What's the Gaihwi:io?

EDIT: Oh, I guess what you're talking about is this, right?



Yes, Longhouse!

Long time no see Unilang!

Sgę:nǫjih gęh?

Ohswe:gę’ ha’ge:’.Gaya’dago:wah wę̱hni’dade’, hwihs dewahshę: hehsgahawihs agahdędi’. Gayogo̱hno:nǫ’ agadewayę’s! Ohaydǫ̱hsrǫ:dǫ’ agni:nǫ’? lol.

(How are you doing?

I went to Ohsweken. I left on January 25th. I studied Cayuga. I bought a book (?) (I don't know how to incorporate nouns yet which sucks but I think that's right.)

---

Is anybody still interested in Cayuga? What topic should I cover next that's simple?

I'm most definitely still interested. :D

As for a new topic to cover, I'm not sure.

On a completely different note, I notice the Teaching Grammar is now available. I'm going to get a copy this week I think. I hope they post some audio like they did for Wadehwayistanih (I hope I spelled that right, I don't have the book in front of me right now)

I'm still trying to get the other languages I study on some sort of schedule, so I haven't been able to do much with Cayuga lately. I hope to get around to it soon though.

Sorry to clog your thread up.

Sgę:nǫˀ swagwe:gǫh!

Just letting everybody know that there's a new Cayuga keyboard available at www.cayugalanguage.ca . It's a new type of funky layout but I think it works just fine. I still don't know what to write about... I think I'll put together a phrase list soon, like useful Cayuga phrases.

Sgę:nǫ́ˀ swagwe:gǫh!

Like I said I would have a phrase list. A short one for now but I have a lot of time on my hands now, a steady schedule at work so I can post a lot more frequently than before. You can contact me at bennettb110@hotmail.com if you have any questions or something.

Here it is, lemme know if you want more words!

Sgę:nǫ́:ˀ - Hello (peace)
Sgę:nǫjíh gę́h? - How are you? (Do you have peace?)
Nę:di:nís? - And you?
Ęhę́ˀ - Yes
Tęˀ - No
Tę́ˀ dˀesgę:nǫ́ˀ - I do not have peace
Neˀgiˀá:yęˀ, nę:di:nís? - It seems like it, and you?
A:yę:tsǫ́:ˀ, nę:di:nís? - It seems so, and you?
Ęhę́ˀ, néˀ gíˀ a:yę́ˀ. - Yes, it seems so.
Agadagaí:deˀ - I am well.
Aknǫhǫkdá:nih - I am sick
Néˀ giˀ oyá:nreˀ - That's good
Tę́ˀ gwáhs dˀeoyá:nreˀ - That's not good.

Sǫ:náht - Who
Dęˀhoˀdę́ˀ - What
Dó: - What/How much (numerical)
Gaę́: - Where
