Default Tau language/dictionary

I am planning to enter the Black Library's latest short story competition but would like to use the appropriate Tau language for the various things.

The story will involve the Tyranids so I was hoping for at least a name to refer to the nids and possiblyfor some of their individual sub-species. I feel that it will be better to refer to them by their Tau names rather than the Imperial names.

If any body could also direct me to other sources for Tau language and words that would be appreciated.

Though as far as names go I'm good. Came up with a great way of creating names with the help of a thesaurus.

Thanks in adavance for any help.

The tau word for tyranid is "Y'he" I believe. Also, check the stickies, I believe there is a link to the Tau Lexicon there.

Thanks for the help, I found a good amount of info in the stickies (should have had a better look at them first, would have saved me some time!).

This seems to be the best site for Tau Language;

Don't forget to check out the lexicon and a-z on the main page here.
