Default Tau Language again.

I did a search on Tau language and someone said that there was a sight with something like 8400 tau words on it but I couldn't find it and they didn't give the site address does anyone know the link to this site?

I've tried to find it, but to no avail. There was an Eldar one, but where such knowledge is hidden, I cannot say...

Dunno if this is the one you mean(don't think it's 800) but I found it under "tau lexicon", try that further.

If you have a look, I've added a few words from the CPF... as well as a few other sources!

This was just asked the other day..

Another place to look first, other than a forum search: The Important Topics Sticky

We made a list a long time ago of all the Tau words we could find.. and so here it is, the Tau A to Z:

If I remember correctly, the Eldar one was also listed as 'Eldar A to Z' formerly a sticky in the Eldar Board.
Edit: Found it, here: Eldar A to Z

... There seriously aren't that many words (if there was, we'd know about it for one thing). What is on Cygnus and what we have here, is basically the biggest lists on the net available of Tau words etc.
