Default Quick Tau language question

The Tau word for human is Gue'la according to several sources but do they have a specific word for Sapce Marines?
thanks

the same-they know the gue'la call their super humans space marines but to them they are still only gue'la-lower beings, like eldar have mon keigh for humans as well-the fact you are in a massive suit doesn't change your race


also it seems logical as a shas'ui is still a shas'ui and a Tau regardless of whether he is in a battlesuit or a firewarrior squad


hope that helps

Correct - it's not the only source I've heard Marines called "Gue'Or'es'la"... "Powerfull Lowest Being".
