Coolness. I was afraid that this thread becomes forever alone, hrh. ;D

Abot the pum word:
pum is a word that refers to the same "type" of something mentioned.

Examples:
Tsayayo lu ean, slä fìpum lu tun.
That bird is blue, but this one is red.
(Both are the same type: a bird. But they are not the same bird.)

Kelku ngeyä lu tsawl; pum oeyä lu hì’i.
Your house is large; mine is small.
Eltu si! Your house is large; my-one = mine is small.

As for tsnì, I think, one can drop tsnì, but I replaced it by a comma. Oe ätxäle si, nga ziva'u fìtseng..

Here she comes to save the day, Eana Unil is on her way... :P :P :P
No thread has to be forever alone when I'm around, hrh.

Lu oeru lahea tìpawm... :3
How'd you say "starry/starlit sky" ("Sternenhimmel") nìNa'vi?  ??? Using utu for this is out of the question, kefyak? And ngip a sanhìkip doesn't suffice, at least for me... Well, ngip a sanhìkip means space, the dark, endless space between the stars and everything else up there, not what we see from our little planet 'Rrta or what we would see from Pandora...

Maybe sanhìtxayo? Santxayo? Tantxayo? We have hertxayo (herwì + txayo)...

What about:
Taw a (ay)sanhìhu :-\

Eana Unil:
Hmmm... good idea... I'd like santaw... tantaw... something like that... I know, I know... no official or correct word... just sayin' that I'd like that :P

--- End quote ---
In fact, pum has not to do with possession - it was old mistake coming from kelku ngeyä tu apxa, pum oeyä lu hì'i.
Pum is repeater of previously mentioned word, to avoid repeating. In English, one works this way (not number!): Your house is big, my one is small.
