Default What's the tau word for colour?

I'm trying a new naming scheme for my army, and hit something of a concrete bunker. What's the tau word for colour? More importantly, what is the tau word for any particular colour, eg. red?

Thanks in advance.

PS: No 5th ed rumour rubbish in here, thank you. Keep that to some other topics - there's enough of them. :shifty:

The closest to colour I can find is 'Li', meaning light.

Good thought, but as Vior'la means 'hot blooded warrior', I think I'm going to have to say no to that idea.

Perhaps it might be a good idea to create some colour names? At the moment, the tau can't even ask what colour their armour is, let alone reply!

Something for Project: Tau, perhaps?

Those poor Tau. They can't have silly philosophical conversations like "Does that Por taste yellow?"

Thanks,

Monolith, it's "hot blooded, not hot blood. Hot blooded is an adjective, not a noun.

Therefore the sept thing kinda crumples into dust, as far as I can tell.
