@navi_wotd. Na'vi word of the day on Twitter.

(1/68) > >>

Puvomun:
On twitter I follow an account that used to send out a Na'vi word each day (@ninaviliuletrr). That's stopped since over a month, after a few months of operation.

As of this evening, around 20:00 GMT+1 DST (yeah, lu tsakrr nìmun), the new @navi_wotd twitter account will start sending out a Na'vi word of the day. I have automated the stuff, and the list of words is easily maintainable, so I can make certain there are LOTS of words for many days to come. (I have about 75 ready so far.)

If by chance the list might run out, the script will restart sending the words from the top, so there will be a Na'vi word of the day in any case. (Repetition, repetition, repetition, kefyak? ;) )

If you are interested in a Na'vi word a day, please follow @navi_wotd. It's there for everyone. The more the merrier.

Kìyevame!

Do you want to include a spoken sample of the word alone and in a sentence along with the text?  If you give me the list I can prep some recordings ahead of time and pass the URLs on for you to add.

Tewti! That would be awesome! I have put the file (it is a simple CSV) here for you.
There are almost 200 words in it already, and today word 4, yayo, was tweeted, so you know where it's at.

Well I've recorded a few starting at tomorrow's word (sar)...  You can link to them at http://navi.tyger.org/wotd_N.mp3 where N is the number.  Currently 5-7 are up, I'll put up more when I get a chance, before they are needed.

Fantastic job, irayo ma 'eylan!! I'll update things with the links. :-)

I have updated the script for use with the mp3s.
For each new word, the script will first attempt to download the appropriate mp3. If that is found, a link will be added to the tweet, otherwise no link will be generated. That is perhaps the safest way to go about this.

The length-statement is a pointer for me when developing, as a tweet is 140 characters max, and I want to keep an eye on the length of the descriptive texts.

I am already picturing a combination of all our efforts, together with @navilessons, to provide a link to a page that shows the description and that has a link to the mp3. Should not be too hard to set up.
