Question Need some help please



Am wanting to know how to say-"Have a good time" in Na'vi when someone tells me they are going to a neat event.

also is Na'vetri a good source for learning Na'vi. I have been find mistakes there, such as

Pefya nga fpil. Which I thinks should be Pehem nga fpil....
What do you think?

Irayo ma oeya 'eylan....

Naviteri is the official Blog of Karyu Pawl himself, and even though he's just a human being like all of us (which means he does mistakes for sure now and then, too) everything which is posted at Naviteri by him is official canon and thus correct. If there was a typo or something like that, the readers will tell Karyu Pawl and he'll correct it.

So, if Frommer says that "Pefya nga fpl" is correct, it is correct.

Quote from Naviteri:
(Notice that in Na’vi you actually say, “How do you think?” This is the case in many earth languages, although not in English.)
"Pehem nga fpl" would mean "which/what action do you think" and would make no sense at all, at least not to me (pehem = kempe, kem = action/activity), because you don't think actions, you think thoughts. So if you'd have said "pefplfya/pesfpl nga fpl" it would have made more sense but would still not be official canon. ^^

How to say "have a good time"? Good question. Just woke up and have no clue (yet), hehe.

Late to say what's been said. How do you think is perfectly acceptable for What do you think, imo. I have been saying Pefya nga fpl long before it was official.

I might add that I would say

Livu ngaru t'o'

Or something. Which means Have fun. There are most likely other ways to say this also.

For example: livu ngaru krr a'o'. Probably the closest translation.

Indeed.

I'd probably go with that for "have a good time" and my version for "have fun".

Hmm....wouldn't "alo" work better here? Because like...when we say 'have a fun time' we're referring to a specific instance not 'time' as in the temporal sense. If that makes sense...lol.
