DISCLAIMER: As I have said before, I am not going to "teach" anything here. I strongly suggest that if you are interested in learning Greenlandic you get some of the materials listed in the other topic.
I am going to start a few topics on basic grammar patterns, and in this topic here you will find some simple words you need to practice those patterns.
I'm doing it like this because I think this way it will be the most concise and clearly arranged. More words can be added to this topic bit by bit, and the other topics will just present a certain pattern each, which can then be practiced (or questions can be asked about it).
The following words are class 1 nouns, and I give the plural form with each as well.
atuarfik, atuarfiit = school
biili, biilit = car
arnaq, arnat = woman
angut, angutit = man
imaq, imat = sea
qaqqaq, qaqqat = mountain
kangerluk, kangerluit = fjord
pisiniarfik, -fiit = shop
ukiaq = autumn
unnuk, unnuit = evening
oqaluttuaq, oqaluttuat = story
mittarfik, -fiit = airport
kuuk, kuut = river
nuliaq, nuliat = wife
ui, uit = husband
qimmeq, qimmit = dog
ikinngut, ikinngutit = friend
iffiaq, iffiat = bread
Please don't use this topic for anything not directly referring to the words. Please do not add random words (especially if you are not sure that they are Greenlandic!). Please do not ask for random words, I am going to keep to class 1 nouns for a while, for grammar reasons.
