Some Highlights of Na'vi

I was fascinated by this article about Na'vi, the alien language composed for the movie "Avatar."  It is a subtle, flexible, and intricate tongue.  I am strongly reminded of some Native American languages, which can stack and weave affixes in ways that seem odd to English speakers.  I can't quite get my mind around Na'vi yet ... I need to hear it in my ears ... but there's something familiar about it.
