Ordinal zam, vozam and zazam

Vawmataw:
Following a discussion on the Kelutral.org server, I dared to ask Karyu Pawl what might be the ordinal form of zam (64).


--- Quote ---Kaltxì ma Karyu Pawl,

Someone has asked today about the ordinal form of zam. I can't find anything, but it's possible that I overlooked something since this community has 11 years of history.

Txawey and I guess that it could be zave given that the m disappears in numbers like zamun, zapey and zasìng (which obviously become zamuve, zapeyve and zasìve). That would be a logical path to follow. Is our guess correct? The question also includes its derivatives vozam and zazam.

I can post the answer on the LearnNa'vi forum unless you plan to include it in a future post.

Irayo nìli!

Ngaru tìyawr. It's zave. I've attached a chart with the cardinal and ordinal forms of the numbers. Feel free to post the answer; I'll try to remember to include it in my next blog post as well.

Hope your year is off to a decent start. Here in Los Angeles, things are finally looking up, and I'll be getting back to Na'vi soon. 😊

Makto zong, ma 'eylan!

Eltur tìtxen si... thanks for sharing.

Tìtstewan:
Why sorry, ma Vawmataw? ;D

I see I'll need to update my number system files which will be done on the weekend. (At least, if my time permits.) :)

Plumps:
Very interesting and informative indeed!

Thanks for letting us know, ma Vawmie.
