New words (OBSOLETE INFORMATION)
« on: December 22, 2009, 08:31:40 am »
Information within is obsolete, and goes against our since enacted stance on creation/hybridization of words.

the vocabulary is very limited as it is, we can all agree on that.
So we were thinking about some words we didn't know how to translate (like darkness)
it might be an idea to to post your ideas on words we don't have translations for.
They don't have to be right, they're not set, they're just ideas, so don't be ashamed of them.

eg:
Darkness could be:
katan (no-light)
nihawng kelkuyä (home of evil)
ketìray (no life (since life could be seen as light by na'vi (I see you, everything giving light at night)))

Ideas are always welcome.

Glad that someone started this thread. I've been finding words left and right that I'd love to translate but haven't been able to yet. I'll go ahead and suggest another word that may work.

Sleep (v) - txomawey

Sleep (n) - Tìtxomawey

Sleepy (adj) - Letìtxomawey

The last one is <le><tì>txomawey. Kinda tricksy.

could you translate them in some way, explain what you do?
I'm not really fluent enough to translate them from memory :p

Definitely! I apologize for not doing so the first time!

Txomawey - (Night Calm)

Tìtxomawey- (Night Calm) with <tì> prefix for creating abstract nouns from verbs.

Letìtxomawey - Same as above but with additional <le> prefix for creating an adjective from a noun.

One I suggested in another thread...

fpom-tu n. medic/healer (well-being person, contrast to toktor which seems to be an English borrow for Grace Augustine's title rather than medical doctor)
Ftxey lu nga tokx ftxey lu nga tirea? Lu oe tìkeftxo.

Well as you can see in his message he already included new words that weren't even publish like friend. So he probably has a whole pile of vocabulary ready. But as he said he is waiting for James Cameron's response so maybe James has the copyright of the language or something and Paul needs his permission to introduce the new words.
