Khuzdul (IPA: [kʰuzdul]) is the language of the Dwarves in J. R. R. Tolkien's Middle-earth, written with Cirth script. Not much is known of the language, as the Dwarves kept it to themselves, except for their battle-cry: Baruk Khazâd! Khazâd ai-mênu! meaning Axes of the Dwarves! The Dwarves are upon you!
