Non-human amphibious languages

Has anyone else read Robert Silverberg's "The Face of the Waters"?

That's what I'm reading right now, and it's got a major non-human sapiont, the
"Gillies".  Let me quote:

"When Gillies spoke it was by squeezing their arms inward against their sides,
compressing air through deep gill-shaped slits in their chests to produce
booming organ-like tones. ... " pg 31.

You ask, "What is the most important thing?"
