  Kaltxì, everyone, I’m new to this site. I’ve been practicing for a few weeks on the language Na’vi and my thanks go to Ftiafpi and the Learn Navi site, and the dictionary. This is my paraghraph in the Na’vi language (may be mistakes) I added this to test you guys and girls in a translation to help you learn the language faster, have fun!

Thanks for your well written Na'vi and I'm glad we could help you learn and enjoy this language as much as I have. Glad to see you joining the forums, feel free to ask any questions you may have.

Kìyevame ma 'eylan!

I've added the pronunciation guides to a new YouTube channel I've created for lì'fya leNa'vi: http://www.youtube.com/user/Ftiafpi

The new links are in the updated original post of this topic.

Something I just noticed is that you tend to pronounce words that end in an "e" with an "ey" sound.

Yeah, it's a bad habit of mine. I've more or less fixed it but these were made a few months ago when I hadn't. It's close enough to correct though that I just say do as I say not as I do. When I make more pronunciation guides I will, of course, correct this.

Ok, after watched this video I realized that I nearly pronounced every word wrong. So I'll start again from zero and forget what I did the last two weeks, I think...Thanks for showing me that I can't speak Na'vi!  ;)
Oe lu Kxeyo—

—pa'liyä maktoyu.

Actually, that would be an interesting thought; if gay Na'vi would actually mate, or just run off in the bushes for a little bum-fun!

Alt+132 (on the number pad) = ä

Also there's a button in the forum toolbar that makes one for you.
