The Tsahìk called down a curse upon the murdering skypeople
Curse you, ma vrrtep!

miracle (B)

e.g. Eywa sending the Pandoran wildlife to help the Na'vi defeat the Sky-People
would the Na'vi have this concept?

abomination (C)

a vile, shameful, evil deed and/or person
communicating the deepest spiritual loathing
might be something like cutting off another Na'vi's queue for no good reason other than, well, you just didn't like him

the eternal part of a being - eg even if a person's spirit/memory was unable to be one with Eywa, their soul would still exist. confirm *vitra

ask Eywa to do something (Jake "prayed" for help before the battle)
if doing what Jake did is un-Na'vi (Neytiri hints at this), how about non-religious meanings ("implore, beg")?
