Constructing such things is a bit of a hobbytsyìp of mine, in any language (including Klingon). Here're some I have for Na'vi:

'Eoioa meoauniaeaeo oe 'ieia

Ikranay nìngay tswayayon ayfayfyavay ahay hayalo

Nì'i'a hì'ia tì'i'a a'a'aw 'i'a

Tse sre sìsrese'a tsre'i sre'it uo 'uo a äo 'ä'o

Payoang isn't on this thread?...Cheesy

Anyway, ma Sxkxawng, I'm loving these, especially the trilling practice one. I said that about 100+ times one night before bed. My mom came in and gave me the most surreal look. xD
