Sure, Why Not?: Learn How To Speak Na'vi

January 2, 2010


Want to learn how to speak like those crazy blue cats in that 3-D movie you just saw? Well now you can thanks to the 'Learn Na'vi Pocket Guide'! Ah, internet, you never cease to amaze me with your treasure trove of shit I don't need but can't resist.

Na'vi is a 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.
Click clack tikky tikky. Am I doing it right? I have no idea because I haven't seen the movie or looked at the pocket guide. I will though, just as soon as I finish scouring the internet for a 'Dino-Speak Pocket Guide'. 'RAWR' means I love you, I know that. Now what about, "put those little dino-arms down my pants"? RAWR? Okay I'm lost.

Thanks to Ben, who learned how to speak Na'vi fluently so he can hit on all the blue chicks. Hey -- watch out for those tentacles, bro.
