Sorry kȟolá (friends), haven’t updated in a bit.

But I'm here to correct that. :P

Struth did a post on the definite article, so I'll do the indefinite article.

The forms of the article:




RealHypotheticalNegative
Sing.waƞwaƞžíwaƞžíni
PluralAn. Humaneyáetáƞtuwéni
An. Nonhumaneyáetáƞtákuni
Inanimateeyáetáƞtákuni


Notes:
- An. = animate
- The negative forms are formed by adding -ni to the end, which is from šni (if I understand correctly :whistle: ).
- Obviously (I hope :P ) the plural forms mean "some" (the hypothetical forms can also mean "any), and the singular means "a, an."

I don't have a ton of time to post more today, but hopefully by tomorrow or Friday I can post some example sentences, and get into some more verb paradigms.

I've always wondered if that's pronounced /əʔə/, /ə:/, or something else. :hmm:

It could also be /ə.ə/.But I don't think it's pronounced as /əʔə/. :hmm:

I'm not learning the pronunciation at the moment, by the way, just some vocabulary and a little grammar. :)

So, the article čha. I mentioned in the story thread that it's used for relative clauses where the subject is indefinite. Some examples:

Wičháša waŋ slolwáye. - I know a man.
Wičháša waŋ slolwáye kiŋ hí. - The man I know came.
Wičháša waŋ slolwáye čha hí. - A man I know came.

Čha doesn't need to follow a verb and can turn a noun into a clause, such as:

Wičháša waŋ héčhuŋ. - A man did that.
Wičháša kiŋ héčhuŋ. - The man did that.
Wičháša čha héčhuŋ. - It was a man who did that.

And of course, čha can be used with stative verbs as well:

Igmú sápa waŋ awíblukčaŋ. - I'm thinking about a black cat.
Igmú waŋ sápa čha awíblukčaŋ. - I'm thinking about a cat that is black.

Čha can also be used in certain instances where "that" is used in English:

Íyotaka čha waŋbláke. - I saw her/him sit down (/that she/he sat down).
Iyókšiča čha waŋbláke. - I saw that he/she was sad.

Two days left! :partyhat:

Words of the Day:

wažúšteča - n. strawberry
Wazíya - n. 1) the power of the north (in myths takes on the persona of a giant, the first human being on Earth, an old man or a wizard defeated by Fallen Star) 2) Santa Claus

If you're going by the old time table, yes. I've extended the contest for 2 more months, which was backed by popular support. I'm surprised you didn't see that in the discussion thread.
Not that I mind if you want to only do the original month.

Mostly just took notes on the next lesson today.
If I find anything "post-worthy" I'll update later.

Háu mitákuyepi :)

I read about the difference between uŋspé and okíhi. Uŋspé refers to a long term ability or a learned skill.

Wayáwapi uŋmáspe. = I can read./I know how to read.
Wówapi uŋmáspe. = I can write./I know how to write.

Okíhi can be used 1) for expressing an ability to do something at a given moment or under certain circumstances 2) to express permission to do something 3) to describe an offer, or 4) to describe a request.

Óčhičiya owákihi he? – Can I help you?
Yaú oyákihi he? = Can you come?

Word of the Day: gnugnúška - n. grasshopper

Yeah, I am. :partyhat: I only envisioned doing a month when I started, so that's what I'm doing :) Then it's back to my regularly scheduled life. Which is not to say I won't post at all...I just won't be going at the same clip I have been.

Nice updates, Struth! :D

Have not heard of "Okíhi" or "uŋspé" yet, so very new! I really like today's word. :wink:

Sounds like a good plan. I've been slowing down myself.

Well guys, unfortunately I'm going to have to call it quits as far as the contest. I've been finding it hard to keep going with 4 languages. And considering that Lakota isn't necessary for my immediate academic plans, it's being put on the side burner for now. :(

But I'll be back to studying it (or another NAIL) soon enough. :)

Solider on, everyone else!
