The series uses many words from the Lapine language invented by Richard Adams for the book on which the series is based. "Flay," for example, means "food" and the suffix "rah" is an honorarium meaning prince or leader. The rabbits' folk hero is called "El-ahrairah," which combines the Lapine words for enemy (Elil), thousand (hrair) and prince (rah) and means "Prince Of a thousand enemies." A full glossary of these and other words can be found in the original novel.
