The Topic List

(1/1)

wm.annis:
Because words so often relate to other words, I hope to organize most of the list we send to Frommer by broad topic/semantic categories.  It's also easier for us, to see what has gone on in a particular area when we think we need a word.  Here's the list I'm currently working with (though it may need some tweaking):

Edit (Mar 4): Old topic list obliterated.  The one from here is better.

[*]The physical world
[*]Kinship
[*]Animals
[*]The body
[*]Food and drink
[*]Clothing and grooming   
[*]The house
[*]Agriculture and vegetation
[*]Basic actions and technology
[*]Motion
[*]Possession
[*]Spatial relations
[*]Quantity
[*]Time   
[*]Sense perception   
[*]Emotions and values
[*]Cognition
[*]Speech and language
[*]Social and political relations   
[*]Warfare and hunting   
[*]Law
[*]Religion and belief
[*]Modern world
[*]Miscellaneous function words
[/list]

Some words will sensibly go into several categories.  Don't go nuts deciding the perfect one.

'eylan na'viyä:
someone might add an advice that everyone should look in the newest dictionary
i guess its this http://mwf-data.clonk2c.ch/dvi/attach/NaviDictionary.pdf

although that should be clear i saw many requests for words that already exist

and of cause that everybody sould use the search function inside this forum before posting.

Toruk Makto:
The Wiktionary (http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/Appendix:Na%27vi) has a lot of plural and infix forms that might make it easier for folks only familiar with root words. Perhaps that should be pointed to as a reference as well?
