Dictionary of Clan Terminology by Sunny Cat

Sunny Cat lists terminology used in the Warriors universe.

hello all! this is my first article on the blog despite being an active member for over a year and a half. all terminology is taken from the warriors wiki while i wrote each definition (ive also decided to keep each definition relatively simple so that warriors fans of all reading levels can enjoy the dictionary). note that this article does not include insults and phrases (eg: mousebrain, may starclan light your path, etc).
