Anyone else interested in joining with me to learn Na'vi? I know some basics, and can teach you, but after that, it's all new to me too.

ta'li qwuct ul psay'a.

Yes that actually says something, no you will never figure it out and no it isn't Na'vi.

The Na'vi only have about 1000 vocab words with fragmented grammar.

While the notion of 'becoming as popular as Klingon' is noble, I think this professor is a major douchebag of epic proportions. There are numerous endangered languages in the world and he could have picked any one of them to construct his pseudo language. However, he decided to make one from scratch.

I like Avatar, and I enjoyed listening to the Na'vi speak because it sounds very similar to nselxcin and numerous other languages.

Don't hate. Na'vi is a very smooth and well written language. Granted it's small, Frommer is expanding it. It is more pleasing to the memikyun than Klingon.

That isn't even the point.

Avatar is essentially about preservation and understanding of culture with respect to beliefs and ancient heritage. I find it rather ironic that they have no less than 10 endangered languages at their disposal (according to National Geographic). Yet Frommer and Cameron decided to make up a language that has neither a rich heritage nor culture behind it.

They stole the ideals from the American Indians, without due respect.

All i have to say is that Avatar was amazing (really cool in 3d) and if you're reading this thread and haven't seen it you should go. Cool language too.

Yes, it is, and yes, it was. And to all the people saying that we should have used an endangered language, where's the originality in that? Creating an alien language takes skill, and since he didn't use another language, it made it harder.

Alright, the "Fiskxawngìri tsap’alute sengi oe" part from the other topic then. Unless you just happened to construct one of the few full sentences on Wikipedia all by yourself.

I've got tickets to see it on Jan 25th, I don't think I'll walk away with a passion to learn the language though...

It was there. I can construct a few sentences, but they aren't insulting at all. And that passion came after seeing the movie twice ;)
