The Na'vi language is a language that was made for the Na'vi in the 2009 film Avatar. It is an invented language. This means a person created it; no one grows up speaking it. Only one person can really speak the Na'vi language. One website has been known to help people learn Na'vi.

History[change | edit source]

The first Na'vi words were made by the professor Paul Frommer in 2005 for the film. When they released the movie in 2009, the vocabulary increased to a thousand words despite the understanding of its grammar was limited to the language's creator.

Many people are learning the language. Websites like Learn Na'vi[1] have many learning materials and a forum to learn with others.[2]
