Summary:   Kaltxì

In June, I posted a link to the survey I was conducting with Na'vi speakers
in the Query section of this list-serv. I have now completed the analysis
of the first ten questions in the Na'vi Research Study. The report is now
available for download. Analysis of questions 11-20 will be happening over
the next few months as well.

You can access the report on my website:
The file is called ''Report on Na'vi Research © Christine Schreyer (October
2011)'' and it is below a description of the research itself. I will be
presenting some of these results at the American Anthropology Association's
annual conference in Montreal, QC, Canada on Wednesday, November 16th, 2011
at 8:45pm.

Thank you,
