I think audio will be added eventually. Navajo is relatively new on Duolingo and since this is the beta version that means they're still working on it. Just the other day I noticed some new Hawaiian audio for the first time, so I'm sure Navajo audio is on the way as well.

    No, that's the pronunciation of the first person. We're using the second person here. I'm assuming you just change the "sh" to "l" and keep the same stresses?

      Thank you. That really is different. Makes sense, though.

      Is the last word a combination with the ni meaning your instead of you?

      "yinilyé". Navajo is an agglutinive language. Does that create an overlap between nouns and verbs? I wonder if "yinilyé" would be more like "you are called"? This little piece of the language is so different from any other language I have ever learned that it challenges my language learning techniques. Still, I can sort of imagine my life if I had lived it as a Navajo. I love Navajo jewelry and Native American art generally. Learning any language has to be an act of love.
