Adjective and noun

Studying the gramatics a bit, it is quite visible how an adjective and a noun fits together:
adj'noun

Most usual is it's combination with 'quel' ('high'), but not only:
Quel'dorei
Quel'Thalas
Quel'Zaram
Quel'danil
Sin'dorei
etc.

The two word translation of 'Kim'jael' as 'little rat' can then be split into two serperate words - 'kim' - 'little' and 'jael' - 'rat'.

Also using this method, you can combine the adjectives with nouns yourself. Examples:
Kim'zaram - little blade
Sin'danil - blood peak
etc.

interesting... I would like to learn Thalassion.

You can... by doing some research yourself or learning from the sources that are available. Though not everything is known and not everything is translated correctly.
Actually, I'd like to learn Thalassian too, just that there isn't enough information and translations to learn it fully.

In this format, would it make sense to derive the word "sian" (language) from "Thalassian" (Home Language)? Though, perhaps this would be more plausible if the punctuation was as "Thalas'Sian".

Though it makes sense, more likely Thalassian is just a slang from English (Common) - just like Russian, Persian etc.
