Genmotty's Xenolexicon is a compilation of a bunch of Tau words and their english translations.

If you're looking for it, why don't you try searching for it?

Doombringer's Amazing Search Tool Tutorial!

Step 1

Click the 'Search' button.

Step 2

Type 'Xenolexicon' in the "Search For:" box.

Step 3

Type 'Genmotty' into the "by user:" box.

Step 4

Press Enter, or click 'Search'.

Step 5

Click the 'The Definitive Tau Xenolexicon' hyperlink.

Provided you performed Steps 1-4 correctly, it should be the fourth entry down.

---

Now was that so hard?

Cheers DB. Just to let you know angrySCORCH62 that some of the terms are not quite accurate. So read the entire thread, as I believed that Fio'tak or Kles'tak (one of the two) was something other than what it meant. Hence please read the entire thread. Also note they are only rough translations of a fictional language, hence it is only a rough idea.

While we actually have a thread devoted to your Lexicon, Genmotty, when will you find the time to update it?

I'm dying to have a one-stop shop for all things Tau-language-related, including the Fire Warrior terms and perhaps even the names for the weapons we came up with oh so long ago.

Perhaps you can simply put the 'non-canonical' terms (like Wargamer's 'to'tau'va' or the weapons) in blue font or italics?

I think the moral of the story here is to use the search function, for it is thy friend

Just in case you can't find it, here is a link

I also reckon questions asking Genmotty about the xenolexicon are best either PMed to him, or posted in the thread itself, depending on the content of the question (ie. don't go bumping the whole thing just to ask "When will you be adding more?").
