[edit] VocabularyNote: The following section contains words that some may consider to be unsuitable for younglings.
As a special note, it needs to be said that there is no word for \"hero\" in Mando'a - only a word for those who are not heroes, but \"cowards\": hut'uun/e.

The following are a few of the known Mando'a words, and the most accurate possible translations thereof.

For the full Mando'a dictionary, see: [1]
