A male and female Khajiit

General informationEdit

Ta'agra is the language spoken by the natives of the province of Elsweyr, the Khajiit. They are a race of feline humanoids, and their civilization is millenia old. The grammar of the language has been influenced greatly by that of Cyrodyll and Skyrim, and is now very similar to english. There are a sub-species of Khajiit who have been abandoned from normal society and now reside in the desert caves of Elsweyr, they are referred to by most as "Ja'Alfiq" Literally "the afflicted". They have a similar language to that of the Khajiit 100-200 years ago, before it was influenced by other Tamrielan continents.
