What is "Loyal" in Na'vi?
« on: January 05, 2021, 11:07:39 am »
Is there a word for "loyal"? I've looked in the dictionaries and I haven't seen anything that directly translates to "loyal".

Unfortunately, there is no Na'vi word for "loyal" yet. :(

Okay, thanks anyway. Where can I find new words when they are created/added?

I forgot to ask:
What do you attempt to say or translate? Perhaps, there could be an alternative way of translating a sentence/text. :-\

I was thinking about translating "Just and Loyal". I don't know if there would be any alternative since it's so short and specific.

 I'm surprised that "loyal" hasn't been created yet. It seems like it would be an important adjective for describing someone's personality.  :)

Yeah, I would say that we really should to have this word.

Sometimes is possible use some alternative words but often sadly not. For example when I wrote some poems in Na'vi, I missed word for "the Moon" so I call the Moon like as "Tsawke txonä" (the sun of night) xD But luckily now we already have nice Na'vi word for the Moon: Oare.

Cool! :)

Hopefully "loyal" will be made sooner rather than later. It's one of the words that best define who I am, but I understand that it's not easy creating a language.

Yeah, we have to wait. But what I can say, a word for "loyal" was submitted to Paul, if I remember me correctly.

Yeah, I think that it was subbmited.



I was also shocked that we had not word for "Polyphemus" - I was not able understand that Na'vi have not name for that huge object on their sky ;D But now we already have also word for this: Naranawm.
