Khazalid lexicon

From Warhammer - Age of Sigmar - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search
For more information please see the main article on Khazalid, the language of the Dwarfs.

The Khazalid lexicon is a list of words and phrases and their meanings in alphabetical order which have already appeared in Warhammer publications, rather than words created using root words and signifiers. For instance, Zhufbar is a compound word (the name of a Dwarf hold meaning "Torrent gate"), so Zhuf (torrent) and Bar (gate) have also been included as separate words. However if Zhuf and Bar had been mentioned separately, but not Zhufbar, then one would not combine the words and put them in this Lexicon, as including every possible word combination would be tiresome and make the article overly long. Obviously in the Warhammer world they would be written in runes or other characters rather than English characters.
