I'm not good about the topical suffix, so feel free to correct me.

All you need to know is that it is never needed and almost always wrong.

As for IMO, it would really depend on whether it is before or after the sentence it describes.

If after then it should be a Fì'ut Oel Fpìl. If before then it should be Oel Fpìl Futa.

So we get FOF and OFF.



As for the others:

WTF ~ Peu/hem/fo Fì'u/kem/po Lu Pak = PFLP

OMG = Fpi Eywa = FE

LOL = HeRangHang = HRH (Frommerian) Cheesy

LMAO = idiomatic, could translate using nìtxan to get HeRangHang Nìtxan = HRHN

FTW = A Fl<iv>(<ei>)ä = AF

FML ~ Pxasik Tìreyur Oeyä (dodgy) = PTO (you could add a pak in for more anger to get PTOP).



HTH = Sìlpey Oe Tsnì Fì'u Srung Si (correction of Aysyal's) which would be a bit long but SOTFSS. I'd probably just do Fì'u Srung S<iv>i (FSS)

HAND = l<iv>u ngar(u) sìltsan-a trr (correction to Aysyal's, the verb goes first in these constructions) which would be LNST. I might use Ngaru Fpom L<iv>u (NFL) though instead.

TYVM ~ ISONN

TMI -> FH?



New ones:

AFAIK ~ Fa Fì'u a Oe Omum = FFOO or Oe Omum a Fì'ufa = OOF

IAMNAL ~ Oe-l Lì'fya-t(i) Ke Ftia = OLKF or Oe-l Lì'fya-t(i) ke Ftia = OLF

ASAP = 'awvea Krr a Fko Tsun = 'KFT

BTW = tse = tse

FAQ = Tìpawm a Fko Pawm Nìpxìm = TFPN

FYI = Fte Nga Omum = FNO

IIRC = Txo Oe Zerok Nìeyawr = TOZN

IRL = Mì Hifkey = MH

ORLY? (from a discussion IRL with sezawte) = Nìngay Srak? or Kifkeyä Srak? so NS or KS

NRN = Ke Zene 'iveyng = KZ'

TBH = TìPuslltxe Nìngay = TPN

K = tam

SCNR = Ngaytxoa, ke Tsolun Ftäpivang = NTF

IAN (already Nìna'vi for you).




FSS.

"For Queen and Country"

Na'vi  society is a patriarchy, the clan leader, olo'eyktan, is a male.
The female counterpart is Tsahìk, the spiritual leader, but I don't think that's what you had in mind!
(even if brit monarchs, king or queen regardless, are also high priest / priestess of the 'church of england')

OK, so the above is fairly factual, what follows is total guesswork by a skawng who's cup is empty.

olo'eyktan is a male, and ends with -an, is this the suffix -an, showing that this is a male clan leader?
If this is correct then changing this to the female suffix would give olo'eykte (Queen)
The eastern sea clan seemed to have a female leader (but she might be tsahìk)
So, how about ...

Olo'eykte kllpxìltu si fpi.

Anyone with a cup more full than mine, can you show if / where this is wrong, any feed back welcome.


LOL ~ Lu Oeru Lrrtok = LOL


Awesome!

If the -an in eyktan were the male suffix, that would leave a root of 'eykt', would it not? It was my understanding that clusters can only occur syllable-initial. Possibly you might be able to get the meaning you suggest by making it olo'eyktane, but I'd feel very uneasy about using such a construction.

I think your probably right. Irayo.

My understanding of linguistics is way too limited for me to try dissecting it properly, it was just a guess by a skawng who's cup is empty.

Is the sentence otherwise correct?

I'd go with Fpi Olo'eyktan Kllpxìltusì = FOS.

It's possible that olo'eyktan is actually a contraction of olo'eyktuan in which case, if talking about a queen not a king, olo'eyktue or olo'eykte would be ok.

txim means "butt".
Tsahey is an expression like "Crap!"
pxasìk means "screw this!"
sìltsan Eywa means "good god"
Time'em sin 'Rrta means "peace on Earth"

Not exactly what you were looking for, but hope this helps, ulte Eywa ngahu.
