There's where you're suppose to say "a". :lol:
You're too honest, Vijay-kun.

And come to think of it, that's two words, too, not one...I wonder what "apayagwawuk" means by itself. :hmm: Maybe 'they drink' or something, idk.

I was actually assuming that noohteh was the pronoun. Then again, I know shit of Michif.

Nope, there's no pronoun, only suffixes.

Noohteh awpawgwan [nʊhˈte ɑpɑˈgwɑn] = I'm thirsty
Noohteh apayagwawuk [nʊhˈte ɑpɑˈgwejəˌwək] = they're thirsty

I'm using the spellings they have on learnmichif.com, which are super-idiosyncratic. :lol:
