Dragonese is punctuated by shrill shrieks and popping noises and sounds MOST extraordinary when spoken by a human.
  How to Train Your Dragon  

Dragonese is the language that the dragons speak in the books. Hiccup tries to train Toothless by speaking to him in Dragonese, but it doesn't really work any better than yelling at him.

History

No Viking has ever even tried to speak Dragonese except for Hiccup the First, Hiccup the Second, and Hiccup the Third, as well as, though later, Alvin the Treacherous. The Druid Guardian and the Northern Wanderers, however, can speak Dragonese.

As with other languages, Dragonese can have various dialects. One such mentioned in the Books serveral times is an Ancient form of it spoken by dragons who have been isolated for a long time. The first dragon mentioned as speaking with an ancient dialect was the Monstrous Strangulator that Grimbeard the Ghastly left trpped and isolated to guard his treasure for at least 100 years.

In the main series book How to Speak Dragonese, Hiccup makes a notebook titled How to Speak Dragonese. It is stolen by Alvin, who uses it to subjugate Dragonkind.
