Ta'agra is the language spoken by the Khajiit of Elsweyr.

The Name Khajiit[edit]

The word "khajiit" is derived from the Ta'agra words "khaj" and "-iit", khaj meaning "sand" or "desert" and the suffix -iit indicates an occupation or place of residence. As such khajiit might be translated as "desert-dweller" or "one who works in a desert"; but as what one commonly does in a desert is to walk, khajiit is normally translated as "desert-walker", and thus are many Khajiit known.[1]
