Learn Na'vi

learnnavi.org reports: [edited]

Na'vi is a constructed language spoken by the fictional indigenous race (the Na'vi) on Pandora in James Cameron's 2009 film Avatar. The language was created by Paul Frommer, a professor at USC with a doctorate in linguistics. This website exists to share this beautiful language with all who want to learn.

This informational website, like the Na'vi language itself, is still in its infancy. So far, we have a 500 word Na'vi-to-English dictionary, the basics of speaking/pronouncing Na'vi, and an in-progress grammar and syntax section. Check back often for updates!

Brett's 2p'orth: I wonder whether this will supplant Klingon as the geek language of choice.

Thanks to Brook for the link.
