(1/1)

Eltu Lefngap Makto:
Non iam Latine loqueris (semper linguam Graecam potius) sed velim quaeras grege hominum.
SpoilerI no longer speak Latin (I've always preferred Greek) but I wanted to ask this group of people

Quomodo Latina Graecaque Na'vique "genitive"s diversus?
SpoilerHow are the Latin, Greek and Na'vi genitive different?


* Attributive Genitive - (Semitic origin) y-ful x
* Possessive Genitive - x belongs to y - super common in Na'vi
* Descriptive Genitive - x characterized by y
* Partitive Genitive - x is part of y - Na'vi uses "ta"?
* Material Genitive - x is made of y, or x contains y
* Subjective Genitive - x is produced by y.  - Ex. Lì'fyari leNa'vi oel 'efu ayngeyä tìyawnit = I feel that you love the Na'vi language.
* Objective Genitive - x is directed toward y
* Plenary Genitive - both objective and subjective
* Genitive Absolute (Ablative Absolute) - while?, topical?
* Ablative Genitive - x stems from y
* Genitive of Time - during x - Could be -o but instead, fìtrrä ftxozäri
* Adpositional Genitive - x, which is y
* Descriptive Genitive - x is characterized by y
* Genitive of Comparison - than x

I think it is possible, Ex. naer payä - a dink (made of) water
