Transcript of NP9 - Changing words


Adjective Changing words This prezi will teach you how to change Na'vi words.
For example how to make a noun an adjective or an adjective a noun. Si We've already mentioned this in earlier prezis, but let's look at it again.
If you want to make a verb out of a noun, you add si. Lrrtok -> Oer lu lrrtok. Oe lrrtok si. Kelku -> Kelku lu tsawl. Oe kelku si kelutralur. Kelku si Lrrtok si The infixes go into si. S<0><1><2>i noun -> verb Nì- adjective -> adverb Nì- is put in the front of an adjective to create an adverb.
We know the word win. win -> Palulukan lu win. nìwin Palulukan tul nìwin. ngay -> nìngay Ngeyä txe'lan lu ngay. Nga nìngay lu oer yawne. Le- noun -> adjective If you put le- in front of a noun, it turns into an adjective. hrrap -> Palulukan lu hrrap. lehrrap Palulukan lu ioang lehrrap. Oer lu fpom. fpom -> Oe lu lefpoma tute. lefpom Tì- adjective/verb -> noun As you see, the "new" adjective doesn't need
an -a-. "Ioang alehrrap" is wrong. This is
because it's used on the right side of the noun.
But if it's used on the left side, then you use -a. As in the example below. rol -> tìrol Oe rerol. Oel stawm tìrolit. wew -> tìwew Oe 'efu wew. Tìwew txonur lu. This works with both verbs and adjectives: <awn> <awn> is a pre-first position infix, and is used to make a verb an adjective. With the "new" adjective, you need to use the -a-. yom Pol yom fkxenit. Tsa'u set lu fkxen ayawnom. yawnom -> fkxen ayawnom <us> <us> is a first position infix that also turns a verb into an adjective.
Just as <awn> it needs the -a- to be used. verb -> adjective verb -> adjective tspang -> tspawnang. Neytiri tspolang pot. Po set lu tutan atspawnang. hahaw -> husahaw Neytiri hahaw. Neytiri lu tute ahusahaw. Jake zup. zup -> zusup Jake lu zusupa tute. Other infixes Now we know almost every infix, but four. We're going to look at those now. <asy> <ìsy> <ats> <uy> <asy> & <ìsy> This is when something definitely is going to happen. The "s" is put inside <ay> and <ìy>, but does not work with any other infixes.
They are both first position infixes. Oel tspasyang pot! Oe-l tsp<asy>ang po-t. <ats> <ats> is kind of the opposite to the <asy> and <ìsy>. It's used when you're not sure about the action. It's a second position infix. Below you see two sentences which Neytiri could have said before Jake caught his ikran. Pol tswìyayatson ikranit. Po-l tsw<ìy>ay<ats>on ikran-it. Ikranìl pot ke tspìyatsang. Ikran-ìl po-t ke tsp<ìy><ats>ang. <uy> <uy> is only used in special occasions. It has a very honorific meaning and is for example used in the ceremony where Jake becomes a man. It's a second position infix. Jake set luyu tutan Omatikayaä. Jake set l<uy>u tut-an Omatikaya-ä. What you know

Vocabulary How to use tì-, nì-, le-, si, <awn>, <us> to change words
The infixes <asy>, <ìsy>, <ats> and <uy> nìwin, nìngay, lehrrap, lefpom, tìrol, tìwew, tspang, ioang, trr, txon Made by Le'eylan (leeylan@hotmail.com) Pictures from avatar-italia.net Oe tsun tswivayon nìltsan to tsaskxawng Jake. forum.learnnavi.org for more lessons ioang trr txon But.. Something to think about is that some words are not proper ones. For example you do understand the word , made from the verb , but it's not a legal word.
You can of course use it, but have in mind that it isn't a proper word. "tìpom" "pom"
