In one of deleted scenes ("The Challenge") Neytiri says "Eo Eywa moe muntxa slolu".

Yeah, but there is not dative :)

Quite, still wondering about that dative/intransitive verb usage myself.

That is probably the correct phrase nìNa'vi.


Agreed.  I'd say we can treat that as a canon-approved way to express this idea.

TANGENT:  I wonder if the closest Na'vi equivalent of the human marriage ceremony would be that time after the fact when it is made known to the clan that they have mated.

We need to examine the clip...  Has it been verified and added to the wiki corpus already?

There is also the Dream Hunt scene and maybe a couple of others that have Na'vi in them....

There's also a thread on the matter...

Yes, we see transitive usage of teswotìng there.
