Help me I am a total skxawng!
« on: March 04, 2010, 07:23:55 pm »
Kaltxì,
I just looked up the meaning of my name and it was 'Laurel' or 'Crowned with laurel'
And I wanted to translate that into Na'vi...

But Laurel is some sort of leaves and because we don't have a word for it already I substituted it with the word for 'branch'. Which is 'vul' So is the plural form of 'vul' 'ayvul' ?

Then I thought: 'That isn't enough!' So I made 'The one with branches' which led me to 'awpo for person and hu for with. So please tell me if it's correct to say 'awpo hu ayvul for 'Laurel'

Irayo ma tsmukan,
Eywa ayngahu

Well, since you and i have the same root to our names, that makes us like siblings ;)  "Crowned with laurel" is a reference to a ritual signaling accomplishment, victory, etc.--it still survives in the Italian verb laurearsi, which, amongst other things, is used to talk about graduating from university.  So, instead of going for a literal translation of your name, why not try pursuing that concept of "victory," "success," or "accomplishment"?

Please help me out! I actually need this for a school project on 'fake' languages!
Don't get me wrong when I say fake, I just ment that it's not a languages that is spoken in a country or something like that

Irayo,

Kaltxì!

If your question is still the thing from the topic start post, than it's okay.
In fact either 'awpo hu ayvul and 'awpo ayvulhu would be good... depends on you only...

It should be simply:
Nga sìlronsem leiu.


Why saying two times the "nga" ??? (nga-ri, "ngaya"->ok, what did you want to say with this ???)

Ngay = true
So I thought from what I think I remembered (it's kinda late here :P) that it should become ngaya -> truly

Oh... okay (late here too ;))
Than i think it's good, though i'd drop the topic-marker...

Can you explain why I should drop it?
You're helping me out big time by the way :P

Well as far as i know the topic marker is for cases when it would be difficult (if not impossible) to tell what's the main thing you're speaking about. (or something like this... many of the experts tell that we should avoid it if we can)

So, since here isn't another thing what would trouble the understanding...
(the topic-marker is really one of the few things i don't really understand... that's the other explanation ;))


And i'm glad i can help:D

I was trying to translate the first line of 'American Idiot' by GreenDay
This is my go at it:
oeri ke neu skxawng aìnglìsì layu
I (topic) not want idiot english (adverb) to be
I don't want to be an american idiot

I substituted American by English... Blame me xD

I'd say it should be:
Oe ke new futa oe skxawng leìnglìsì layu.
i not want that i moron english be-future
                ^^-> fì'u-t-a = futa (this thing-accusative-which)

... leìnglìsì ...

Why leìnglìsì? and not aìnglìsì?

Because ìnglìsì is a noun (english language), so it needs the adject deriver.
I just checked it and in fact it's 'ìnglìsì, so it shlould be le'ìnglìsì...
