Welcome to the page about Na'vi!


Lì'fya leNa'vi tsawna fteytok nìngay. Fko kem ke soli kea tìkangkemur alahe.
Tsaw ke lu oeyä, nìteng ke lapoyä.


The Na'vi language as it really exists. No additional work was done to it.
Neither me, nor any of the Na'vi clan collaborators own this language.
Fair use
A language by Paul Frommer


What it's got:
- Ergative alignment with both agent/patient markings (ergative/absolutive) ;
- absolutive only appears in the situation of the transitive object of a verb ;
- entirely free word order ;
- ejectives ;
- dual, trial ;
- dative, genitive, topical, vocative ;
- infixed conjugations ;
- only past/present/futur tenses, but immediacy and perfectivity are distinctive ;
- reflexive, causative, active participle, passive participle ;
- laudative, pejorative, honorific, nonwitness.



Todo:
- verbs in +lu and +si are still conjugated wrong in the tables.
