Body-related poetry, part 2
« on: March 27, 2010, 07:31:55 am »
Day Two of new body-related words.
As mentioned, I wanted to do something fun with the words given to me, so I wrote some lì'utseo.

Enjoy! :)

Krro lamu tuteo a nulnew ke tivaron

Aylapo perlltxe san po lu ke tstew sìk

Peyä tìkan ke sìltsan lu, ke terakuk ayswizaw

Krr a taron, lu nìawnomum tsnì tayätxaw luke tìtspang



Slä tsakrr a txep nerekx nìtxon ulte fko ayauti tserawm

Peyä ayvenzek tolikx, po ke tsolun fnivu

Frapol fpolak tìheranghamit krr a po srerew

Peyä ayvenu tswayon hu pamtseo

'Ekongìl fpxäkìm txe'lanit

Pamtseol tok reypayit

Ngäng teya säpi fa tìhangham

Mesopì fa tìrol alor

Nìngay, oel nivìn pot tengkrr a srerew frakrr sì 'awa trr

Interesting. Especially venzek, obviously from venu+zekwä, and reypay, life-water.

I'm pretty sure that, in Scotland at least, if your blood doesn't have as high an alcohol content as whiskey, there's something seriously wrong.

ma Mirri, irayo
Nga nìlaw omum futa fko sar lì'ut a san tsopì sìk na lì'fyafa lìnglìsì? Toitsefa fko pivlltxe san Tsopì fa tìrol alor sìk tup san Mesopì. Ke fpìl oe futa tuteyä lena'vi txokxìri ke omum ayoeng nìtam fte tsun awnga law livu teri tìsar fìlì'uyä slä na'viyä tìkusameri nì'ul tsunslu tìsar leholpxay a'aw
Are you shure that you use the word "tsopì" like in english. In German you would say "Tsopì fa tìrol alor" instead of "Mesopì". I don't think that we know enough about the Na'vi body to be able to be shure about the usage of this word but from the point of view of the Na'vi it would be more likely to use it in singular.

this poetry is not only beautiful but also usefull for learning

Talun tokxur lu mune san tsopì sìk tafral fìlì'u san dual-plural sìk. Mesopì.
Because the body has two "lung", the word is dual-plural. "Lungs"

That was my first thought, but feet aren't people.

They aren't, but the phrase sure seems like a metonymy, or a personification, that would call for nitram.

I imagine that things which actually are themselves happy, which laugh and dance, are nitram, and things which are enjoyable because they're peaceful are lefpom. Feet aren't either, so it's metaphor, and yeah, nitram would be the right word--for humans, that is. We can't know if either would make sense to the Na'vi. Probably not.
