Neither can I. My nexus 10 just had to have a wipe and the apk is not in my backups. If we can find it, I'll put it on the server and link from there.  - M.

I just saw I made a mistake in my last message: It's M24 not M34.

By the way, if one day I find a way to observe under dark skies, will I be able to spot some nebulae, which I can't do now except for M42?

However, you say:
 but also to denounce possession: oeru lu puk I have a book (literally a book is to me). To say I am hunting it is simply oe teraron which more literally means I hunt continually or I hunt in an ongoing fashion.

I thought the -yä and -ä suffixes were used to show possession? Are these both valid to represent this, e.g. Oeyä puk. Are they just used in different situations?
Yeah, that's right. Oeyä puk means my book but oeru lu puk means I have a book. So both concern possession but in a different way. In the first you're describing the fact that the book is yours and in the second you say that you have the book. Another example:
Kelku oeyä lu tsawl my house is big versus lu oeru kelku atsawl I have got a big house.

Hi there! Welcome to the Learn Na'vi Forums :D

I'm just in to say hello and to second what EMIBH here said before me.  Your assumption was right about lu vs. <er> when you said this:
Quote
Is the former used to describe, and the later to show the tense in the verb such that they never cross over in purpose?

lu is not a helper verb; there are no helper verbs in Na'vi like in English. (in English, the main helper verbs are have and be, such that we have these kinds of sentences: "I am eating", "She has slept.")  For these, we have modified forms of the verb that involve inserting something inside, rather than use another verb such as lu.  Additionally, infixes such as <er> can only ever be inserted into verbs.  What I like to say to people when they first come across this is:

Quote
<er> = "be/am/is/are  ____ing"
<er> has the "be/am/is/are" baked in already so there is no need to use lu along with any other verb.
