I don't know where to ask this so I'll just give it a shot here.

I saw the sentence: Katimma ish ia tuk? and then Ikhvnanchi yvt katimma ia tuk?, and my question is could I say: Ish vt katimma ia tuk?

Also what's the difference between:

  • Katimma ish añya?
  • Katimma ish ia?

Not gonna lie, the Choctaw Nation language lessons are alright, but in some lessons it's written so poorly.

I don’t know if you’ll find answers to your questions here, but you could contact any of the people shown on this page for the School of Choctaw Language, who would be more likely to be able to answer your questions.

Do you have a copy of Broadwell’s A Choctaw Reference Grammar (ISBN 0-8032-1315-8), or are you near a library that could get it via interlibrary loan? Perhaps that would help with your studies.
