Cool Na'vi verb and noun questions


By going with Steven Lang's Na'vi Ipod lessons the Na'vi have no verb for Love.
Though I noticed in The Na'vi Dictionary there is another word for love besides Yawne. Tiyawn. Now how would you use this word in a sentence.
And when? I know yawnetu is loved one but that is all I can find on this subject. Also is there anyway one can express themselves in a greater sense to a mate than you are beloved to me?
I would apreciate any help I can get on this.

Nga yawne lu oer = I love you
L'fyari leNa'vi oel 'efu ngey tyawnit = I feel your love for the Na'vi language
Yawn(e)tu = loved one

Tyawn is always a noun. Love as an abstract noun, idea, concept.
Yawne is adjective beloved, loved.

Indeed there is no verb "to love" instead you say "X is beloved to Y" = "X yawne lu Yru"

-----------------------------------------------------------
However, strangely enough, there IS a verb to hate: ve'k.

Xl ve'k Yti = X hates Y

Oel ve'k ngati = I hate you
tve'k = n. hatred

Hopefully this has has been helpful
