I would too have thought that ngaytxoa would be an interj. as well but whatever. As far as I know a conversational item is one that doesn't fit in any other linguistic category. Things like "hmmm", "gahhh", "yarrrr" etc. would be conversational items.

We also have KEFTXO! ("How sad!" :'( ) marked from him as "CONVersational" as of today.

Thanks, ma Ftiafpi for the clarification.

In your phrase, Poan 'oleko hu kxll... I think hu is used for accompaniment only. Tìkenong: Eywa ngahu. I would use fa instead.

Otherwise, this is great! It's neat to be able to "see" the movie described in Na'vi. I think I remember hearing this dialogue during the fight just like how you describe it in your narrative. Now I'm even more anxious for Amazon to gimme my dvd so I can watch it over and over and over...

You're right, that should probably be fa. Fixed.

I took a few liberties with the action so as to get all the words in but I tried to stay true to the movie.

Any idea if any of these is predominately spoken by males or females? I think that'd be interesting. We've so far had no division.

The questions to Cameron touched on subjects that would DRIVE this. The fact that Mo'at is so powerful and the feature of the society that Na'vi women provide for the clan by hunting equally alongside men would lead me to believe that the distinction *MIGHT* be less pronounced than in other cultures. The pronouns don't even mark gender by default. That's not to say that I feel there would be none.

I kind of like that the language is completely oblivious to gender and the movie seems to reflect that. It's quite nice.
