Part of a phrase in HP Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos. Translates roughly to, "dreams," "sleeps," or "waits."

The phrase - Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn - translates to, "In his house at R'lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming."

It is often shortened to, "Cthulhu fhtagn," which loosely translates to, "Cthulhu waits," or "Cthulhu dreams."
"Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn."
