== Overview ==
{{Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Beginner Spoiler}}
 
The ability to speak Parseltongue is usually inborn; a wizard is born being able to speak Parseltongue, and those who are not born with the ability cannot normally learn the language (although, [http://the-leaky-cauldron.org/2007/7/30/j-k-rowling-web-chat-transcript according to the author], [[Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Characters/Albus Dumbledore|Dumbledore]] may have learned to understand it, and in [[Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Books/Deathly Hallows/Chapter 31|''Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows]], [[Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Characters/Ron Weasley|Ron]] has learned one word of it, though it is questionable whether he knows what it means). To date, the ability to speak Parseltongue has been almost entirely associated with those who can show direct descent from [[Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Characters/Salazar Slytherin|Salazar Slytherin]].
 
[[Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Characters/Harry Potter|Harry]], it turns out, can speak Parseltongue, though he was apparently not born with that ability. In [[Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Books/Chamber of Secrets|''Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets'']], Professor Dumbledore suggests that when [[Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Characters/Lord Voldemort|Lord Voldemort]], who is Slytherin's last descendant, tried to [[Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Magic/Avada Kedavra|kill Harry]], some of Voldemort's powers were transferred to him; one of those was Parseltongue.
== Questions ==
 
# In ''Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince'', [[Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Characters/Morfin Gaunt|Morfin Gaunt]] apparently refuses (or is unable) to speak anything except Parseltongue. How is Dumbledore, who is not a ParseltongueParselmouth, able to understand what happens in the [[Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Magic/Pensieve|Pensieve]] memory where Morfin is talking to [[Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Characters/Tom Marvolo Riddle|Tom Riddle]]?
 
== Greater Picture ==
 
We learn in [[Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Books/Deathly Hallows/Chapter 35|''Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows'']] that Harry's ability to speak Parseltongue is actually related to the soul shard that [[Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Characters/Lord Voldemort|Voldemort]] lost when trying to kill Harry. That soul shard had attached itself to Harry, and was the source of this ability, plus the ability to see into Voldemort's mind. The soul shard was destroyed in [[Muggles' Guide to Harry Potter/Books/Deathly Hallows/Chapter 34|''Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows'']], and Harry's ability to speak Parseltongue went with it, according to the author.
 
The reason that Dumbledore can speak Parseltongue is never made entirely clear, but it is mentioned that he could speak some hundreds of languages, including Mermish and Gobbledegook. Having him understand Parseltongue as well would be relatively simple; apparently the ease of learning a language increases with the number of languages learned, even for Muggles.
