I have never seen an official usage of "ayfmawn" or other plural of fmawn. Every time I see a use of fmawn by Pawl, it means news and is used in the same way as I see people use *ayfmawn. *shrug* It seems to look like another uncountable case like syuve. Why would fmawn not be sufficient and ay+ not be redundant? I think this is all because the secondary definition of fmawn is "something to report"; I think it should probably be "information to report". Unless by some chance fmawn is actually countable in Na'vi? (it's not in English, but it looks like it is in German and some other languages) Hmmm :-\ ???

Plumps:

Confirmation for syuve and naer here. fmawn has never been spotted in the plural form in official examples and is always translated as “news” or “some news”.

I tried to ask Pawl about it on the blog but never got a response.
