral grunts and painful throat clearings, eluded him completely."
The Yuuzhan Vong prononce Jedi like this: Jeedai. (1) Also there language appears to sound like guttural grunts.
