Weirdest spoken Na'vi word

(1/5) > >>

Kaltxì, ma smuk

Another piece of fun similar to the Favorite Na'vi word thread: what do you find to be the weirdest Na'vi word(s) when spoken aloud?  My couple of words are txe'lan and na'rìng — real trippy ones considering where the glottal stop is located XD

Set, pivlltxe ngeyä (ay)lì'u, and have fun with it :)

Eywa ngahu

Muzer:
For some reason, at one point I was trying to pronounce "fngap" and "sngel" with a y sound after the ng (too lazy to find the IPA :P) - not quite sure why.

kewnya txamew'itan:
Both a and e are front vowels, they're probably dragging the ng forwards to a palatal [ ɲ ] like the Spanish ñ which sounds sort of ny-y.

That said, fngap and sngel do both sound strange normally.

Meynari Ke'nawm:
I have no idea why, but I can never pronounce rr sounds when they come after an ll.

You mean in words like "lrrtok"?

Anyway, while you brought up this thread (and this has been hanging around on my mind for a while...)

Weirdest consonant clusters in Na'vi: tst and tstx, as in the words tstew and tstxo.  Even st/stx is easier to enunciate :P
