Can someone help me with my excluding/including pronouns?
« on: July 08, 2010, 06:55:33 pm »
I was reading through Na'vi in a Nutshell and I'm suck on that part.

What exactly do- moe, pxoe, and ayoe mean? Because 'oe' means 'I' so.... I mostly understand the other stuff but I'm stuck on that.  :-\

And the px, fx, tx- is that pronounced peh, feh, teh without out so much stress as normal English? ???

moe, pxoe and ayoe mean "we two, but not you", "we three, but not you" and "we four or more, but not you" respectively.

fx isn't in na'vi, did you mean kx? And they're not an unstressed plosive, if anything p, t and k are the unstressed version (English usually aspirates its plosives which means that there's a strong puff of air when you say them) whereas na'vi never does. If anything, px, tx and kx are more stressed. They're ejective consonants, have a look at this post for information on how to say them, or follow Frommer's advice and say a p, t or k as loudly as you can with your breath held.

Kx* sorry, computer fail.

Those links really helped, I feel much more confident when I can hear them. ;)

Irayo,
