Default TAU DICTIONARY

Hello all members,

I find that a lot of us like making up names for our tau characters. So, I'm thinking of making a Tau dictionary, at least for names (so maybe more of name directory) but anyway, if you'd like, post your Tau names and their translations here. once I get enough names/definitions, I can compile them into a nice, sizeable dictionary.

a tau dictionary already exists:
http://www.minivault.com/Tauglossary.htm

in any case, my commander is Shas'elTash'var Mont'ka'vre. his name means heroic strike. And shas'ui kais'ka is my broadside, or "sureshot" as he was named!

None can step before them, they are the first, proud in their strength and jealous of their renown. Through the storms of the warp they come, upon the very tides of terror, but of such dangers they are uncaring. They are the Space Wolves, the Undefeated, the bane of the Emperor's foes."

I made a character for a fluff piece called Shas'vre Vior'la Lar'Shi Mesme, known to the Gue'vesa he works with as "Hero'vre". For those who don't know, Lar'Shi means "Hero" in Tau.

I think that this dictionary http://www.cygnusx1.info/tau/lexicon.asp is a bit better. I've started to make a grammary for tau language. Oh, and my commander is Shas'O Fal'Shia Ta'Ol.

I've given my commander the name Shas'O Vior'la Ka'Savon. Literally, it means "keen-eyed strike", which I figure roughly equates his name to "Commander Sniper"
