In grammar, a conjunction is a part of speech that connects two words, phrases or clauses together.
That: futa, a, fwa, tsnì
From a very useful post by omängum fra'uti.
There are several words that mean "that" in a conjunctive sense.
The first is a on it's own.
- Lu oe-ru ay-lì'u a new oe nga-ru p<iv>eng.
- I have words that I want to tell you.
There are also several contractions based on a...
- Fì'u + a = fwa
- Lu sìltsan fwa tsun nga tsl<iv>am.
- It is good that you can understand.
- Fì'ut + a = futa
- Oel omum futa nga new n<iv>ume.
- I know that you want to learn.
Then there is tsnì, which can be used with intransitive verbs...
- Sìlpey oe tsnì fì'u nga-ru srung s<iv>i.
- I hope that this helps you.
This one is actually optional and you could say instead (And Frommer usually does)
- Sìlpey oe, fì'u nga-ru srung s<iv>i.
- I hope this helps you.
However the first sentence, and related things, we've seen Frommer say something like...
- Nga-l ikran-it ngeyä t<ol>atep a fì'u-ri oe tsap'alute si.
- You lost your Ikran, about that, I apologize. (I apologize that you lost your ikran.)
The second could be said similarly...
- Nga oe-ru srung s<er>i a fì'u-ri oe lrrtok si.
- You help me, about that, I smile. (I smile that you help me.)
Potentially you could also use the causative there.
- Oe-ti lrrtok s<eyk>i fì'u-l a nga oe-ru srung s<er>i.
- You helping me makes me smile.
And: sì and ulte
Na'vi has two words for 'and'.
Ulte is used when connecting clauses.
- oel ngati kameie, ma tsmukan, ulte ngaru seiyi ireiyo source
- I see you, brother, and I give you thanks
Sì is used when connecting two things
- Ayeylanur oeyä sì eylanur lì'fyayä leNa'vi nìwotx source
- To all my friends and friends of the Na'vi language
To say "A is adj-er than B," you simply say "A to B lu adj."
- Po to oe lu sìltsan source
- You are better than me
- Fwa sute pxel nga tsun oeyä hì'ia tìngopit sivar fte pivlltxe nìlor fìtxan oeru teya si. source
- That people like you can use my little creation to speak so beautifully fills me with joy
- slä oe zene kivä
- But I must go
Because: talun, taweyk or consider using the Causative

- tengkrr + ‹er› (IPFV) source
- indicate simultaneous action, “she ran away laughing”
- Txo new nga rivey, oehu! source
- (Come) with me if you want to live!
If not: txokefyaw
