Spoken language is an event occurring in a few Nitrome games where a character or the game will verbally speak English, as opposed to written English. This type of communication can be heard by the player, instead of read, although in many cases spoken language will be accompanied by written text of what is said.

Spoken language is very rare in Nitrome games, usually appearing in "special" Nitrome games, such as Test Subject Complete or Nitrome Must Die. It should be noted that spoken language is different than the more common grunts and groans, as, although these are spoken, they do not convey any words.

Most Nitrome games, when containing spoken language, usually use a male voice and all language is English, with the exception of Off The Rails which contains Spanish words, and Rainbogeddon and Test Subject Complete, which have language spoken with a female voice.
