The (fictional) native language of the Romulans, who call themselves Rihannsu. They are a fictional race from Star Trek.

The details of the language were created by author Diane Duane.

Here's a link to the Wikipedia entry on the language: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rihannsu#Rihannsu_language.

In the end of The Bat Jar Conjecture, Penny asks the guys a trivia question about Tweety bird:

Penny: Tweety bird tawt he taw a what?

Both, Leonard and Sheldon think she speaks the Romulan language, which sounds very similar, and Sheldon replies "Romulan", while Leonard confidently nods.

Note: The correct answer, however, would have been "puddy tat" refering to the trademark line "I tawt I taw a puddy tat" (I thought I saw a pussy cat) of the fictional cartoon character Tweety Bird who had a speech impairment.
