Some practice sentences
« on: February 18, 2016, 07:24:54 pm »
Since I kind of took a long break from learning and practicing Na'vi I wanted to make sure these were correct, however simple they may be.
(I probably have asked about a handful of these before)

Oe tìsyätxaw - I am determined to return soon
Oe t<ìsy>ätxaw

Oe yerom - I am eating
Oe y<er>om

Oel wutsot yerom - I am currently eating dinner
Oe-l wutso-t y<er>om

Oe lu numultxamì - I am in class
Oe lu numultxa-mì

Oe tok ronumtseng - I am at school
Oe tok ro+numtseng

Oe ke lu fìtsenge - I am not here
Oe ke lu fì-tsenge

Oe wereyn - I am drawing
Oe w<er>eyn

Oel ayrelit weyn - I draw pictures
Oe-l ay+rel-it weyn

Lu oeru ayfuk - I have books
Lu oe-ru ay+puk

Ke lu oeru kea fìwopx - I do not have clouds
Ke lu oe-ru kea (ay+)pìwopx

Mostly correct :)

Quote
1. Oe lu numultxamì - I am in class
Oe lu numultxa-mì

2. Oe tok ronumtseng - I am at school
Oe tok ro+numtseng

3. Oe ke lu fìtsenge - I am not here
Oe ke lu fì-tsenge
2. Tok already means ''to be at'', so no need to add ''ro''. Tok is a transitive verb, so you can use the direct object as the place at which you are.

1. & 3. Lu is not necessarily wrong, but a bit literal. I suggest tok.

1. -> Oel tok numultxati
3. -> Oel ke tok fìtsengit
I would be more careful with 1. What is class? Is it a place you can occupy? I don't think so, numultxa is formed from nume (learn) + ultxa (meeting), so it is meeting created for learning purposes.
Safer way for me is Oel frrfen numultxati - I visit class, Oe lu numutxatu  numultxayä  - I'm member of class/ class participant. Those two are a little different from intended original, but could suffice.
Anyway - you did well, you're going right way :)

If it was a classroom mentioned instead, it could be Oel tok numtsengit?



Ulte srane ma Hahaw.  ;D

Kea tìkin ;)

btw
numtseng
numtengvi
numultxa
numultxatu
-

school
class
lesson
class mate

Mostly correct :)

Quote
1. Oe lu numultxamì - I am in class
Oe lu numultxa-mì

2. Oe tok ronumtseng - I am at school
Oe tok ro+numtseng

3. Oe ke lu fìtsenge - I am not here
Oe ke lu fì-tsenge

1. & 3. Lu is not necessarily wrong, but a bit literal. I suggest tok.

1. Tok is used as lu 'to be' in English but only for places for example 'Oel tok fìtsenget'.

2. You can add preposition before noun but only with space or attach it to noun as suffix without space 'mì seng' or 'tsengmì'.

it's not fully correct - be more careful!
numtsengvi = classroom (division of school, room in the school where students learn)
Class (lesson) is numultxa
