Xenomorph is also a generic term. It doesn't actually specify the Alien anymore than using a capital A does.

What does SM think about Internecivus raptus though?

The term Xenomorph is made up of ancient Greek for "stranger" or "alien" and for "shape" or "form", while Yautja is just a fantasy name.

Yea sounds cooler so I accept.

Now just finished up on the rest of the interview, some fun and interesting stuff right there! I had me a hearty chuckle when both Perrys just went in and wrote the Predator mindset anyway. Best decision they made on this  :laugh:

And hey for Yautja pronunciation purists out there, least he said that ya'll can pronounce it in anyway you wish as he never saw it as that big of a deal, so go ham. It's also funny how despite attempts of finding another literation for the term like Hish, Yautja is too foundational in the Predator lore for anything to be changed that easily. I mean the Hish itself was an attempted and look how that failed.
