Related to the last post is this news-article from MacEwan University student newspaper. I gave a talk on my paper on Digital Na'vi Fandoms there on March 4th, 2015.   Fandom communities and anthropology http://thegriff.ca/2015/03/fandom-communities-anthropology/

Hey, awesome! Thanks for the update. It's interesting that there were people here who said that proficiency in the language was necessary in order to feel a connection to our community here.

So your work here eventually led you to create the Kryptonian language of Man of Steel. That's totally cool. [much-belated] Congrats!

Thanks for the congrats! Yes, the proficiency connection was very interesting. Some of the actual quotes are included in the full paper posted a few replies above.
