"My son has a dog."
Translation:Shíyeʼ bee łééchąąʼí.
Let's continue to encourage Duolingo to move forward with this beta course. And let's remain patient. The more interest is shown, the more feasible what we want will come about. I was speaking Navajo at a restaurant to a friend. To me this is a lot of fun and very rewarding to understand more about the Navajo people. I now would like to go visit Shiprock and the Navajo Nation.
We could also set up a regular weekly Navajo event. Let's get the names of all the interested parties, and pick some dates. I will make a general post about it in the Navajo main thread.
Here is my deck! I did not add all the sentences, but I think I will do. Also, I need to add some words from the last skills. I am still revising some spellings, especially numbers, because there are some differences with other sites as NavajoWOTD.com or Wiktionary. I also try to add some additional translations from these pages.
Navajo course (Duolingo):
European Keyboard but solved anyway, written this way " Shiye bee tééchaa'i ". & when adding an apostroph/accent, however, to the e of "Shiye" it must hundred percently right. The double a's were recognized too even they look different, I think that depends more on how the letters will be pronounced - just a thesis
Why is bee in the middle rather than at the end? I thought basic Navajo syntax was SOV. So what is supposed to be different here? Extremely confused, especially without any kind of Tips & Notes, and no one in this thread has provided an explanation as yet. Hope there might be someone reading this who can.
