! This time we talk about how to ask and answer questions. Pretty simple stuff. Let's dive right in with some quick vocab.
The question words in Na'vi come from the following words:
To form question words like who, what, where, etc., You add a few lessons ago, this means that when used on the beginning of a word, may cause the word's first letter to change.+ (what/which) onto the word. It can go either onto the beginning or onto the end. shortens to in this case. is by far more common than or . And there's the + sign again. Remember a
The question words in Na'vi:
- / who
- / what
- / where
- / why
- / when
- / how
Notice that when you use+ on the end of the word, the letter changing bit is avoided. This is handy for people who often forget to change the first letter.
Using these words is simple, and a lot like English. The only difference is that the word doesn't have a set place in the sentence because Na'vi word order is flexible. So here are some examples of using some of these words:
Who are you?
Why did you bring this creature here?
Where do you come from? / Where are you from?
It's pretty standard. (more on words likeand later)
It is also possible to stick+ onto any noun. That is, any word which is a person, place, or thing.
Which beast do you like the most?
Which warrior is missing?
Yes/No Questions with Srak(e)
All the above questions require a specific answer which is either the name of a person or place, or a time or a reason, etc. There is another very common type of question to ask: The yes/no question. This is super easy. All you do is add(aka ) to the sentence, either first or last.
you have peace.
Do you have peace?
You eat beetle larvae.
Do you eat beetle larvae?
The answer to a/ question is either (yes) or (no). It's also possible, like in English, to describe things further than just a yes or no answer after you've answered yes or no.
Hopefully this has been simple and helpful.
