impenetrable? By that you mean solid as in very good and stable, right?


--- Quote ---Where are all the words like 'patientive', 'deixis', 'ellision' (of which there is a really good example of) and other such proper words ;)

--- End quote ---

The entire point of this blog is to make the language accessible to anyone and everyone, without needing to learn a whole other language (Linguistese) before even being able to learn Na'vi. So, yeah, those terms are omitted because quite frankly, they just get in the way for beginners with no linguistic background. Hey, those words are great for linguistics professors and university linguistic majors. :D but for the average Joe/Jane, I want to be super simple in teaching because it's very possible to teach a language without using the intensely complicated language of a linguistics researcher. :D


--- Quote ---Seriously, this is great! What really makes a big difference here is the use of color codes for different grammatical functions. You also note at the beginning (end??) of the lessons that repetition is key to learning Na'vi. This is especially true of this method.

:D righto.


--- Quote ---But in any case, this is very useful, and I will recommend it where appropriate!

Where the freak was this when I started learning?! *mock anger*

*points to lurking newbies* YOU THERE!  YEAH, YOU!  Pay attention to this!  Read it, learn it, love it.

Ma Tirea Aean,
  I just found out about Tirea.skxawng.lu, jumped over there, and got lesson seven. Is there any way that a newbie can start at lesson one?

Tirea Aean:
The blog has been moved to tirea.learnnavi.org for those who didn't know. :) I am continuing to do frequent updates. I've also updated the site with a NEW Look to match the colour scheme of the main LearnNavi.org site.

Now taking requests on things to talk about. What is it in NiaN or Horen that's confusing to you and would like to have explained in every day language? :)
