I think ftu would be more appropriate than ta, which is why I used it in my reply of "Spivä ftu 'awkx."

I'm updating Wikibooks as they come in, and Taronyu's updating the his dict. here.

Ah ha! I've been using Taronyu's dictionaries for the most part anyway (they seem to have the most words) so I will just start updating those regularly. I wasn't sure how often they're updated.

Irayo!

Ftu is a better choice.  I always seem to forget about it.

I'd done the same time, I started to use ta, but then realized that wasn't right and went back with ftu.

Hi, I am trying to do exactly this on my wiki user sub-pages.
This place is still in development, so there may be plenty of mainly earlier updates missing, also I am not finished with the format and appearance and since it is just compiled by myself, there may be some errors due to that.
As you can see it has a different approach then the Canon on the wiki.

I think this is particularly useful for those who had to shortly stop with learning and come back to it at a later time. Instead of clicking through all the update pages at the forum (or going through the dictionaries to sought out all unknown vocab), this gives a nice, succinct overview over new vocabulary - and it's good for cross-referencing. It's useful for learners not only having to rely on only one source.
Good job with that, ma okrìsti

Something I made...use it if you all would like. I know that "reypay" is blood, but to add it, I wrote it on/in the wrist. Clever, no?

No...?

OK.

EDIT: I created another one, with bigger words and utilized the dual affix on words that require it.

You check the pulse (flow of blood) through the wrist, right? What more could I do for "blood?" Apparently, Neytiri is too flawless to have any open wounds.

When you make a cross section of her head to show her brain, you could have some blood then. Or maybe her heart?  ;D

>.>; Oh, you're funny. Yes, there are some concepts for which one might need an ek srey. (Though, Eywa omum, not much.)

I made a picture with all of the words on it, for simple learning! :D

Quote from: Paul Frommer via e-mail
...the re'o chart is wonderful--aylrrtokit apxay ne meseyri zamolunge!

It seems important to call out the numbers of eyes, ears, lips, etc. when we talk about our body parts (or the Na'vi body parts) "generically" when first establishing the number (or if something else does not establish the number). Once established, then the singular forms can be used if that doesn't create some kind of ambiguity.

This chart is clearly a hit (at least with me and K. Pawl, but I know with others too), so in the future, you may want to help people learn their plurals better and become accustomed to THINKING this way at the same time by including the numbers of 'parts' when labeling them. You might want to do that in parentheses or using some other annotation. The most important thing is the base word/name for the body part, but referring to it *natively* is also a factor in fluency.

- menari
- meseyri
- memikyun
- sanhì (short (lenited) plural) of tanhì)...

In English we only call out the numbers (two lips) for special emphasis, but in Na'vi the numbers (up to a count of 3 of something) are built in to all plurals. And the number of eyes on a Na'vi is different than the number commonly found on the 'beasts'.

Make sense? It's just a suggestion to think about.  ;D

Irayo nìmun!

 I am striving to keep the dictionary download links on the main LN site updated daily.
