One side-benefit of doing meetings and lectures online during Current Events is that they can be recorded.

.

He's talking to linguistics students, so there's more unexplained jargon. Much of this will be familiar to us, but it's a very nice presentation in a clean format giving the state of things historically.

So, regarding the Na'vi text on the first slide. I have never seen that particular text before, and it seems to be some kind of recipe (I'm calling it Pawl's Mystery Recipe for now hrh). Here's the text (added some newlines for ease of reading):

Nìhay, tsakrr a mehapxì letsngan sì lefkxen alu kllta tsayrum a'awve alaksi nìtam lu, zene yivem fnepayoti. Ngian, fìfnepayri ke tsun fko stivarsìm payfyata fu 'orata nìtrrtrr nìfya a fa fwa starsìm nì'aw, kop frau set hasey lolu nìftue. Kehehe... Zene tsat hivawl nìpxi sre fwa sngä'i 'ivem sngä'ikrr fìfnewutsoti. Tsari zene krrnivekx fpi sìhawl nìteng.

Hufwa fìhapxì ke lu pay a payfyata nìyey, tsafnepay letrrtrr lu hapxì lekxam. Slä, maw fwa starsìm payit, zene tsapaynemfa rivun srekrr mehapxìt a kop tsranten nìtxan... Set, txe'lanit hivawl fte tsivun maweypivey hìkrr... Fìmefnehapxìri ke leru melì'u leNa'vi vay set fte tsivun tivìng nìtstxo, ha zene fko tivìng mevurit ayol fte ralri tsivun ivomum. Alaksi nìmun?...

Tsahapxìri a'awve sar fkol stum frakrr luke fwa fpìl 'Rrtamì.



Anyone seen this text before? Or any idea what this recipe is for?

I might be wrong, but I feel I have seen/read this before. Any chance, this is Prrton’s creation from back of the masempul.org days? Unfortunately, the site is no longer available so I can’t check but I remember that he had a blog post with some kind of recipe at one point …
