An early basic description of Na’vi by Paul Frommer is a short grammatical sketch,

Discussion on points of grammar and basic language lessons are presented on Frommer's blog,

The appendix of the so-called "Survival Guide" is the best published source of vocabulary:

Although most of the purported Na’vi in the main text is spurious (though it does include two of the four songs that Frommer translated into Na’vi for Cameron, the Hunting Song and the Weaving Song), the appendix is reasonably accurate, though significantly less reliable and complete than the dictionaries here at Wikibooks. That appendix is a copy of an early draught of Frommer's glossary that he has since modified. Neu "to want", for example, is now new. Some of the words for Na’vi foods which did not make it into the final cut of the film have been reassigned to new meanings, such as kxener "smoke".

The LearnNa'vi community keeps a list of vocabulary with attested usage online here. LearnNa'vi also has a dictionary which may sometimes be more up to date than the one here.
