  • Reworked our interpretation of an original source line. Originally S'rathra's line of "Bali jihatt aratataami" was interpreted as "Y'all mercenary are-the-same". Not only did this not fit with our pluralization rules, but it also left us with an ambiguous word for "to-be-the-same" which we've always struggled to deal with. We have reinterpreted this line as "Bali jihatta ra tataami". This yields a much cleaner "Y'all mercenaries are [the] same". While this may not be an exact fit for the cadence of S'rathra's line, it does fit in nicely with our current grammar system and solves a long-standing problem in the interpretation of this line. "ra" in this line is interpreted as a truncated form of the word "vara" for "are". We have noticed in the course of the project that many words were starting to become long and cumbersome, and that doesn't seem to fit with how a casual and free-spirited race like the khajiit would speak. In coming updates we will be implementing systems for the shortening of words to make the language flow better and be more in line with how we interpret khajiiti attitudes to be.
  • Added explanation of truncating simple verbs for brevity.
  • Added explanation of inflection for interrogative sentences in the Grammar section.
  • Changed grammar rule for adding +iit suffix. If a word ends in a vowel, that vowel is now dropped before adding the suffix.
  • Changed grammar rule for adding +ith suffix. If a word ends in a vowel, that vowel is now dropped before adding the suffix.
  • Changed grammar rule for adding +oh/+ohka/+ohse suffixes. If a word ends in a vowel, that vowel is now dropped before adding the suffix.
  • Added explanation of active and passive voice to the Grammar section.
  • Changed word for "love" to "ari" from "isha"
  • Changed word for "oil" to "dojne" from "dojnea"
  • Word changes from grammar rule adjustments: sa'iit becomes asiit (irregular) kalaa'iit becomes kaliit. jeke'iit becomes jekiit. laa'iit becomes aliit (irregular). rai'iit becomes ariit (irregular). etejiit becomes etiit. trovise'iit becomes trovisiit. sina'iit becomes siniit. ro'sina'iit becomes ro'siniit. dela'iit becomes deliit. mezai'iit becomes meziit. korna'iit becomes korniit. ro'iit becomes oriit (irregular).
  • Word changes from grammar rule adjustments (changes apply also to past and future tense): alku'ith becomes alkith. kego'ith becomes kegith. yena'ith becomes yenith. zrasha'ith becomes zrashith. ikasho'ith becomes ikashith. katha'ith becomes kathith. sallidadith becomes sallidithka (irregular). rejizeva'ithoh becomes rejizevithoh. raszai'ith becomes raszith. rejizeva'ith becomes rejizevith. jimetu'ith becomes jimetith. dojne'ith becomes dojnith. da'khe'ith becomes da'kith.

  • Some time ago, ZOS was kind enough to send us a thorough list of their Ta'agra terms. It took some time to go through and incorporate this list into the project, and we had to make some changes to some of our content, but we've finally finished this update and we've incorporated the vast majority of what they sent us!
  • Added word for "[to] name" (hasaa) from canon words document, and numerous synonyms
  • Added word for "certain" (zav [formerly motion]) and numerous synonyms
  • Added word for "glory" (hadal-ziir) from canon words document, and numerous synonyms
  • Added word for "heart (metaphorical)" (khunu'tu) from canon words document
  • Added word for "hurry" (fifeh'rai) from canon words document, and numerous synonyms
  • Added word for "life" (vijah) from canon words document. Note: As "vijah" has been identified as the proper, literal word for "life", we have had to reinterpret the common usage of "var" for life. We still interpret "var" to mean sugar, and given it's tremendous importance to the khajiit, they commonly use this term in a slang form to refer to life, though it is not the proper term
  • Added word for "light" (luz) from canon words document. Note: A canon word for light, "siir", already existed. "Siir" still means light, but has been reinterpreted to mean "heavenly light" such as the light from the moons vs. "luz" which is mundane light, such as from a torch
  • Added word for "Lorkhaj/Ghost Moon" (zhubhal'jay) from canon words document
  • Added word for "merchant" (bajiit) and numerous synonyms
  • Added word for "mercy" (dalaa)
  • Added word for "milk-drinker" (jimetiit)
  • Added word for "never" (dov'kono)
  • Added word for "praise" (beba) from canon words document, and numerous synonyms
  • Added word for "radiant/luminous" (sala). See notes on change of "bright" to "jobal"
  • Added word for "sneak" (zalvi [formerly dance]) and numerous synonyms
  • Changed word for "all" to "tsin'ra" from "raj" per canon words document
  • Changed word for "always" to "raj'kono" to "raj'kona"
  • Changed word for "bright" to "jobal" from "sala" per canon words document. Note: ZOS's Ta'agra dictionary provided to us lists "jobal" as the word for "bright". However, many khajiit roleplayers are using "sala kha'jay" as the greeting for bright moons. We have simply changed the meaning of "sala" to "radiant/luminous" so it will still work in this context, and so "jobal kha'jay" and "sala kha'jay" will still both work nicely for a khajiiti greeting
  • Changed word for "claws" to "khrassa" from "daytha" per canon words document
  • Changed word for "dance" to "zha'ja" from "zalvi" per canon words document
  • Changed word for "every" to "raj" from "skra"; note: "skra'il" still means "everything"
  • Changed word for "feet" (body part) to "dhassa" from "tuzda'a" per canon words document
  • Changed word for "foot" (body part) to "dhass" from "tuzda"
  • Changed word for "game" to "zhab" from "zahb" per canon words document
  • Changed word for "in" to "shabar" from "in" per canon words document
  • Changed word for "inside" to "shaseve" from "inseve"
  • Changed word for "motion" to "hai" from "zav" per canon words document (and alternate forms like move, motionless, etc.)
  • Changed word for "prayer" to "jhaza'dro" from "sa'alaina" per canon words document
  • Changed word for "sweeten" to "koomurr" from "varith" per canon words document
  • Corrected entry for fox/foxes/foxy where English and Ta'agra were in the wrong columns
  • Corrected switched column headings in Phrases page
  • Replaced link to S'rathra/Cyrus conversation in Source Docs, the old video had been removed
  • Special: Asterisks * are being added to the dictionary for some homonyms. Such as "foot" (the measurement) vs. "foot" (the body part). The word we feel will be less commonly used will receive an asterisk. This will result in the automatic translator picking the word without the asterisk by default, which we feel will be the word people most commonly are actually looking for. In this example, you can still force the translator to return the less common "foot (measurement)" translation by typing "foot*" onto the English side of the translator
  • Updated Phenomic Inventory: Corrected symbol for aveolar approximate ɹ , added aveolar trill r , added voiceless velar affricate k͡x
  • Updated Phrases and Source Documents pages with corrections from changes made in this update
