Transcript of NP1 - Hello Na'vi

Na'vi
This lesson will introduce you to the language,
and some useful phrases.
And remember, in the beginning,
we're all , just like Jake. But hopefully you
will not think that "the language is a pain."
skxawng
A good start...
..is to know what the language looks like.
Txewì lu 'evengan a solalew zìsìt avomun. Mì sray apxa kelku si soaiahu. Soaia lu hì'i – nì'aw sempul, sa'nok, tsmukan alu Loak a solalew zìsìt amevopey, sì Txewì. Ke lu poru kea smuke.
... and maybe a little closer idea of what it sounds like.
This is a Na'vi version of the Chrismas carol "Silent Night".
Na'vi, here I come!
A good thing to know about Na'vi, is when you're talking to someone, you need to use the word .
You put it in front of the one/ones you're talking to.
ma
It's used several times in the movie, for example:
Ma Tsu'tey! Kempe si nga?
What are you doing, Tsu'tey?
Kaltxì ma evi!
Hello, children!
My first words
If you want to greet someone,
repeat what Grace said in a previous slide;
Or you can say something like .
If you choose the very famous ,
don't forget the gesture:
Kaltxì
Neytiri teaches Jake some easy words in the movie;
Nari
Mikyun
Skxawng
(which doesn't mean forehead..)
Greetings!
Trr lefpom
Oel ngati kameie
Goodbyes..
Choose between ,

Vocabulary
A shorter and easier answer to this question is just:
Oe lu Jakesully.
Lu is a good verb to remember!
(srane is sometimes
shortened into sran)
The & a/an?
In Na'vi, there's no way to say "the" or put "a/an" in front of a noun. You just have to assume from the context what is being said.
Example:

If Neytiri says
She could be saying "Jake is a moron." or "Jake is the moron."
What is more likely?
Another example: Grace says
Does she just mean "Hi, children!" or "Hi the children!"
What is more likely?
"Jake lu skxawng."
"Kaltxì, ma evi!"
