Stxo a vay set lu ke awnomum

Fwäkì, yayo, zize’ a pxeswiräri mepo yaìlä twsayon ulte mepo nì’aw lu hì’ang. Rìk, prrwll, spxam a pxesat run fkol sìn utral ulte lu ’u a’aw a lu hapxì utralä ulte ’u a’aw keng ke lu ’ewll angay. Peseng tsun rivun fkol payoangit? ’U a’aw law lu nìwotx. Mì satseng layu pay pxel payfya fu txampay nìteng.


Quote from: Paul Frommer
fwä mantis (n.)
’ang insect (n.)
payoang fish (n.)
yayo bird (n.)
zize’ hellfire wasp (n.)
prrwll moss (n.)
rìk leaf (n.)
spxam fungus (n.)
’ewll plant (n.)

Correction: The glottal stop in hì’ang is on the ’ANG, but the stress is on the . Now correct above too.

Mantis is cool. I wonder if it has the greek sense as well - eh, annis?

As for birds - I thought we were fairly certain that there are no birds on Pandora. Does PF know something that we don't?

Thanks for sharing, ma Prrton. :)

Are the texts that are placed along the new vocabulary recently from all of you or Frommer's?

ioang - payoang - hì'ang => is there a new root there with which we could do something? *(o)ang = animal of some kind?


As for birds - I thought we were fairly certain that there are no birds on Pandora. Does PF know something that we don't?

Well, the Ikran lays eggs, flies and has an inner bone structure (as opposed to the chitin skeleton of an insect) - doesn't that count as a bird?
What about the smaller ones that Jake and Norm see on their first flight over the water?

I am thinking that "ioang" is the root for all of the oang words, just shortened.

Hellfire wasp...never saw that one before. Quite a strange-looking bug.

Do you think yayo is a contraction of ya-ioang as well, ma smuk?

Wow, I didn't see that. Very possibly! If so, maybe it does include banshees and stingbats - and maybe wasps too.
