Giantkin Lexicon

A list of confirmed words in Giantkin/Saramar. For suggestions/additions, please use the Discussion page and include a link to the relevant document the term is used in (or if it is an in-game item/location, enough information staff can find it for review).

Notes on Language: While many tribes continue to use Pre-Saramar versions of words for their written texts, some segments of the language persist both in Kilanirij and throughout the Giantmen clans. Below is a small selection of those words. Pre-Saramar is noted. If only one type is listed, assume it bridges both written texts. Not surprisingly, some of these variances have borne through into the spoken word.
