Irayo friend. What does rednilec mean? I can't seem to find it anywhere in the lex...

Irayo ma Roiki, irayo.. ??

Irayo means thank you.
Ma is a form of title, i guess..
Roiki is his name :)
Oh, I didn't know that was your name! I really need to pay attention more...


Well.. His name does sound a bit Na'vi :-D

Hopefully this helps you in your pursuit.

The way I started is trying to work out how to pronounce the vowels, consonants, etc.

Back to Kindergarten type stuff.

Once you're pretty confident about your pronounciations then try reading the words, you'll notice heaps of sounds that get to sound pretty familiar after a while and the joining words will make a bit more sense.

After that play with some sentences, get people to correct you and you're well on your way to understanding how the language works!

Reading / Saying is much easier than writing / composing any language, so start there.


:)


Most of all nume nìltsan (learn well), and remember that everyone learns at their own pace.

Eywa ngahu ma Rednilec.

Wow.. Thank you SOOOOO much.. I couldn't find a word in Na'vi that describes my appreciation.. This was exactly what I was looking for..

I just made this guideline(?) for my process:


I'll start with number 1 and 2 at the same time. When I've learnt the alphabet, I'll proceed with number 2, till I feel ready to move on.


1: Learn to pronounce and memorize the alphabet.

2: Learn 8 random words every 3rd day. Picked from different categories.
 - How to pronounce it.
 - How to write it (with no 'cheating').
 - Be comfortable with it.
 - Maybe use it in everyday life.

3: Make easy sentences when I've got enough words.

4: Learn grammar and rules for making a correct sentence in Na'vi.


I'm using a notebook, to write down my progress. That way i wont lose a day, or forget what I learned before.
When I have to write something down many times, I'll use a blank sheet of paper.
I also write down how to pronounce the word, so I wont doubt it..

And of cause I'll use various videos, articles and posts in here in my learning process...

Does this sound like a good idea? And would you use it?

I can't believe I am actually learning a new language. I have found that from just reading the forums, I have already picked up a few words. I guess now that I have the pronunciation down a little, (reading peoples posts) I just need to know what the words mean. Like when a child grows up, he hears the words from the people around him but doesn't know what they mean until later. I also really need to learn the grammer. Irayo, Eywa ngahu.
"meoauniaea" (meh-oh-ah-oo-nee-ah-eh-ah). "Don't ask me what it means - I haven't assigned a meaning yet. But I love the word!" Frommer said.

For a person who learns best by listening, would finding videos be best? I will look at the videos here,but i would love to hear more of the words ??? :-\

This is a hard language to learn and the links and methoods are very helpful to a beginner like me.
Irayo, Eywa
