Why We Love Paul Frommer

Click here for Paul’s profile.

I’m going to tell you why we love Paul Frommer, the linguist and creator of the Na’vi language in the film “Avatar.”

1. He is a brilliant, creative, gentle man.
2. He was in the Peace Corps.
3. He’s a one-man Tower of Babel.
4. He’s half-blue (see photo).

Is it easy being blue? Maybe.

We honor Paul with a Haiku in English:

Na’vi talk and live
In harmony with nature
Paul gave them their words.
