Little confirmation on takuk
« on: March 21, 2017, 01:28:21 pm »
I had this question in this thread, namely if takuk could be used for “strike” in the sense of “hit, beat, slap” because in German the meaning can be different.

I decided to ask K. Pawl about it and I got this response:


Quote from: K. Pawl, 21 March 2017
Good question! I wasn't aware of the difference in German. I only knew "treffen" in the sense of "meet." I guess the underlying idea is that if you strike a target, you're connecting with it, or in effect meeting it. Very understandable.

In Na'vi, though, we CAN use takuk in the broader sense of "beat," "slap," or "strike," as you've indicated. The underlying idea is more like the English use of "strike," where you physically hit something with force. So you could say, for example, "Oeti takuk ra'ä!" (I hope you never have to say that!)

There you go, folks :D

I guess a small correction in the dictionary is in order ;)
