Wow, thanks for that...

How about the basic construction for "I have..." to add?
Lu oeru ....

I love the sample sentences. Like learning material completely out of context for a real situation ;D And I've seen that so often...
"I'm going to kill you with my arrow..." - "Oh, well..." - "Have a nice day..." :P

+1 Karma ;)

As omängum explained:

Na'vi has no verb "to have".  Instead it uses a construction common to many languages of combining the dative case "-ru" and the verb "to be", creating a similar concept.  This works both for physical possession of objects, as well as possession of states of being (Well being, sickness, etc) and abstract concepts (Words, news, message, friends, etc).  Typically the verb comes first in such situations.
Lu oeru ____
Lit. I have ____

You can use this for "I have a car" as well has "I have a cold" or "I have an idea"
