This is what you get when mixing English, Dutch, German, Norwegian, Na'vi and various other languages.

Since I've studied linguistics, this tribal language also fascinated me.

Now, let's decipher those two with question marks.

Sha shin neekt
Sha: Do?
Shin: Me/I or She/Her
Neekt: Can't/Dont

Yo eechay
Yo: You? Phonetics are similar to Dutch/Afrikaans, Jou.
Eechay: Again? (Japaneese?) Phonetics are similar to Mou Ikkai.
= You again!

The main phonetics of this language appears to be more Dutch than German, but with a lot of German mixed into it. Just ask if there are any words you wonder about.

Wait...Na'vi was an actual language? Not just something made up in Avatar?
Holy crap....that's cool.
The only sure sound I could hear from therm when I played it was:
AHHHHHHHH! or RARGGGGGGG! as they fell to the ground :P

LOL! Well, it was "made up" for Avatar, but it was created by a linquist and has it's own dictionary etc. Google "Learn Na'vi" or something like that. But be warned, it is as Jake Sully said in the movie, it IS a pain to learn lol

I found Na'vi pretty easy to learn using the cards and the book.

Stahp dahs off-topicing pleez.

Off-Topic (lulz): I am making a companion that talks in this language, requiring the player to have a high intelligence and perception in order to understand him.

I really love this page.. lol

I like role playing my characters allot, and this really adds to the ability for me or any one to do that.

My current character is named, She-Who-Walks.

Older sister of Follows-Chalk and one of the reasons that (according to the wiki) Joshua Graham feels this:

"Follows-Chalk idolizes Joshua Graham, which worries Graham, who feels he should have as little influence over the tribe as possible."

She got the itch early on to travel and meeting Joshua Graham only fueled that fire.

So she left Zion to see what was out there beyond the park, and with her great knowledge of the area from exploring, she decided that she would be a pretty good courier, and that she became.

She remembered her name and some of her skills, but even those she had to relearn after getting shot in the head twice.

She remembered names for some things, and remembered her gun skills.

And once she finds this Benny, she will go back home and see her family, if they will have her.

Because when she left, they spoke of her or her name no more.

So with all of that.. lol

Here she is finally finding and buying a Night Rifle Scope for her Varmint rifle..
