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.

very interesting ;D where did you find this rule? (i'm just asking because i don't really get it ;D)

yeah it's a really good text :D but when i read it i remembered one question i wanted to ask here some time ago: i learned speaking this tricky r (not the rr but the other r just like in "nari" ;D) but i just can't speak it if it's used next to a consonant!!! (like in "srefey" or "utral") ;D do you know how i can speak this r in such a case? :D

i also have some problems to get this "rr" into words (i can spell it but if i try to say it in a word it sounds pretty...erm...strange ;D) but i'm working on... ;D but if anyone has a tip for me here you're also welcome to help me ;D

look at this:
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liste_der_IPA-Zeichen#r
rr = r
r = ɾ

or listen to this: it's the word frakrr spoken by omängum fra'uti: http://navi.tyger.org/wotd_50.mp3 - it's got both r and ɾ in it.
If you want others, just look here: http://forum.learnnavi.org/audio/spoken-na%27vi-words/

Tewti.  Oel ke olamomum futa fìkìngìl tok fìtsenget

/\Ayeyawr lu srak?

-ol- is perfective aspect infix, it means that you've done something, but here you need just past simple -am-: I did not know.

The verb tok is transitive, so use it with agentive and patientive cases, also it doesn't need any adpositions.

eyawr is an adjective, but plural prefix ay- is for nouns and pronouns only.

Honestly, I have no idea how I messed up on eyawr, but the rest make sense.  Irayo  :)

I would say <ìm> (instead of <am>) would be better in this sentence. "I didn't know just a moment ago, but I've just found this thread (I found it a moment ago.)"

Basically it's the difference between this and that.  Same for any fì- or tsa- noun.

so a tree next to me would be "fiutral" and a tree far away would be "tsautral" then, or am I wrong? :-\
