Default Alien Conversation, for Referees and Players

I want to develop a list of conversational phrases. But I want them to be useful for a character in a game.

What conversational bits in "alien" languages are most likely to be used in a Traveller game?

Here's a negative example: "How much for that Jump Drive?"

Games are unlikely to involve asking someone the price of a jump drive in Oynprith, for example.

We've hardly ever used alien language in our games. I would if there were a reason, but usually there isn't one. I've used it once during a First Contact situation. I can't remember using it otherwise.

But supposing the crew had an Aslan player character, for instance. What phrases might that player want to know?
