Mo'at trying to save grace speech
« on: January 02, 2010, 04:02:38 pm »
I've been trying to figure out what exactly Mo'at is saying here. I don't even remotely remember what the subtitles say so I just listened to it repeatedly and this is what I have come up with. There are a few things that I don't think make sense grammatically, but it's the only thing that I could come up with that resembled anything close to an understandable translation. I also didn't finish it. The part in the middle has just continued to stump me. I might try it again later, but any help you guys could offer would be great.

Na'vi: tìng mikyun ayoe rutxe ma nawm-a sa'nok, po-ri tirea-ti mung(ei)e mì nga,
ulte . . . . . na Na'viä hapxì fko.

Translation: please listen to us great mother, take her spirit into you, and _____ . . .
as a one of the Na'vi.

Again, that "Na'vi(y)ä" sound appears, but here I feel like it could mean Na'vi in a possessive form. I know the last bit seems all jumbled and confusing, but that's exactly what I hear when I listen to it, and it's the only translation that comes anywhere close to making any kind of sense. Anyone else had any luck with this? It's killing me.

to me, possessive here makse perfect sense. na'viyä hapxì - na'vi's part - part of the na'vi.
that is all i can say now, as i haven't given much thought to mo'at's speech...
...taj rad...

Well at least it's good to know I'm not alone thinking that :)

To fill in the blanks, it's and breathe her back to us as one of the people.

Wasn't there also something about "walking among the people" or am I hallucinating again?  Darn giant glowing mushrooms!  ;D

It may have been "and breathe her back to us, so she may walk as one of the people"

I think you got it. That sounds right.
