When writing, especially from the point of view of an non-human/alien being, it doesn't usually make sense for said character to use human slang/terminalogy. So, to help make it clear that these characters are not human, I make up words to replace certain human ones. I do not out of my way to make a whole dictionary of course, just a word here and there where it makes sense that the word would be different. So here is a list of words I've made up, along with a brief defination and which genre I use it in. This page will expand over time, no doubt.
