Khuzdul

So uuuuh not that many dwarf RPer use that language, I’m one of them actually, I only use it now and then but it’s rather rare, truth be told. 

Anyway, I figured I’d post a few sentences and words, things that could be helpful. I’m not completely certain that every word is right but it’s the thought that counts, eh?

Vem [Greetings, informal, singular]
Vemu [Greetings, informal, plural]
Gamut manan [Good day]
Gamut manan ai-menu [Good day to you]

Rasup gamat [farewell] 
Rasup gamut ai-menu [farewell to you]

Targ menu bundul gazaru [Your beard speaks of your wisdom]
Menu tessu [You are everything]
Menu gamut khed [You are a wonderful person]
Men lananubukhs menu [I love you]

Rukhsul menu [You offspring of an orc]
Ozirum menu seleku [You couldn’t forge a spoon)

Menu shirumund [You are beardless]
Gelek menu caragu rukhs [You smell like orc dung]
Khagun/Khagam menu reliku pembu rukhas [Your parents populated an orkish village]
