The Wiki Canon & Corpus

Taronyu:
Kaltxì ma frapo,

There is an amazing resource that I don't think is getting the attention it deserves. This subforum here is instrumental in hashing out what Frommer means from his messages, but isn't really suitable when trying to find that exact linguistic example, or trying to remember what Frommer said about "uvan si". But there is a place for that sort of search - the wiki. Here are the pages I think are most useful:


* The Wiki Main Page - The Central Hub, as it were.
* The Corpus - Where all official Frommerian updates should go.
* The Canon - Where all emails from Frommer are placed. This is where most of the stuff on this board has gone, or should go.
* The More Recent Canon - From March to June. I don't know why these are split up, but this is just as useful as the above one.
* Lines from Avatar - For when you can't figure it out.
* Vocabulary - This is a great resource. I've found words in here that weren't in my dictionary, and it has examples for many of the words - which I don't.
There's another page worth mentioning: the Help Wanted page. The wiki is a user-changed system - You can go on right now and delete everything, you have that sort of power (don't). What you can do to be constructive is to look around here, and every time that you see a new post, put it in the wiki. I use this as my definitive guide to how to speak Na'vi - if everything we knew was in here, we could all use it to improve ourselves.

I just wanted to point this out. Seriously, the wiki is awesome: sar fkot!

So, yeah.
The splitting up of the Canon is a little odd, the way it is right now.
I would do
1. an entry page and put everything on sub-pages with a little navigation between them, or
2. everything on one page, which will get a confusing (too).
Either way, I think they need a kind of reformatting, maybe even a kind of index.

The Movie Lines, are nice, I wanted to gloss them, but I was lazy lately, therefore I have not done much for a while. There section with "Attack on Hometree" is somehow incorrect, probably will do this today.

» This is how far I came. :)

Yeah, the split of the canon pages is because the main one was getting too huge — huge enough for the Wiki software to complain (the same is currently true of the Vocabulary as well).  A reorg of that might be nice, but it would also break a zillion links throughout the rest of the wiki, since we often reference the canon and corpus items for examples.

If Canon gets moved to let us say Canon/2010/December-'09-Februar the links can easily altered to work again.
There are some pages affected, but not that much.

K.  I just went onto the wiki and added the e-mail convo i'd had with Karyu Pawl.  I hope the formatting and all was right =\  Sorry i didn't spend too much time making it prettified; got my master's thesis defense in a few hours (eek!).
