We have our hands full already with learning Na'vi as it is. I highly doubt we'll be learning a new language. However, it would be interesting to see if other dialects of Na'vi exist. Every language has regional dialects. Given the fact that there are at least 15 other clans out there, i wouldn't be surprised if various local dialects exist.

Its my understanding that dialects in free word order languages involve standard word order patterns for different areas.  But I'm no linguist and could very well be wrong.

Though I also seem to recall the good Doctor mentioning something with a smile about dialects in an interview.  ;)

P.S. Ma Paul Frommer, if you read this, I don't mean them to give you extra work, I rather only have one alien language that is fully worked out than two with a smaller vocabulary.  ;)

I can't imagine how many emails he gets a day. 100? 200?! :o

I don't want a new language.
I think they shall use Na'vi as the language, maybe with another dialect, but still Na'vi as the main language!

Na'vi is the best language!

Kìyevame :)

I agree  ;D
we don't need a new language, we're all still learning this one, and having another language to learn would be just too much...

Regional accents anyone?

Sorry, I had an image of a Na'Vi speaking with a Devon accent.

I really can't see another language. One is enough, but Cameron might collaborate with Frommer on a different VERSION of Na'vi for the other moon, if thats the way they choose to go, though I highly doubt they will.

Every language has regional dialects. Given the fact that there are at least 15 other clans out there, i wouldn't be surprised if various local dialects exist.

Qauritch says there are around 2,000 Na'vi at the tree of souls, within a week there could be 20,000.
Jake says 2,000 warriors = 15 clans so 20,000 = 150 clans!


Sorry, I had an image of a Na'Vi speaking with a Devon accent.
LOL! ;D Ur ma El Jacko, ur

Don't think so.
Cameron says Avatar2 will reuse a lot of the existing cgi ground work, creature design, texture maps etc. to save money. So Pandora based sequel then. Work was completed for 2154 Earth too, but it ended up on the editing room floor so Earth scenes are also possible.

Would've used my local accent, but for some strange reason North Worcestershire is the only place in the UK with no accent whatsoever.

Sorry for the necropost, but I sincerely hope he doesn't come up with another language, one is enough for a franchise.

So do I, but who knows, just when you think you know a person as a director, they do something unexpected, like make a new language for a franchise. LOL

Well if rumors are true about what he's done to the rerelease (check the avatar 2 board I think) than that is indeed the case. Can't say I'm completely happy with what he's planning.
