They call me Mr. After being contacted by Lightstorm Entertainment , James Cameron's own production company, Frommer was hired to create the Na'vi language for Avatar after a ninety minute interview with Cameron. Requested to build a language with a consistent sound system phonology , word-building rules morphology , rules for putting words together into phrases and sentences syntax , and a vocabulary lexicon sufficient for the needs of the script. Cameron also requested that the language be 'pleasant sounding and appealing to cinema audiences'.
The New York Edition
Taking inspiration from the 30 to 40 words Cameron had already creating for place names and character names, Frommer developed the phonetics and phonology of the language - 'the sounds that would and would not appear in the language, along with the rules for combining sounds into syllables and words and the pronunciation rules that might in certain circumstances change one sound into another'.
Throughout the production process, Frommer had to be aware that although the language was alien, it had to be spoken by human actors.
Frommer also designed the morphology structure of words and syntax the structuring of sentences and words for the language. Frommer included structures and processes that were relatively rare in human languages but that could be acquired by humans as the language was used on another planet. For example, the morphology for the language was achieved exclusively through infixes, less common than prefixes and suffixes in human languages.leondumoulin.nl/language/book/of-vinegar-and-honey-part.php

Relying on the actors to communicate the stresses and emphasis of words of the language, Frommer meet with the Na'vi speaking actors such as Sam Worthington and Zoe Saldana and supplied them with MP3 recordings of the language as well as coaching the actors in specific areas of communication in the language.
Since Avatar's release, Frommer has received numerous emails from avid fans of the language, with suggestions for improvement and expansion, as well as numerous websites growing with learning Na'vi functions and lessons. This culminated in a regularly updating Soundcloud channel The Sounds of Pandora , which features audio tips on pronunciation from Frommer. Frommer has unofficially confirmed that he will be involved with the sequels.
