Hedgerow is a lingua franca adopted by rabbits when speaking to other animals. However, in both examples given in the book (i.e. the mouse and Kehaar the gull) the conversation reverts to Lapine once initial contact has been established. More specifically, the rabbits adopt formal Lapine and the other animals employ a Lapine Foreigner Talk, "a reduced code or incipient pidgin".
