Would like audio as well

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.

      Thank you. I am a beginner in Navajo and I'd like to speak it correctly instead of murdering it.

      "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.

      Learning a language is looking iñto another culture. What's "agglutinive?

      July 27, 2019


      I'm not a professional linguist. The basic unit of meaning is called a "morpheme". In an agglutinave language morphemes are strung together without changes in form. In an inflective language like maybe English, morphemes can change tone or sound. I'm trying to find examples on google. Yupik tuntussuqatarniksaitengqiggtuq: tuntu-ssur-qatar-ni-ksaite-ngqiggte-uq "He had not yet said again that he was going to hunt reindeer." REINDEER-HUNT-future-SAY-negation-AGAIN-third.person.singular.indicative. I'm going to post another one.
