Can some one translate this?


"find, finding, found"
It's being used as an example of Na'vi, as a direct comparison with "find, finding, found" in English. I got as far as 'run, runsi, '

If I understand your idea, I would say:

"run, rerun, rolun"

It is specifically relating to a lost item (a bag), if that's relevant.

OK, so I can't find a word, I'm sure (Sure-ish) it used to be in the dictionary, but I can't find it now.


What is the Na'vi word for the spiral stairs structure in home tree?

Do I remember correctly, that there is/was a pace of furniture (for want of a better description) that the Na'vi used to store their bow, arrows, and other personal possessions? If so, can anyone tell me what it is called? Or did I simply imagine it?
