Default Lesson 14 - Demonstratives, Or "This, That".

Sometimes you might want to refer something as "this" or "that".

That cat is walking - a cat that is not nearby, for example you're pointing your finger at it
This cat is walking - a cat that is nearby (for example on your couch or something, you look at it)
Now, let's do that in Na'vi.

tsa- - That
f- - This

tsatute siltsan lu
tsa-tute siltsan lu
That person is nice

Remember the last adjective lesson? If not you should check it out, it's pretty useful

fkran ngim lu
f-ikran ngim lu
This Ikran is long

We got rid of an "i" in Ikran, because, as I've mentioned in other lessons, when we add a prefix, or a suffix, we get rid of the "similar vowels" that are next to each other. That way, instead of fikran, we get rid of the similar "i", and get fkran

Easy one
