I know, I know. He is a bit controversial in his views – he did something similar with Harry Potter in another video … but that’s his style and everybody is entitled to their opinion ;)

Still, these videos about conlanging/worldbuilding are fascinating and since they are relatively new, I was surprised to find Na’vi mentioned at all (with such high praise) under ejectives. Being familiar with Na’vi of course that’s the first language I think of when I hear ejective consonants. ;)
