Some vocabulary questions for my story
« on: January 26, 2012, 03:31:53 pm »
I do preparation for my new Na'vi story and I need some help. How to say "Eywa stands by you" (in meaning Eywa supports you)? my first ideas were
Eywa kllkxem ìlä nga or Eywa kllkxem ngahu,
but I'm not sure if they are correct. This sentence sounds to me as an idiom...

Do we have some word (proposed?) for "neural interface" of creatures (like ikran)?

I think it would be something like Eywa ngaru tìhawnu si. I'm not sure that "stands by you" might be translated literally.

Another question: where patientive case go:

Poel tìng poru tsko[?] swizaw[?].

Giving them to both words looks odd to me, but which position is correct?
Nobody has idea how to say "neural interface (alu antennae)"
