"Maternal" is not one of the words I can select from the word bank, so the closest I can get to the correct answer is "Hello my mom grandpa" which is not right at all.
Under "another correct solution" it gives "Hello, maternal grandfather."
But when I put "hello, grandfather" first time it told me it was wrong because I did not put 'my' in front of grandfather.
Seems to be missing some options for correct solutions.
Yáʼátʼééh! Of course yes! The variations are still missing. The Beta course is intended to call for Beta testers to add these missing sentences using the report button. :)
Yá'át'ééh, I was wondering if "maternal" is part of "shicheii." Or if "Hello, grandpa" should be a correct option. I know " shi" means "I" or "me" and that adding shi as part of a word makes it "my." I was not sure if something similar was happening with maternal, and I am hesitant to report this if I might be wrong.
ElderAsher, I'm not sure if I understand what you mean by "passes the question". I was thinking you meant that the answer was acceptable. Could you please elaborate on what other answers should also be acceptable? Thank you.
To finish my statement, why does duo differentiate between Grandpa and Grandfather
I don't know enough about Navajo culture to know if one normally includes "my" in addressing a family member (it seems to be included in the person's title) to show respect.
But then you don't know that unless the title is translated to English, so maybe my question doesn't make sense. (???)
Since i haven't seen the word for paternal yet, can i assume the "shi" represents "maternal"?
