Xi'an Dictionary

Xē’suelen! Welcome to the Xi’an dictionary. In it, you will find a compilation Xi’an words, along with their translations. The legend at the top serves as a guide to the abbreviations for parts of speech used throughout the dictionary. This is a living document. It will change as the Xi’an and their language are developed.

If you’d like to participate in the development of the Xi’an language, we’d love to have your input! Please visit the Xi’an Language subgroup in Spectrum and introduce yourself. You can also discuss the development of the dictionary, discuss the language and culture, and look up useful resources.
