Default Conlang Short Video - Includes Dr Paul Frommer

Not sure if this has been posted elsewhere or is the right place to post it, but I got a tweet with a link to this interesting video about language creation for film and TV. It includes Dr Frommer and the 'Ikran-eyed' amongst you might see the portrait on Paul that we gave him in 2014 during the AvatarMeet. Here's the link:

Thank you for sharing ,, The thing I find most interesting about the Na'vi language is its "structure " and presentation of thought ,, Na'vi is by example a Very internal expressive, heartfelt language, and is very "we" ethos orientated as well as strongly reflects this through its methods of "lingual expression" if one takes a look at the "expression structure for instance real world "Tsalagi" (Cherokee) language there originally was no word for "lie or lying" in its lingual struture
Na'vi reflects this ,, the core recognition of ones kin "seen" at a spiritual level as ones "brothers and sisters" is there as well,, its probably off topic to reflect too deeply on real world native languages here but one might find the Iroquoi word "Orenda" and its core meaning in a persons expression structure quite "interesting" it speaks of a "place" of expression not present in our root languages
