Very nice, but it cannot be more exciting than these New Horizons press conferences back in 2015 ;D

Hello friends


Txantsan! It looks great :)

@Toliman

Thank you very much. :D

Here is my latest figure. Fate / Grand Order Ruler / Jeanne d`Arc from French Doll. She is almost 40cm tall.










A few pictures from the garden. Here you can also see the flag better. She is accompanied by an entourage of Lil 'fairys. ;D







Best regards,

Will Avatar 2 see CJ Jones, Vin Diesel making their entry? Know in detail!
https://www.devdiscourse.com/article/entertainment/1627322-will-avatar-2-see-cj-jones-vin-diesel-making-their-entry-know-in-detail

We know CJ Jones was hired to create a Na'vi sign language for the sequels, and Diesel's "yet" is clear indication that if he's going to play any part in the AVATAR sequels it will be in 4 or 5, and probably minor.

Kaltxì all,

First post here! I'm interested in the historical linguistics of Na'vi and was wondering if any etymological link has ever been hypothesized between krr and trr, considering how similar they are in form and meaning. Are there any there other examples of a t/k alternation (or similar sorts of consonant alternations) in roots? Or is this just a coincidence?

Irayo!

Good day and welcome to LearnNa'vi!

There's nothing concrete to share, however allow me to speculate a little bit based on a brief inquiry into our dictionary.

Two adpositions exist, ta, from or since (with temporal words) and ka, across or covering. Perhaps there's some validity to a link to these words? Krr is more broadly covering while trr is more localized, time measured since an event?

Komum oe! So, just to be thorough, I've also asked the language's creator who occasionally keeps good notes on these original words. I will update here if I hear back from him.

Update:
Quote from: Paul Frommer
Kxì, ma Mako!

Excellent question, but I'm afraid the answer will be disappointing: There's no known etymological link. The two words are independent, and the similarity appears to be a coincidence . . . unless upon investigating more deeply we eventually discover there was a connection at an earlier stage of Na'vi.
