finished a round of reviewing my vocabulary in Lnuismk this time around and learned how to say 'hi' in Seneca as well.
I need to remember the following terms somehow:awa'qi'kn
- either a variant of or an alternative to the abovekalqwasiet
Because I'm having so much trouble remembering them, even though I know waqnji'j
is literally 'little knife'.
Dumb mnemonic time!
I guess I could imagine Donald Duck carrying a knife and suddenly finding it to be crooked and going "a-WAAAK!" (him doing something like this on Ducktales
). Then he tries to straighten it out and goes "eeeeEEE" and then pushes it into place going "...[gn̩]!"
Then I could imagine an alternative Donald Duck (an imposter has appeared in an issue of Donald Duck
before) witnessing what just happened and going "wak! Ahhh..." (waqa'
...), then noticing that the knife in his gunny (...qani
...) sack is also not quite straight, so he goes "[gn̩]!" as he straightens it out as well: waqa'qanikn
The sunset is the "mouth" to "tomorrow," "yet" does not signal the arrival of a new day. 'Tomorrow' (and 'yesterday') in Hindi and Urdu is [kəl], and 'mouth' in Pashto is something like [ɣwaʐ]. Lnuismk doesn't have [ʐ]; closest thing it has to that is [z], so if you put those together, you get [kalɣwaz], and then combined with "yet," you get kalqwasiet
If I get someone to make things clean, then that is work I make
. (Also, the first syllable looks a bit like the word for 'knife', I guess, so it could have something to do with cleaning stuff off a surface that I cut with a knife? Idk
All four of these words must break down morphologically somehow.
But oh well.
