It's a directional adposition meaning to, towards. Used in expressions like ne narìng oe keräI am going to the forest.
aah i understand... ;D so "i'm going home after school" would mean "oel kä ne kelku maw numtseng" in Na'vi or am i wrong?  :D

just drop the subjective case on oe. there's no direct object here so it's not needed.

It's "agentive case" ;)

can't have any objects because it's intransitive. Also to keep in mind: ne can be dropped if it's used right after the verb.

I've seen people use the term "subjective". I think it's correct (at least grammatically).

really? never seen that rule before. it's very interesting.

Subjective (some use word "nominative") is a different case that is not marked in Na'vi and appears in sentences like oe kä, nga hahaw etc.

yes a sentence like "oel kä kelkuti" would sond pretty strange... ;D
but if "ne" isn't used right after a verb it can be dropped, or am i wrong? :-\

It can't. Oe kä ne kelku=Oe kä kelku=Ne kelku oe kä, but not *kelku oe kä or *kä oe kelku.

It even sounds like a strange way, at least for me.

Strange doesn't mean bad as long as it's correct ;)

But it's been wrong. ;)

I mean, that strangeness would cause the alert - and whether it is right?

Indeed.

One should not forget that sometimes even most ordinary things can turn out to be incorrect.

Aren't ordinary things ordinary because we know for sure they are correct?

Sometimes the mistake is not noticed for a long time and it seems just about right because of its ordinariness. ;)
