People speak Na'vi as slang 0_o
« on: February 06, 2012, 04:11:48 pm »
I've heard people use the term "nanging" before, but never made the link, but today someone in my form said "nang". When I asked them what they meant by it they said it was an encouraging word!! Just like the word nang nìNa'vi!! Could it be that our popularity is spreading?  ;D

Imagine it - Na'vi as the new youth culture  :D

Interesting. But they really don't know, that this is Na'vi word?

They're the kind of scary people who would beat me up if I spoke to them ;D
But I can get enjoyment just from hearing them say it hrh

Scary people speaking Na'vi. I wonder what this could mean? Is it possible this phrase arose through a mechanism that has nothing to do with Na'vi?

Yawey ngahu!

This has made me very curious indeed, ma ayeylan. It's possible that one of these "scary people" could be an Avatard. I find that around my area people are ashamed to be an Avatard because they're afraid that they'll be made fun of. I just tell them that instead of one person being made fun of, we should be a group of people being made fun of, so at least when we're teased, it's not just one of us being singled out. Plus, groups are always more intimidating to tease. That's not what we're talking about, though, I got distracted by my thoughts. My point is that someone could very well be a secret Avatard.  ;D
