Mermish

Merfolk language used above water (FB, DH8); Merfolk speak human languages underwater. It sounds like horrible screeching if heard in air.
Dumbledore (GF26, HBP30) and Barty Crouch Sr. (GF7) can speak Mermish. Miranda Goshawk’s original The Book of Spells was translated into Mermish (BoS).
