Lingua-technis or Techna-Lingua is a language of the Cant Mechanicus. It is a binary language consisting of a burst of static emitted through the bionic implants of members of the Mechanicum which cannot be understood by unaugmented humans.[1] It has been optimised for quick communication of technical data and servitor commands, and is generally full of internal self-references and allusions to secret knowledge only known by members of the Mechanicum.[2]

It it rarely used outside of the Mechanicum, although elements of it can be found integrated into the Low Gothic languages of highly industrialised or technologically oriented cultures.[2]
