Today I’m going to tell you why we love Paul Frommer, the linguist and creator of the Na’vi language in the film “Avatar.” Is it easy being blue? Maybe.
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).
5 He INVENTED A LANGUAGE!!
And next week, we’re going to post a new video of Paul reading a haiku poem in Na’vi (look for it!). For now, we honor him with one of our own in English:
Na’vi talk and live
In harmony with nature
Paul gave them their words.
So watch Paul’s videos, follow his links and we promise that you’ll love him as we do. And if you like to haiku, write one about Paul and post it in the comments. We’ll highlight the best ones in a separate post (and put them up on our refrigerator!).
