Here are some resources helpful to those studying the Na'vi language.

Canonical Sources

Material published by Paul Frommer or officially tied to the movie.

  • Some highlights of Na'vi - A post by Paul Frommer to the Language Log blog on December 19, 2009 describing many aspects of the language. Written for linguists, very technical.
  • Avatar: A Confidential Report on the Biological and Social History of Pandora aka "The Activist Survival Guide" or "ASG" (Amazon link, Browsable link from publisher) - An official companion book to the movie; it includes a Na'vi-English word list and two Na'vi songs with English translations. It also includes an account of animal and plant life containing some "Na'vi" words that violate what we know of Na'vi phonetics.

Comprehensive Guides

Pronunciation Guides

Grammar and Syntax Guides

Dictionaries, Wordlists, and Phrasebooks

Audio

Other Learning Aids

Forums, Mailing Lists, Discussion Groups, etc.

Media Stories About the Na'vi Language - Print

Print stories often contain quotations from Paul Frommer discussing the language or providing translations of Na'vi words and phrases. Information about the language coming directly from Frommer can be considered canonical, although the printed versions of the stories sometimes contain incorrectly transcribed words.

Media Stories About the Na'vi Language - Audio and Video

Audio and video stories often include Paul Frommer discussing the language or providing translations of Na'vi words and phrases. Information about the language coming directly from Frommer can be considered canonical, although in most cases we do not have canonical transcriptions. Information coming from others (as in the ABC News Nightline segment) should not necessarily be considered canonical, as Cameron and the actors could potentially be mispeaking or mispronouncing the Na'vi.
