will, will not and willingness
« on: April 08, 2011, 03:03:24 pm »
I cannot find those words,  ??? so I wonder how would one express those terms in sentences?
I will eat. I will not eat. Are you willing to go with us? Who is willing... who will ,etc.

Was it? Well, repetition won’t harm anybody :P

These are different verbs ;)
The form that produces the English will-future (will = auxiliary verb) in Na’vi is made by using the infix ‹ay›
oe yayom = I will eat
oe ke yayom = I will not eat
(in contrast to, e.g. oe yom = I eat, oe ke yom = I don’t eat)

The independed verb “to will” (your last 2-3 sentences) doesn’t exist in Na’vi (yet).

It is however very similar to new, 'want'.
We learn from our mistakes only if we are made aware of them.
If I make a mistake, please bring it to my attention for karma.

Ma Lora Syulang, Na'vi  grammar is completely different to English. You should translate meanings, no words. ;)
Hawe you read Na'vi in a Nutshell? If not - attentively read it. :)

Really. There is an infix for everything, and if not then they will (in)fix that before you can say Palulukan... ::)
