I put together a little dictionary for Alternian terms that have been used in Homestuck.
If you know of something that I missed, let me know and I can add it. And credit you :0

Troll Anatomy

Animals

Food

Household Terms

Law

Hobbies and Terms for Them

Myth and Religion

Reproduction

Romance

Sayings

Social Order

Solar System

A smol thanks to dong_jr, Beans, pennyango, and Phrike for helping me find some things :0
And Fubar for pointing out some other things :000

RE: Troll Dictionary -
I belive "Cardiovascular pump" is used to describe the heart, but I couldn't give you a page number.
Also, HEIRESS APPARENT is the term used for young fuschiabloods, and HEIRESS is used as well, though that might just be a given.

This is really thorough and well done! Thank you for posting it!

RE: Troll Dictionary -
I don't know about "shame globes". Kakrkat did mention autoerogenous shame globes, however, which might be genitalia or have even more bizzare purpose for all we know.

Good job on not mixing up "wiggler" and "wRiggling day" - they're often confused for each other. But there are no "wRigllers" or "wiggling days", only what you described.

RE: Troll Dictionary -
I have yet to read all of this, but jesus CHRIST I'm only on the first section and I'm already impressed. I don't recognize most of these terms and I've just realized that I sorely need to go back to rereading homestuck so I may apply this newfound knowledge.

Or, uh. Rediscover it?

Holy heck this is thorough. Good job, you guys!! :0

I think that "autoerogenous" is just Karkat's choice of adjective for them, which likely does imply them as related to the genetalia (as does the fact that his other body parts used most in insults are the bone bulge and nook - aside from the chitinous windhole, but that one usually has context akin to "shut up").

More importantly, NICE! Thanks for compiling this all in one place; definitely gonna keep this memo handy when writing.

Are the mirthful messiahs "prophets" for sure? I was under the impression that they were heavily implied, later on, to be Caliborn and Calliope. (Sorry for sending so many separate replies! I think I'm done commenting for the moment, carry on.)

RE: Troll Dictionary -
I thought Mirthful Messiahs were supposed to be Doc Scratch and Lord English, given Gamzee's line here:
TC: and now i'm the last one, so i finally motherfuckin understand.
TC: I FINALLY GOT MY MOTHERFUCKING UNDERSTAND ON TO WHO THE MIRTHFUL MESSIAHS ARE.
TC: they were always both me. :o)
TC: AND ALSO MOTHERFUCKING ME. Do:

I'll add these too, thank ya
