Default Frommer on Na'vi language at Pandora-The World of Avatar

A Conversation with Dr. Paul Frommer, Creator of the Na'vi Language from Avatar | The Disney Blog

Interesting look at the work Paul Frommer did to get the cast members speaking na'vi at the park. Also we now have a na'vi word for restroom.

Hi Exoblade!

Thanks for posting the link

I didn't notice the word for restroom being brought up in there. I knew though that there has been a phrase for this since this April 2013 post on Frommer's blog “Where’s the bathroom?” and other useful things | Na'viteri.org However, the name for an actual place one releases waste (fng'tseng) I did not see anywhere until I saw it on one of the cards for the translator device sold at the World of Pandora in Disney Animal Kingdom.

I'm happy that this board sees some life again

cheers

No problem, I came across it on the subreddit and though people hear might want to hear about this. Find new content is the best way to encourage discussion.

I checked the online dictionary and they said the word was added in 2016 but its still interesting.

I wonder if the Na'vi have slang for that; English speakers call it the can, pot, toilet, bathroom, washroom, head, commode, loo, throne, outhouse, crapper...

It's very likely that there is an entire huge slang register. We just haven't got around to building the original / standard register yet. I suspect in due time we may start working on the colloquial style Na'vi but probably not for a few years.
