Na'vi is a relatively new language, so things are constantly changing. While it was spelled "Tsahaylu" in the theatrical release, it is now spelled "Tsaheylu" in the DVD/Blu-ray release. Also, last I checked, LearnNavi.org has it spelled "Tsahaylu" in their vocabulary.

ummm ... I guess it's spelled tsahEylu, cuz Na'vi isn't based in english pronounciation ... so we got to know they way it's pronounced thanks to Neytiri and she clearly said, "Tsaheylu"

We spell it Tsahaylu because its spelled that way in the Survival Guide.....which to me makes that spelling the correct spelling.

What dictionary do you use? Because the only official dictionary I know of is the Survival Guide....and maybe you need to read that?
Ps the Na'vi language doesn't follow our rules for all we know something coule be spelled Txanten and be pronounced "Santen" or something crazy XD Spelling and pronounciation have nothing to do with eachother.

And am I the only one who noticed that we pronounce Hay and Hey the same way? Just a thought.
Also why in the world would an A make an I sound? Why would it be Ah-high-lu? We never pronounce an A as an I.

Indeed, it's really strange but at the same time is really funny to learn

I think you've sorted that out now, but just for your knowing, the word at first was spelled tsahAylu, so this is why it's like that in the "survial guide", but now it has changed to tsahEylu. It's nomal, for example words like kxener and kì'ong which at first were some fruits or somethin',were changed to smoke and slow respectively.
