They are both inclusive. Awnga is simply a more casual form.
We learn from our mistakes only if we are made aware of them.
If I make a mistake, please bring it to my attention for karma.

A good rule:  if you see "ng" (from nga) in the word, it's inclusive.  Otherwise, (moe, pxoe, ayoe), it's exclusive.

                                                                            awnga
                                                                               ^
ay+ (oe - nga) = "We-s" + "you-s" = We (inc., pl.) => ayoenga
                                                                               v
                                                                           ayoeng

                                              (the two way of constraction, both mean the same thing)



ng means nga sometimes in these pronouns. Having the "you" means the word becomes inclusive.

This is really helpful!  Is there a place that I could go to listen to Na'vi actually spoken, like a tutorial?  I would like to get the inflections.  I learned Spanish from tapes.  They took things slowly and explained the inflections are pronunciation.

Almost, ma Tanhì.
The first sentence is correct, however the second it is not.

It should be, to me:

Fì'uri, oe irayo seiyi ayngaru.

This thing-TOP, I thank you all.

Instead of fì'uri, maybe it would be fìkemirì, as we're talking about an action.

Now that I think about it...Would this work?

For this I thank you.

No, because Irayo is an interjection and you need to create a verb using "si". With si verbs, the accusative takes the dative and the agentive takes no marker.

So,

"Oe irayo si ayngar(u)"
