Uhca bargobihtát / small exercise ;)

Postby nighean-neonach » 2007-11-05, 21:08

I was doing some repetition and playing around with simple words and sentences today on the train back from uni.

So, if you are working with "Davvin" or "Gulahalan", you might like to have a look at this. I've tried to use words and grammar from lessons 1-8 in Davvin, and 1-6 in Gulahalan, although there might be the odd bit that does not occur until later, but if you have worked through those lessons you should be able to figure it out :)

So, you could consider it a small test for your own skills, or just to practice, so if you like, just write your translations below, and I'll check them for you later, or maybe you'll even spot some mistakes (I hope not :shock: )

Have fun!

Did you notice the large translation exercises I posted that cover Davvin? No-one's tried them yet and it would save you basically copying them :D

I'm too young and pretty to go to prison, but here are the exercises from the first chapter of Davvin 1:

Translate into Sámi:

1) Good morning!
2) Good morning (reply)!
3) How's it going?
4) It's going well.
5) What's your name?
6) My name is Juvvá.
7) This is my bus.
Cool It's certainly good.
9) Who's that coming from over there?
10) That's surely my good wife.
11) What do you hear?
12) It's definitely an aeroplane.
13) Where is it going?
14) It's flying (to) there.
15) You stay (to) there.
16) Where are you doing?
17) Is there a toilet?
1Cool It's outside.
19) You can definitely hear an aeroplane.
20) Juvvá is the one who hears an aeroplane.

For now I'm still working on the other chapters' translations, and then I'll send them back to the man for correction, so it'll be a while before I get 100% correct answers. Enjoy! :D

I have 5 pages of these, so... :D

Yeah well... what I was trying was something that combines Davvin and Gulahalan and covers several lessons, to help people check their vocabulary and combination skills, and to encourage people to build their own sentences later on. For me it was just repetition practice :)

The next one (soon to come, probably at the weekend) will be about Davvin 9-12 and Gulahalan 7-9, so it will be a bit more advanced, and it will go on like that...
I don't know if anyone is interested at all, but never mind ;)

Currently I'm talking about the lessons in Davvin 1
(book 1, lessons 9-12, for example) :)

What is this "Davvin" course? I've found a link for it here, but I'm not sure if it's online or not, and if it's online, if it's free or not. :/

It's a series of textbooks + audio cassettes / CDs, originally developed together with a radio course back in the 80s, I think. That was connected to that "brevkurs" thing as well... I've never bothered about that, I've just used the textbooks and CDs. They are really nice, though slowly paced (very little new vocabulary in each lesson, grammar introduced in tiny bits). If you want something more modern, I'd recommend the "Gulahalan" course which is available online as well as in books http://www4.ur.se/gulahalan/
There is also another more recent series of textbooks which is called "Cealkke Dearvvuodaid" - I don't know those yet but I was going to buy them soon.

Ok then, I'll try the Gulahalan first.
