Over, Under, and Quickly

I contacted Karyu Pawl about these, some time ago, and the answers to these questions have come back positive. :D

Quote
Äo can definitely mean either 'under' or 'below'; io can mean either 'over' or 'above'; nìwin can mean either 'fast' or 'quickly.' The example sentences you gave are fine.

Ralu tolìran äo vul apxa.
Ralu walked under the large branch.

Oe tswayon io AyVitrayä Ramunong.
I fly over the Tree of Souls

Edit: Pawl also said that he would contact Markì with this information, so that's already done. :)

I agree. But it’s good to have confirmation. :D

This is very helpful.  Thanks to Alyara/LEP for submitting and getting a clarification.

What this also validates, is that Na'vi adpositions have the usage flexibility for describing both static and dynamic (moving) positions. 
This makes sense, but now it's confirmed.
