Avatar fanatics everywhere rejoice! USC linguistics professor Paul Frommer wants to make Na'vi an official language and it sounds a whole lot better than Klingon. Avatar is big and there hasn't been a science fiction-based pop culture following this grand since George Lucas helped to form the cult of Jedi.

Don't worry if you can't get the Avatar vernacular down as fast as other Pandora lovers, you can pick up your own Na'vi pocket guide online.

Implications - The influence of Avatar extends far beyond James Cameron's wallet. Frommer's efforts to make Na'vi an official language are backed up by his claim that it has more than a thousand words and is still growing. The unusual language has no pocket guide, but learning the language is at the hands of true fans.
