    Re: Mando'a Dictionary

    Very nice. However, I'd reccomend going here instead... http://www.karentraviss.com/html/newmando.htm

    Links to the complete Mando'a dictionary (which is currently sitting around 1100 words I believe... she's always adding to it, updates twice a year I believe, along with grammar guides, sample speech, etc. Very handy too. I've been slowly trying to teach it to myself... pretty cool language, actually. As the Mando's would say, Bic Jate. And as you can tell, Ni nu jorhaa'i mando'a jate.

    Re: Mando'a Dictionary

    based on Kar'buir's (Karen Traviss) spreadsheet available from www.karentraviss.com I've created a mini dictionary lookup. You can download it HERE

    There's about 1500 entries in there

    I did paste this into another thread a while back. Search is your friend

    Mando'a Lessons

    I was told by Asok via PM that many on here do not know/speak/write Mando'a (The language of the Mando'ade) so I figured I could help give people the appropriate tools so they can learn it and start using it whilst in custom or while around friends just to perturb them.
    XD

    I have done a lot of tutorial pages for the game I have been playing so I am going to treat this in the same manner and do it jokingly yet serious.

    Hope you all enjoy! XD

    Re: Mando'a Dictionary

    Here's a link to a site that actually translates what you type in. Not all words work, and it works better if you only put in one word at a time, but it's still a good translator. Here's the link: http://www.tc.umn.edu/~joela/mrk/mando.html
