Sevin is for females only; for males it's sayrìp. In the rest of the cases (i.e. plants, animals, mountains etc.) I'd use lor.

It's not just for females is it? It's primarily?
You can still use it for a male... :)

It's not just for females is it? It's primarily?

I think primarily means that using sevin for males would be considered stylistically incorrect.

When in doubt … tätxaw ne tsim ;)

Here it says »primarily of male/female« – I said it back then, I say it again: I read that as you can use sevin for a male and sayrìp for female. It just may not be common.

Oh, I didn't even know about sayrìp! :o It's not in the English-Na'vi dictionary under the word 'beautiful'.

That's because it means "handsome" instead  ;)  :o :D

I advice you read Na'vi - English dictionary too. And Pawl's blog, I find sayrìp there. :)

Yes, I do read it as well! :) It's just that when I don't have any idea what the word is, I can't go search it in Na'vi. :D But for known words, I use the Na'vi-English too. :3 I'm not used to visiting Pawl's blog though, I should take that habit! :o
