But correctly spelled in Na'vi pronunciation it would be Gayayä

However, the pronunciation of "Gaia" would still be the Terran way, since it is not a Na'vi word <.< Like how English words are pronounced (almost) the same way in Japanese, because they are still English words. This is a name, too, so there is also that.

My dad posed this question. "How would you say the word cheesburger, since there is no cheese on Pandora nor cows?"
"meoauniaea" (meh-oh-ah-oo-nee-ah-eh-ah). "Don't ask me what it means - I haven't assigned a meaning yet. But I love the word!" Frommer said.

maybe you could break the word down for me since I don't know much about the language.

by break down, do you mean pronunciation-wise or root words?

if ya meant root words there are none, it's an english loan word

pronunciation its tsis like tsees, prr with the strongly trilled r and then krr with the trill again

literally it means daytimefruitpleasure but I think you can guess what it means from how you have to move your tongue to say it :)

[Txon, aysute]

And it's sorted the Na'vi way, not the english way.

How about we shorten it to "Txon, sute"? Unless I'm greatly mistaken, that is also grammatically correct and it's shorter.

Re-read that Pm I sent you about plurals.

How does cheese even translate into na'vi?

We're getting a tad off topic. Maybe we need like a child board or something for off topic posts.
