Irayo ma Kame for expanding upon this! :)

Not really, cuz I do this and many people around me do this too. If I were to say, "I dunno bout that", both of those ending "t"s are exactly like in Na'vi. And if I say " Take a break." The k in take is unaspirated (no air puff) and only released to blend in to the next word since it starts with a vowel just like in Na'vi and the k at the end of break is unreleased like in Na'vi.  However, when words begin with t, I tend to aspirate it (puff of air) unlike in Na'vi. Some (US?) English speakers are really used to this stuff and some are not, I guess.
