From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

Grievish, from what modern etymologists know, resulted from a particularly mind-bogglingly stupid typo by Grievous797 during a caffeine haze. While typing "Hello thar" to the #Halopedia IRC channel, he was accidentally a key over. Instead of typing "Hello thar", he typed "Pjao tjar". The word stuck as a formal greeting to those associated with Grievous, and modern day Grievish was born.
