Exactly.

It means more precisely ''John is beloved to me''. John can be translated as ''Tsyan''.

"john is beloved by me" is passive voice that turns in Na'vi as Tsyon yawne lu oer as you have written. :) Na'vi doesn't have passive voice by design.



Ninjad!

EDIT:

so saying, Pawl, Tsyan si Ann yawne lu oer is correct?
If you want to say "I love Paul, John and Ann" yes.
