something weird from the movie
« on: July 28, 2011, 06:40:03 am »
when Jake first comes to Hometree and Neytiri talks to Eytukan she says oel pot tpìmìyang, tsakrr za'u aungia ta Eywa, and the subtitles say "I was going to kill him....".
so what the heck is that infix cluster "ìmìy" (ìm+ìy) that means "was going to"????
