Ayohel ayngengati kamuye, frapoya, ulte ayoheru fmawn luyu! *


Our great Karyu Pawl is going to volunteer his time for a

Na’vi Language Workshop

to happen this year the first weekend in October! This workshop will allow us to work with him, in person, for a few days to better understand and flesh out some aspects of the language.

The history: a while back, Karyu Pawl expressed interest in getting some of the most advanced Na’vi speakers in one place for a workshop to discuss and learn more about the language. This workshop would allow us to work with Dr. Frommer over the course of a couple days to learn the language more completely, identify points that need to be expanded, and address some of the prominent outstanding questions about the language. This knowledge would be documented by the attendees of the workshop and brought back to the community for the benefit of everyone. Essentially, this is a “teach the teachers” workshop.

The event will take place in California at a member’s private residence over the course of October 1st, 2nd and 3rd. We’ll have roughly 15 members coming from all across America and even overseas. Additionally, a phone conference line will be set up for a couple of hours during one of the days so some of our more linguistically engaged members overseas who couldn’t travel could participate for one of the days of the workshop. Karyu Pawl is very excited for this as I hope we all can be. His willingness to travel several hundred miles for this meeting at his own expense is a good indication of Karyu Pawl’s commitment to this language and this community and we can’t thank him enough.

Now, unfortunately, we have some bad news regarding the workshop but we want to stress this to avoid any hurt feelings.

At Dr. Frommer’s request and for the sheer logistics of the workshop we had to limit the number of people who could attend. Given the scope of our community we had a hard choice on how to come up with a fair way by which we could decide who should be invited as well as whether the planning should be public or not and how the event should be coordinated and announced.

The moderators of the website decided that the fairest system would be a panel composed of several founding members of the website that would nominate potential members to be included. We nominated the members who were either the most active in the language and forums or who we felt were the most advanced with the language and would benefit the most from this workshop. Once ordered, we messaged the members and asked if they were interested and able to commit the time and to travel to the workshop. If a member declined then they were given the chance to nominate someone in their place or the next person in line was then asked, and so on until all the spots were filled.

Now, we understand that there may be some hurt feelings for those who were not invited. Ayoheru txoa livuyu. We deeply apologize. Limiting the number of participants for this particular meeting was at Paul’s request and simply based on the practicality of accommodating the group at the available venue. We would have loved to have everyone who wanted to come be able to join us but that simply is not feasible this time. This is not intended to be a purely social event. The idea here is to teach the teachers in our community and the original planners coordinated carefully with Karyu Pawl about his ideas on how to approach that goal.

However, if you still feel some injustice has been done to the community, please contact me or one of our administrators in private. Keep in mind, this is unlikely to be the only time Karyu Pawl meets with members of the community. We fully intend to try to continue to work with him so that in the future there will be more broadly open opportunities for our members to meet with him in person.

Do not worry though, there will be pictures, updates, videos, and more from this event. Everyone who is a part of our great community will have the chance to learn from the results of the meeting and thereby benefit greatly. We can’t give enough thanks to Karyu Pawl for donating his valuable time for this workshop, nor to the organizers of the workshop, to the administrators of LearnNa’vi.org, and to you, the members of LearnNa’vi.org; without whom this could have never happened nor could this language have attained such success.

Your constructive comments and questions are welcome here below, and if you have Na’vi language-specific topics that you still feel need answers, please make sure that they are captured in the Language Updates section in Combining our Efforts II. Please read through all of the posted themes and questions before adding more. Your question may already be slated in the mix. Approximately 10 days from now we (ALL OF US in the community) will be voting on which are the most important to the language overall to help Karyu Pawl prioritize how he handles getting them addressed.

In closing, thank you to everyone at LearnNa’vi.org, everyone who is learning Na’vi or has shown support for us, and especially to Dr. Paul Frommer and James Cameron, without whom this great language and great movie could never have even existed.

Not likely due to the fact that there will be extremely limited internet bandwidth at the location of the workshop.
