    Kaltx nimun!

    Ahh.. the Kinship System. This is Jim Cameron's territory. We don't know much about how the Na'vi handle it.

    For now, we must use long strings of known words:

    Nephew: 'itan [tsmuke/tsmukan/tsmuk]
    son of the [sister/brother/sibling]

    Niece: 'ite [tsmuke/tsmukan/tsmuk]
    daughter of the [sister/brother/sibling]

    Cousin: ['itan/'ite] [tsmuke/tsmukan/tsmuk] [sa'nok/sempul]
    [son/daughter] of the [sister/brother/sibling] of [mother/father]

    We only know for certain thus far, these words:

    kaltxi again NOW i've got a question for you!
    Could you tell me how is nephew / niece and auntie / uncle in Na'vi? I have some 'adopted' nephews & nieces on the forum , and I would like to say 'kaltxi' properly addressing them
    Ooh! and what about... cousins?? I am sure the Na'vi have large families!

    Hey there

    You pretty much got it.

    Nari = eye
    si = something that you often see after a noun that makes it a verb, kinda means "do"

    Srung = help/assistance
    srung si = to do assistance / help

    Tkangkem = (the) work
    tkangkem si = to do work

    Nari si is kind of idiomatic. To do an eye. Or Eye as a verb. It kind of has the meaning look out / watch out / be careful.

    Hey it's cool if you Na'vi speaking isn't where you like it to be. It's about playing around with the language, getting a feel for it and using it and having fun with it. Hey you're a translator! That may help you on your quest to master the Na'vi language.. which by comparison to most natural Earth languages is very simple and straightforward.

    All good things come to those who can wait... Hmm.. Literally, that would be something like: Fra'u asltsan za'u ne fo a tsun pivey. (use an English word order on purpose to make it easier) I'm not sure what a very uniquely Na'vi way to say this is.

    awright then!
    Err... Nari si... nari = eye, + si = and (?)... so, what would that mean? "Watch it" ?

    sorry my Na'vi speaking skills are 4.1 light years from being perfect! which is quite an embarrasment actually, cos I am a translator, and I am sure I would love to speak Na'vi , too... Ah well. What would be a good Na'vi proverb for "all good things come to those who can wait"?

    Oh, & pity that Oma Tirea is not around anymore, but maybe one day he will come back. Some people disappear into the brush - and then show up again. Like yours truly, in fact

    Oeru meuia - It's an honour to me

    It's easy to mix up mui (fair, right) and meuia (honour). (I've done this in my early days a fair bit.) Nari si!

    I am indeed on LearnNa'vi quite a lot. For over 4 years now.
    I do know 'Oma Tirea. He has gone by several other names too.
    I would say kaltx, but unfortunately, he hasn't been around for at least 2 years straight now. I haven't seen him on the LN or any other forum for quite some time. I wonder every now and then where he went and why.
    Nprrte'! Please do 'bother' me with questions about the Na'vi language!

    hey, since you're so devoted to Na'vi language - am I right to believe that you're quite a lot on LearnNa'vi?
    and if so - do you know OmaTirea?
    and if so - can you say 'kaltxi' from my side?
    I Saw him in Seattle 2012, and his ikran, too - both are very nice!
    Thanks for your corrections by the way - now I know whom else to bother if I have questions about the Na'vi language!
