Transcript of NP4 - Verbs

I know a lot of verbs,
No need to feel like this.
It's easy!
An infix is a short affix, put inside a verb.
Example of infixes are:
now what?
<er> <ol> <ìm> <ay>
In front of them are the positions.
The infixes can be placed in three positions. 0, 1 and 2. The 0 is always just in front of 1.
The positions are in front of vowels.
We have one vowel and "ll".
<2>
<2>
Positions
("ll" is also
included here.)
We have two vowels, "a" and "o".
<0><1>
<0><1>
In front of them are the positions.
Taron
T ar on
Plltxe
P lltx e
Lu & -ru/-ur
Oe lu Jake.
Po lu Neytiri.
Po lu Seze.
Lu is an important and good verb to know.
It can be used as Jake does here

But it can also be used like this



-ur / -ru is a suffix that together with lu can replace
the verb "to have". -ru is for words ending in vowels,
and -ur for consonants.
Sometimes -ru is shortened into just "-r".
This suffix is not only used for "to have".
Tsko lu Neytiriru.
Ke & Rä'ä
Ke goes in front of the verb. With verbs like "tsaheyl si" or "lrrtok si", ke goes in front of si. "Lrrtok ke si."
Examples of ke:
Rä'ä works just like ke. "Lrrtok si"
with rä'ä becomes "lrrtok rä'ä si".

Example of rä'ä:
Rä'ä 'ampi!
More about -ru / -ur in next slide.
Now you need to learn how to use verbs.
In Na'vi, you change a verb through an infix.
Example:
You will learn infixes in a lesson further on.
Poel tìng fkxenit.
fkxen
tìng
Oe ke kllkxem,
ki heyn.
What you know


Vocabulary

Nouns can become verbs by adding "si" after them.
Tsaheyl si and lrrtok si are two of them.
Their infixes go in the "si".

Tok & lu
Sorewn is talking about a place in this picture:
And if she wants to tell you where she is,
she would have to use the verb "tok",
and not the verb "lu".

Example:
NOT:
The two sentences above mean completely different things.
"tok" is used to say where someone is, and "lu" for what someone is.
fìtsenge!
Oel tok fìtsenget.
Oe lu fìtsenge.
