By that measure, a passionate conversation is a more basic concept in Na'vi than it is in English.  (5 syllables vs 6)

Passionate chat, then.

(how do you get 6 syllables out of the English one? pas-sion-ate con-ver-sa-tion is 7)

Well, you probably use passionate conversations often, but not "passionate conversation".  ;D
