Since the list thing seemed more speedy and we're running out of time here, here is my list. I've organized it based off of the wiki's categories, and then by class.  I checked all of these against the list on the wiki page, as well as Taronyu's dictionary. Forgive me If I missed any.

Sorry, editorial fiat.  We already have ways to express greetings and leave-taking.  I'm giving strong priority to words for concepts we don't yet have available to us.  Perhaps some day Frommer will come up with "toodles" but it doesn't seem to me something we should request on our first list of desired vocab.  ;)

What about "enemy"? The Na'vi have worriors, and I presume they had them before the sawtute came...
