Why isn't there a "u" at the end of ngar, in the end of the frase; Fyape fko syaw ngar?

I want it to be "Ngaru", "to you", like this

Fyape fko syaw ngaru

That is also correct. In fast speech, optional syllable final vowels (such as the -u in -ru) are often dropped. This can be done with most case markers.

-ru → -r
-ti → -t
-yä → -y

Notably, it is not allowed with the topical case.

-ìri/-ri ↛ *-ìr/-r

Edit: also, that's quite the necropost you did there. You should probably have posted this either in its own thread in the Prefixes, Infixes and Suffixes sub-forum, or as a response in the Na'vi expressions and idioms thread.
