very/many
« on: December 19, 2010, 12:49:15 pm »
Ok, today I was writing in my blog and I noticed that Na'vi has many words for "many/very" and I actually don't know the difference between them.
Until now I found: nìhawng, nìtxan, pxay and txan...

Anyone explains the difference?  :-[

Pxay is for countable things like "pxaya utral" - many trees
Txan is for things you can't count, like "txana prrwll" - a lot of moss

Nìtxan is the adverb of txan, "Oe 'efu nitram nìtxan" - I'm feeling very happy!
Nìhawng is instead used as "Lu ye'krr nìhawng" - it's too early

Ok, i got it, except the use of nìtxan...

You use it with verbs.
As in the sentence below:
Oe harmhang nìtxan. - I was laughing a lot.
Then nìtxan is refering to how I laughed.

Poan lu kawng nìtxan. - He is very evil/bad. "How bad is he? Very"
Poe lu yawne oer nìtxan. - She is very beloved to me. "How is she beloved to you? Very beloved"
Tsautral lu tsawl nìtxan. - That tree is very big. "How big is that tree? Very big."

Now? :)
