Kaltxì ma ayharyu,

Lì'upamìri pamrelviyä omum oel fya'ot, slä li'upamìri aylì'uyä ke nìngay.
In Spanish, they say a word like this: reloj or camión. Do Na'vi say a word like this way too (example: mawey)? How do you pronunce the words?

Aysì'eyngìri ayngeyä irayo!

Wllìm:
Sorry, I don't fully understand your question... Is it about the stress of a word? Na'vi has that, for example:

Fpìl oel futa lì'fya leNa'vi lu lor nìwotx.

It is just like in English:

I consider the Na'vi language to be beautiful. *

This is indicated in the dictionary, for example for ikran in the pronunciation it says ˈik.ɾan. The little ˈ mark indicates the syllable with stress, so it is ikran, not ikran.

Is this what you meant?

Vawmataw:
I just want to know how to pronunce the syllables, the word. :)
What is a stress?

Tìtstewan:
I think, a good way to find out how to pronounce words are listening Frommers audio examples from Na'viteri.

Thanks­

Mawfwa zup tompa, lu ngoa atxan fìhapxìmì na'rìngä.
1st syllable of words (principal word when there is a prefix). Am I right?
