Charge (verb)
« on: May 04, 2010, 05:38:45 pm »
As obvious as it is, we now have a canon verb for this:

Kxll si - charge (verb)

Thank you, ma Ftiafpi. :)

Don’t forget the idiomatic expression ’uo ’ok tseyä lu oer »I remember something«, or is that too uncertain as of yet?

It’s discussed here

Next, we will need terms for positive, negative, volt, ampere, ohm, watt. And for Pandora, superconducting.

Next, I'll be figuring out a way to express Ohm's law in Na`vi.....

And, you might hear Na`vi women use this term when they get a chance to go shopping.... ;)

We can't have it be «Enertsyayzer» because then we'd need a word for "rabbit" and a color for "pink" too. Of course, we do already have «nìlkeftang» AND «au» AND «fnelew a tsun menariru tìhawnu sivi tsawkeyä atanwä».... Hmmm.... Maybe I should reconsider...

Kaltxì ma OChristi si wm.ennis,

As you are adding words to the Vocabulary page, would it be possible to include the source reference (i.e. http://thereadinginpublicproject.blogspot.com/2010/05/paul-frommer.html) for kxll and kxll si?

I also noticed (with the help of a source parser that I wrote) some minor formatting incoherences :
- sevin : the clause "in contrast..." is between () instead of []
- Some references miss the surrounding parentheses :
    [[Canon#Atan Is Illumination...]]

Um.  It's a wiki.  Once you have an account, you can fix these things, too.  There isn't some special club membership required to tidy up that list.  :)
