Looking through an older Dwarf army book in my local gaming store, I noted the fact that there was a glossary of Dwarven words as well as a Dwarven rune alphabet. Now, since I have a Dwarf army I'm currently tinkering with - a long-term project, themed in light, wintery colours with snow bases, based on the idea that a Dwarf lord put down his oath stone atop a tall mountain, failed to achieve his goal, and refused to come down, so his clan had to relocate there - this would be very useful for me, so I'm wondering if any of you longbeards, not-so-longbeards, actually-quite-shortbeards or beardlings out there know of any list like this, whether the 'officially approved' one(s) or any that are agreed upon by common consent, that I might access from the safety and comfort of my squeaky little computer chair, I'd much appreciate it.

Bugmans Brewery - The Home for all Warhammer Dwarf Fans -> Dwarf Language (Khazalid)
I think those two articles will help you.
Thanks for the help. @ Royal Marine Machine: I thought so, too.

've just been having a little fun writing up some of the entries from my book of grudges in khalazid, obviously I can't use the characters on here, but in roman characters the first one goes:
Milluz Milluz Siz Kazardal Drunged Strollen Uskular. Rhunrikazi Kaagrim Daltrom Drenged Runkha Rikazi Strollen Uskulazar Zanguzi. Azaz Bolg Drengar Urz Sked, Dawhazkal Urz Drenged. Azaz Anganded.
Literal word for word translation:
(1000)(1000)(Six)(The People of Kazard)(Defeated)(Walking)(Death). (The Runelord)(Jagrim)([Good/Strong]beard)(Killed in combat)(Easily)(Lord)(Walking)(Death)(Blooddrinker).(The Axe)(Gut)(Killer in combat)(Was)(Stollen),(Young, fiery dwarven warriors)(were)(Killed in combat).(The axe)(Will be found).
Translation to english:
2006 The people of Kazard defeated the undead. Runelord Jagrim Fullbeard killed the Vampire Lord in single combat. The Axe Gut Killer was stolen. Young dwarves were killed in combat. The axe will be found.
Google has Brought me this link:
which came from typing in "Steel and Stone" Dwarfs, and hitting the I'm Feeling Lucky button
Noticing something from the OP - some oil will help the chair.
Ok Guys, do you think this makes sense:
Dawial Azul get Karag Mortaz*. Af gand migdhalaz a kol. Af gand barag, az a dron. Barag Dreng karakha. Krunk, thrund. Zornaz Zharrha.
Word for word:
(A Group of Dwarfs) (Sturdy) (go to) (Mountain) (*Place name) (They) (discover) (Tower) (of) (black). (They) (discover) (War machine), (axe/weapon) (of) (thunder). (Warmachine) (slay) (mountain!). (Disaster) (explosion). (Plateau) (fire).
In Old Worldish (ish):
A group of sturdy dwarfs go to karag Mort. They find a black tower. They find a warmachine, a weapon of thunder. The Warmachine can slay mountains! disaster, explosion. The Plateau is on fire!
I think we should (we as in the dwarf community of LO) make an LO's Guide to Khazadlid. would be cool
