Something told me you'd like that! :D

Háu mitákuyepi! Wahí yeló! :D

Today, I learned about asking/giving one's age. Some examples:

Waníyetu nitóna he? - How old are you (s.) ?

For numbers 1-10, the personal affixes go directly onto the number:

Waníyetu niwíkčemna. - You (s.) are ten years old.
Waníyetu uŋzáptaŋpi. - We are five years old.

For multiples of ten (to 100), affixes go onto the second number:

Waníyetu wikčémna uŋtópa. - You and I are forty years old.

And for teens and numbers in between multiples of ten, "aké" has to be included.

Waníyetu wikčémna amákešaglóǧaŋ. - I am eighteen years old.
Waníyetu wikčémna tób aníkezáptaŋ. - You are forty-five years old.
Waníyetu wikčémna záptaŋ akéšaglóǧaŋ. - He/she is fifty-eight years old.

Lastly, the affixes aren't used on inanimate objects.

Hená čháŋ kiŋ waníyetu opáwiŋǧe núpa. - Those trees are two hundred years old.

Háu mitákuyepi!

Today I read about Lakhota kinship terms. Also, the Word of the Day: Mílahaŋska Tȟamákȟočhe - n. the United States

This is interesting because it comes from the words míla ("knife), háŋskA ("to be long"), and tȟamákȟočhe ("his/her/their country/land"). The name comes from the ceremonial sabers used by American army officers during the 18th and 19th centuries. Many tribes (not just the Lakhota) referred to Americans as "long knives" and the British as "red coats."

Mílahaŋska heníčha he? - Are you (s.) American?

Read about the dative and benefactive conjugation of verbs today, but not really feeling inspired to write examples. Bleh.

I can't wait to see more then, and might be some examples of the above later? :blush: I'm learning from two sources now, so I guess I gotta add you to the source list! xD

Weird word of the day, by the way. :lol:

Another entry - brought to you by the letter ȟ. :silly:

And now for indefinite articles! Hurray! :partyhat: Lakhota has three indefinite articles (for the singular anyway; different articles are used to refer to the plural):

waŋ - refers to something real, or something whose existence the speaker is aware of
waŋží - refers to something hypothetical, or something existence the speaker is unsure of
waŋžíni - refers to something that doesn't exist

To illustrate, some examples:

Šúŋkawakȟáŋ waŋ bluhá. - I have a horse.
Šúŋkawakȟáŋ waŋží luhá he? - Do you (s.) have a horse?
Šúŋkawakȟáŋ waŋžíni bluhá šni. - I don't have a horse.

Generally, the articles are used in different situations, but there are times when there is overlap. Consider the following:

Míla waŋ olé. - He/she/it is looking for a (particular) knife.
Míla waŋží olé. - He/she/it is looking for a (any) knife.

Kaylee wrote:Tó šičʼéši (or would it be Šičʼéši tó?)!


I don't think it matters; I think it's comparable to the difference between "Thanks, K," and "K, thanks," but I'm not sure.

Ugh...we'll see. It's complicated and covered by several pages alone in the dictionary :o

Another useful bit of grammar brought to you by your friendly, neighborhood uŋkčéǧila tȟáŋka :wink:

The comparative. There are several ways to express the comparative in Lakhota depending on the degree of difference, but today I reviewed the word isáŋm.

isáŋm wašté - better
isáŋm šíča - worse
isáŋm tȟáŋka - larger, bigger

Nísaŋm maháŋske. - I am taller than you.
Mísaŋm háŋske. - He/she is taller than me.
Wičhísaŋm háŋske. - He/she is taller than they are.

Word of the Day: pȟahíŋ - n. porcupine

The Internet. :P

There are some links at the bottom of this page, which also has useful information about the language. And this page in French is also very handy. 8-)

Hi!

I'm sorry I haven't answered. I'm still trying to get my hands on some of the Cherokee books. So although I'm checking NAILC every day, I've still got nothing to post. :|
I hope I'll get the book soon enough, otherwise I'll try to post something I got on the internet.

I'm really sorry,

Hey, don't worry about it. I'm contemplating extending the NAILC anyway.

Regardless, you can use the thread even after the NAILC if you want. :wink:
