Hey there GMT-8!!! (or Ikran Clan of the Western Sea, if that's the only suggestion)

I am in the process of creating a second Prezi for this week's meeting on Friday, May 28. It will consist of a review of basic words for various people, some simple descriptive words, the way to link these words to the nouns they modify, and I will also go over plurals in a more in-depth way (lenition). It's nearly complete!

However, Friday, June 4 is the last day of Dead Week for me, so although I will be able to attend the meeting, there is absolutely zero chance that I will be able to make much of a contribution on that day as far as new learning materials go. Therefore, Txona Rolyu, if you could put together some sort of presentation or lesson plan, not necessarily Prezi, but something substantial for that week, it would be most appreciated. Once school is finished (which will be the following week) I will be much more available for working on this together with you. Right now I've basically been doing these whenever I have time (read: at work) and I know I've been a bit hard to reach. I don't want you to think I'm ignoring you, I've just been supremely busy.

Hope to see you all on Friday at 6:00PM!

Kay...keep in mind to keep this very simple...and please try to exclude all other languages besides Na'vi. Im not saying I want clones of Le'eylan's prezis, but if you could, teach this in a conceptual way completely avoiding translation to English. I find that to be one of the original objectives to the project. It should be fun to look through and should be clear to understand.

That said...I hope all goes well, best of luck to you tsmukan Kay.

Oh and before I forget...Kay..and all others who make Prezis, spread the word that I want all the Prezis in one place BEFORE class this time so I can review them and such. PM would be the best way...PM me links to your prezis...THanks a Pandoran Ton!

...but if you could, teach this in a conceptual way completely avoiding translation to English...

I'll give you an idea of what I've done. To teach the words sìltsan and kawng, I've shown a series of pictures that the narrator (a Na'vi warrior) would consider to be representatives of those characteristics. For example, as a Na'vi warrior, I would definitely see Neytiri, Jake, and Mo'at as sìltsan, and I would definitely see Col. Quaritch and Parker as kawng. Of course this is very subjective, but then again, sìltsan and kawng are the two most subjective concepts in this or any language.

Similarly, kanu could be represented by Dr. Grace, or perhaps Albert Einstein, whereas snumìna could be represented by Jake as he's being taught how to say "nari" by Neytiri, or perhaps Forrest Gump or something. Again, I'm not directly translating any words at all; I'm just giving representative examples of people and objects that embody these characteristics. It's basically the only way to teach people adjectives; they're not like nouns where you can just show a picture and point an arrow at it.

Fundamentally, I think the only difference between mine and Le'eylan's Prezi's is that I have included enough written narration such that one could read through my presentations and understand them without needing someone to guide them through it orally. Obviously we have that luxury now, but I would like the presentations to be accessible by, say, people in the future who have missed these first meetings of Project NgayNume, and want to get caught up to speed.

I'll PM you a link to what I've done so far; let me know what you think!

Thanks again dude,

Kayrìlien

edit: Because objective and subjective don't mean what each other means.  ;D

I hear ya...The podcast I am about to make will orally go through these prezis without explanation. It sure is a good thing that all these Europeans involved know English already, because if they didnt, They would have to learn English just to learn Na'vi. LOL

I see where youre comin from with the Narration (that is often funny XD) and such. the thing is, even if they just look through and read all the narrative, they still lack the pronunciation they missed out on. PODcast to the rescue! Oral accompaniment to the presentation and a link to it for all who missed out...Im just about to record it myself this time...I will go through Le'eylan's Prezi, and Go through yours.(@Kay) Pretty much read through it. I am not all about preaching technicalities to beginners anymore. its about starting basic and building up. Check out my Podast topic on the NgayNume board to get a link to the podcast. the podcast page will have audio, and a link to the prezi to follow along. This is how I will be making up classes. After class, the podcast makeup will be posted...This one is just taking FOREVER. <Ngaytxoa ma eylan!! D: >

Kay,
That's fine I totally understand how being supremely busy goes. I will be glad to make a lesson for June 4th, I already have something in mind too. I believe I suggested it to you in the PM I sent.


TO ALL:
Hey there GMT-8!!! (or Ikran Clan of the Western Sea, if that's the only suggestion)

So far Ikran Clan of the Western Sea has been our only suggestion and only one other person has voted besides me. We are both in favor of this name. I want to make this a group decision, not the decision of the TAs and 1 student. I will ask everyone who is in Teamspeak this Friday for votes and if nothing else is suggested or no one votes, I will be changing our name to Ikran Clan of the Western Sea after Friday.

Kiyevame ma ay'eylan!
-Txona Rolyu

You all don't know how hard I am kicking myself right now.  Due to school stuff going on and my Graduation hanging in the balance I missed last week's meeting.
Is it too late to enter the program, as in can I attend this week's meeting?   :-[

You've got that backwards. 6:00PM Pacific Time is 7:00PM Mountain Time.  :)

Name: John
TS Name: Neynwey
Additional: I'm Actually in CST, but it is alot easier to make groups that are a few hours behind me cause i work evenings typically.  I am off next friday (the 4th), so sign me up.  I kinda don't know which days I get off, it tends to be random.

as for other things, I am glad to help others out, one of my unique gifts is I take something I learn and show it to others in a way they can understand.

edit: it will be hard for me to get friday's off cause i work retail, primarily evenings.  I'm not gonna let work stop me, I often have monday off, a majority of the time., well, help me out a bit here, if im gonna consistently get off at that time, let the Aussies know ;)
