    Thanks everyone for all your support with this. Over time I want to expand on it as more words come to light and even add a few made up ones which would be easy to do as I can mark them to be unofficial.

    Edana, as you know Argonians earn names by their traits and characteristics. Later in my story, there's a little Argonian girl. At one point she is crying and Aela sits her on her knee and calms her down saying "Shuush!" This gives Aela the idea of calling her Neesha. Knee-Shush. Later, Neesha shoots an arrow at a target in teh yard. She is hiding in teh grass as she takes her shot, Farkas advertently walks in her line of sight and gets shot in teh backside.

    This gices Sotek an idea to call Neesha 'Hunts in the Grass'. So her name becomes, Neesha Hunts in the Grass.

    I'm not sure what to suggest but there are a few words to do with healing. Being you.... I'd suggest something like, Heals from the Heart. As you always pour your heart into everything.

    Ok, this is way too soppy. Time to tear a deer to shreds....... Awwwwooooo

    So, I hate to correct you here Sotek but their Saxhleel names are given to them in a ceremony not long after their birth. A lot of them are in fact quite proud of these names, however, since most men and mer can't pronounce said names a lot of Argonians adopt what they call imperial names, these are the names like Hunts in the grass. Some refuse to lower themselves like that and will continue to use their Argonian names regardless, Madesi in Riften is a prime example of that.

    Haha, don't worry about correcting me, Teineeva. Especialy when you are correct. In fact I might even include this as the naming ceremony would be of interest.

    Had a quick look at Murkmire on PTS, a book called The Sharper Tongue: A Jel Primer caught my eye. I went hunting for it but got distracted by a new Lusty Argonian Maid volume.

    This is really interesting, I might use some of these words in a chapter of the story that I am writing.

    This is a really good start to this project. At some point, members need to start adding non-canon words. Conlangs can be difficult, let alone ones that requires organs and nasal passages that humans cannot utter without.

    I'll see if i can't drum up some grammar. All that is provided so far is nouns and titles.
