Default Expanded Tau Glossary/Dictionary?

Hey, those of you with the new 'Dex - did GW expand the glossary at all, or did they leave us with the original list of useless words? :

I ask because even though I have seen a few non-GeeDub sites with bigger Tau language glossaries, they are still lacking in common Tau-player words like:


...the list goes on... are those guys just making the words up, like GW did, or is there an "official list" somewhere that has a lot more words than Codex Tau has?

It has quite the large tau dictionary.

There's a handful of new words scattered through the codex, but that's it. In fact, the lexicon fluff piece is mostly gone.

I still am trying to find 'Wild' and 'Blood' in the Tau language for the translation of my Commander :P

I've check the link above, and neither of the words I'm after are listed (not that there is too much surprise).
Is there an unofficial list floating anywhere? A fansite based one for example.

Something about naming my commander 'commander crisis pants' has a major appeal.
