Eldar Language Guide

This guide is dedicated to the language of the Eldar, the doomed race of Games Workshop's Warhammer 40k. Since the late 1990's I've been compiling Eldar terms used by a variety of authors in a variety of works (generally without reference to one another) and welding them into a language that fans can use for their own works. Over the years many Eldar players have used this guide in their own works, while others have contributed significant time and effort to it's contents. It is my longest running web project, and still going strong.

Please note : This guide is by no means official!
