IRAYO!!!! irayo fpi ngayä ler     :)
I only did the forst 60 or so pages (and the very last one). Please thank Skxang and Eight. Eight did the amazing rhyming dictionary (which appears right after the Na'vi "starter songbook." Skxawng made the grammar sheets, AND THEN gave me permission in add them to this little document. He is my hero. Please give Eight and Skxawng some karma love.

irayo. oe kame. I must post more then.

I will thank them both!! Please excuse my skxawng. .ness, but how do you give karma?  ???

Found a small error in this:

In the "2-Letter words to memorize and remember" section

#5 - __ E "Where (to)? You want (to) go downtown?

This use (the one highlighted in red) of the English word "to" is not the same meaning as the Na'vi word for "to" you're asking for.

The first usage is correct, the second usage is the infinitive form of the verb "go." The Na'vi translation of this would not use the word for "to," but rather k<iv>ä.

If you still want a second usage you could instead change it to: "Where (to)? You want to go (to) the store?

Yeah, I changed that (in the "changed version.") It was a surreptitious "to." I was tired at the time. Thanks for noticing and posting.

Kaltxì, this is so good! And easy too!! +1 karma for Skxawng, +1 karma for Kaltxì Palulukan and also Eight +1 karma.

Edit: The only bad thing in it, is that i cant typ in it. I know u guys dont want some stealing it and i understand that. I just that their is no company in my area where i can print stuff and even if their is one, i probably need permission of my parents and they wont let me cuz they think i dont need it. I have enough paper to print it out at home but i dont know if its worth printing, of course its worth but it are a 100 pages

You could print it Duplex (double sided) and cut your paper use in half if that's the issue.  You could also print of a few at a time instead of all at once.  Perhaps 10 pages at a time (for five sheets of paper)

Whoah, if somebody were to teach a Na'vi class, that would be like a whole semester's worth of homework!!

Agreed. I would be sitting in the front row. EVERYDAY! Such a shame that there isn't a class being taught at my university... By the way Rain, your profile picture is absolutely GORGEOUS!

I know! I'm jealous of a fictional character's looks... :) Though I think the she represents the beauty in all humanity. So I can at least share in an inner beauty with that regard.

This is going to happen. In fact, that's the main reason we are here! If more and more people speak it, Fox might release the copyright and we could register it just like Klingon.

I totally agree in that ^^ Na'vi is officially the most awesome language ever.
I tend to hate every language... (also my native one >.>) but I love Na'vi.

it would be so awesome if Na'vi gets such a copyright as Klingon, but I don't think its ever going to happen that you can learn it in class.
Klingon still is the language only geeky star trek fans speak (no offence) and I think that Na'vi, how sad it might be for such a brilliant language, is going to be the same thing for Avatar.
^^ I will gladly be one of those "geeks" who learn this language, and I've got only one reason: :D Na'vi is simply awesome

Well... Na'vi is a very simple language after all. There isn't much exceptions to grammar rules. There isn't a written language so we write what we hear thus no strange writing rules. The rules of speech let you say anything you want in the order you want which is very good when you need to transmit an idea to someone. I think it could make a pretty good international language. Ho yes there's some hard sounds but not everybody is able to do the th english sound correctly.

Also: use the "draft" setting to use less ink! :)

In regards to printing documents, I have to mention here how sneaky I am... I work late at my office and when everyone is gone, I just slyly use the work printer. Also, when no one is in the office I can usually be caught pronouncing words at my desk :) It's such a beautiful language when spoken aloud. I love it.

A success story:

Ever since I printed out and began working on this 100 page workbook I've had two people ask where they can learn Na'vi as well!  Two referrals to LearnNavi.org in the bank!
