Pivängkxo?
« on: November 06, 2011, 07:51:08 am »
i'm pretty sure this is tsu'teys war cry, and i've heard it used a couple times in various threads, but no one seems to know its actual meaning. ??? can anyone help me out?

It's the verb pängkxo (to chat, converse) with <iv> infix in it.

yes, but im sure this is what tsu'tey yells in the film when he jumps off his ikran. either pivänkxo or something like evanko/evankxo. :-\

It might be something similar, but I don't think that he asks for a conversation then ;)

I just checked that scene. Tsu'tey doesn't seem to be saying anything intelligible when/after jumping off his ikran. Before that he says 'eko! 'eko! 'eko! and makto ko!. Is that what you mean?
