I think the correct term for your language is "stinkonics" or as the ancients refer to it, the language of the roach. It's etymologically ambiguous in that even the simplest phrase can be translated to either "Good morning, my friend" or "road kill, with onions." To a member of your species, it is synonymous, but we tend not to use it in day-to-day conversation.

Factoid: Stinkonics was briefly considered in the 1930's as a coded language for communications in the Swiss navy, but the submarines kept ending up in the Alps. It's also what led to the Swiss taking the gold medal for downhill U-boat in the 1936 Olympics, which was the last year for that event due to WWII.
