The global Tsaheylu network would probably help to keep language from deviating too much, though there will still probably be the odd bit of regional slang (wou being a prime example)
I remember Kewnya Txamew'itan thought precisely this, and I do too, although a little more loosely.  I imagine the Na'vi have various dialects and slang/idioms per clan, but only the one language we know.  Plus, it's not like we need some more leNa'vitsyìp languages to overwork Frommer ::)

Paul said in his OCH talk that dialects may be possible, but no new languages were planned at this point. Of course Cameron may decide tomorrow that he wants one...

I sure hope Cameron decides against a new language altogether.  Honestly, I would love the prospect of dialects.  I mean, it tends to be a pain when learning the language, but knowing them is always a good thing. ;)

I'm sure you'd make quite the candidate, but I wouldn't be surprised if he did need another language, he'd consult Frommer for a dependable person to hire for that job.  Of course, he knows a few of us here... ;)

Paul might well recommend Wm if it came to that. I know Wm blows my socks off at this stuff and I don't even know enough about linguistics to be entitled to an opinion to begin with. :)

Hmm... nìNa'vitsyìp... ::)

I wonder how related it would be to the original Na'vi, similar to how (say) Romance or Germanic languages are related....
