Thanks for your help. I've figured part of the prayer I want : Eywa, help the child and her mother, help them be strong
Ma Eywa, srung si 'evengur sì peyä sa'nokur, srung si mefor fte livu txur
MOE, it rhymes!  ;D
(Btw, I often pray when driving in heavy traffic, and I say not only "Eywa" but also "Nawma Sa'nok" (which is Great Mother). You may use it too, Catherss, if you like.)

Haha, last few days I've had fun calling people at school moron in Na'vi (can't remember how you spelling it, 'Scoun'?

Funny because that had no idea what I was saying. Only one guy knows what I'm saying and I almost persuaded him to learn Na'vi with me but not quite there, I think.

This is the beginning of the FanFiction (I've wrote more, but I love this :P)


Sometimes I have these dreams of flying, flying over an ancient and forever forest.

Sometimes at night and the forest glowed, animals scuttled under me and birds would fly with me.

Only everyone has to wake up.

But I didn’t.

Because I wasn’t dreaming.


Comments? :)

It is spelled "skxawng" and pronounced "sk--ahwng".
Previously Ithisa Kīranem, Uniltìrantokx te Skxawng.

Name from my Sakaš conlang, from Sakasul Ältäbisäl Acarankïp

"First name" is Ačankif, not Eltabiš! In Na'vi, Atsankip.

Ah, I'll try to remember the spelling. I've been pronouncing it like it was in Avatar ('Neytiri calls me skxawng. It means moron.')

The thing to take away from this is that the kx in skxawng is a digraph (two letters representing one single 'letter' or sound), and represents one of the three ejective consonants in Na'vi, namely Kx, Px and Tx They are all similar in that they are pronounced like forceful versions of their parent letters, without a forceful exhalation of error. If you do it right, it will come out as a 'click' or 'pop'.

Spend some quality time with 'Na'vi in a Nutshell', especially the beginning sections, where the alphabet is introduced. Until you are aware of the sounds available in the language, this kind of thing will keep tripping you up. Na'vi is easy to learn as languages go, but it has some things in it that are very different than most common natural languages.

There are also some excellent videos floating around by Ftitapfi (not sure that is spelled right) that will help you with pronunciation.

Yawey ngahu!
