Tsongmì Nìtxukx (Deep in the Meadow)
« on: December 26, 2015, 01:52:36 pm »
I watched The Hunger Games Mockingjay Pt 2 the other day and was fascinated by another song “Deep in the Meadow” (sung by Jennifer Lawrence at the end). 

I published my attempt for a translation on my blog but wanted to provide it here as well. Ha, ayngaru fì’u

tsongmì nìtxukx, äo tsaflefle
nivi ta zeswa, yotsyìp ahewne
ngey re’ot txeykay, menarir sivi tstu
lu piak a krr, tsawke fäza’u

zongtseng lu, sang fìtsenge lu
fìtseng tìhawnu si rawp wä frakxu ngaru
fìtseng l(u) ayunil hona, rewonìl sat ngay sleyku
fìtseng lu tsenga oer yawne nga lu

tsongmì nìtxukx, alìm alìm nìwan
ayrìkä fnelew, atanvi akawnan
yengwalit tswiva’, ngey sngumti mawey sleyku
ulte ro srr’ong, kayä neto fra’u

zongtseng lu, ’te sang fìtsenge lu
fìtseng tìhawnu si rawp wä frakxu ngaru
fìtseng l(u) ayunil hona, rewonìl sat ngay sleyku
fìtseng lu tsenga oer yawne nga leiu


Note: ’te is a shortened form of ulte … it’s understandable and feasible, isn’t it?

Tìng Mikyun

Ayngaru prrte’ lìyevu…

Nìngay tìralpeng atxantsan ma Plumps - apparently author of original took in consideration that song could be translated into Na'vi :)
As for singing - I like more version sung by Sting, as for music - I like version sung by Jennifer Lawrence (at the beginning).

Thank you so much, ma tsmuk.
I didn’t even know there was a version by Sting until I did some research into the lyrics. I just heard the version at the end of the movie.
Yeah, it’s interesting that for the most part, we can already translate such complicated structures. You have to shorten quite a lot in Na’vi and pay attention to stress and intonation in comprison to English one-syllable preference but it is doeable.
