  1. I'd like to point out, that "En Taro Adun" Actually translates to "In honor of Adun"

    Which then renders a lot of your translations incorrect, as it states that "En" does not mean "for".

    Adun Toridas: Adun hide us

  6. En taro Adun, Arassar! I am Zakee Khattak, of the Terrans, and I have found your blog to be of great use in my dealings with thr Protoss. I have noticed that with many of the phrases, there are suffixes and prefixes affixed to mamy of the words. These are not listed in the lexicon, and would be quite useful if you would have a look into these and add them for clarity. It would be a big help if you also took a look into the grammar of khalani and made a separate page for grammar. These are some suggestions that would be quite useful if implemented.
    Thank you for your attention, Grammarian. En taro Adun!

    1. En taro Adun, Zakee Khattak of the Terrans! I am pleased you found my accounts of great use and hope your dealings with us will prosper. You speak truly, the affixes will not be listed in the lexicon, since they are actually part of the morphology, but they will be fully explained in the different entries I will write. I will consider posting a list of them at some point, thanks for the suggestion. Also thank you for the suggestion of making a separate page wholly devoted to the grammar, indeed this is why I've included label "grammar" in those posts that pertain to grammar explanations, you can see this label at the bar to the right of the posts. I will definitely think about it. I hope you continue to enjoy the rest of the blog and am truly sorry for the delay of this reply.

      Thanks again for your comment and suggestions and may Adun protect you!

    1. According to the game it was translated to "Adun hide you", in my interpretation of the language I translated it as "May Adun give (you) refuge", being the more literal.

    1. As you can see above and at the "Greetings" page it is the same greeting formula "En taro X" using the name of Tassadar instead of Adun. Both great heroes of our race.

  9. Greetings Arassar Shelak, I have a question for you as I am confused about something. I understand "En Taro (Name of a Protoss warrior)" is the standard greeting, but when are certain names to be used. I remember from Starcraft1 and a few cutscenes from Starcraft2 that the greeting was "En Taro Tassadar" but I am not sure why it was changed to "En Taro Adun" other then the fact that Tassadar has moved on from this plane of existence. Another part of this question is how does the Dark Templar "Adun Toridas" work? Is it simply one more way of wording the same greeting, or is their something the Nerazim do as part of their culture. Could you please explain that for me? The other question I had is about farewells. What farewells are to be used and at what times? My thanks!

    1. Right you are, my friend. But you've got it the other way around. The greeting used to be "En taro Adun" in honour of Adun, who was a great Protoss at the time of the Great War and the separation of the Dark Templar. After the events of the first StarCraft and Tassadar's selfless act of sacrifice we started using his name also to honour him.

      The Dark Templar use the greeting "Adun Toridas" because Adun became a hero to both cultures, since he helped many Dark Templar leave Aiur for Shakuras, thus saving them. So you could say this is the customary and more common greeting for the Nerazim, but Adun is praised by both the Nerazim and the Khalai.

      The farewells are listed here and elsewhere, and according to their meaning you are free to use the one that best suits you, my friend. Hope you find this answer helpful.

  10. Hi i go as Soul but i was wondering for an english name or a name at all how would you convert it? We need a alphabet if you are to create one that would be great i would be happy to help as i noticed that many eastern i.e greece eygipt bassically old citys resemble protoss language structure and culture somewhat so we could base it off of one other thing if i where to address my self in a manner would be.....Tar'at Neraz Soul (tribe) which would be Psychés tou kenoú which is greek but has a protoss language sounding which means souls of the void thanks :)

  13. En Taro Adun, Arassar, I am []. I put aside our differences as Neraz and Templarin, and come to you as a fellow scholar. The preservers of our history and language have recorded the meanings of 'En Taro.' The use had always meant 'in honor of' until the end of the great war. With the loss of Auir, Some of our language was blurred. But since Artanis reclaimed Auir, I have found the original meanings of 'en' and 'taro.' 'En means in or of, some times both. "Tar' is honor. 'Taro' is a conjugated form, the 'o' representing the third person. I understand that the language of our race has differed for you from me, between Shakuras and Auir. I do not wish to impose upoon you, but this was the original meaning. Khassar Daelaam.

  18. What does “an adan atum” mean? For none of those words are in you lexicon. But I have a idea that they may mean in some form or fashion “my life for my people!” Anyway that’s what i think, I also think that it’s the zealot who says it al the time. I am a Protoss player, and I’ve notice that there are few Protoss player in my group of friends (actually just me). I am curious why not many people play Protoss, is because it’s really hard to play Protoss? If I come across any other phrases I ask about those phrases definitions to! Keep up the hard work! Also I have coming up with a Protoss name for my self, Alankee Var? Honestly I would talk forever about the Protoss language
