ah, okay, I get it now :P sorry for being... a little air-headed about that ;)

not sure I have heard (or known of) a Na'vi word with a 'real' rolled r- could you reference a few that should be rolled? and how would you tell the difference?

Might I suggest listening to Dr. Frommer's message he sent to the community oh so long ago? All throughout it you can hear the rs are flapped--and there are two examples of the rolled r, watch for them. First is in the slide (near the end) that says:
Tì'eyngit oel tolel a krr, ayngaru payeng.
When I receive an answer, I will let you know.


And then in the next slide you can hear it in tsakrr.

You can listen to the speech here. Just click on the big link that says, "Oe new ta upxaret Karyu Pawl tivìng mikyun nìNa'vi!". ;)

I love drinking the pomegranate juice "POM" now because it means kiss in Na'vi :3

that is quite alright, ma Tìvawm'ia. real life is more important and does come first. I'm sure a lot of others here are having the same issues. at least you all have lives. HRH. I do nothing. :P

Actually you don't need <iv> at all there because you're not using it with a modal verb or anything, so you got it right :) If you were saying I can understand then you'd need <iv> in tslam because tsun is a modal verb. [/offtopicness]

I'm in the same boat. I still can't say anything beyond the simplest of sentences...and I've been here since April. College and life take a lot of time. :(

When you want to go outside when it's raining and search for a plant to drink out of.
A friend of mine made a joke about this when I first told him I was interested in Avatar. I was staying at his house and it was raining. I said there was nothing to drink. He answered with something along the lines of "Go find some water in a leaf. It's raining after all." :P

I used to go for barefoot walks in the summer sometimes when I was younger...

Anyway, on topic:

...when you start daydreaming about Avatar in class, and struggle get back on task (have had this happen a few times in economics class :P )

ma Swoka; I've been having some nightmares related to some (stupid) fake documentary videos and every time I'm trying to sleep and the thoughts about them creep up I Avatar-fantasize :D

When you cant wait for summer so you can just lay down in the grass, shirtless and shoe-less, and imagine your on Pandora.

p.s. spanish class is terrible for trying to stay focused, every class Avatar pops into my head.
(I've answered many questions with srane and kehe... and I get confused looks for it.)
