"Good morning and thank you."
Translation:Yáʼátʼééh abiní dóó ahéheeʼ.
I took extensive courses in Navajo and have learned from a professor of the language who happens to be my aunt. The correct spelling should be Yá'át'ééh 'abíní dóó 'ahxéhee'.
I am also a native speaker.
That's interesting! But I try to keep in mind that Navajo speakers in New Mexico have a bit of a different dialect than you would hear from those in Arizona; example, my mother has never seen it spelled with an "x" and neither have I :0
Well, I have done extensive coursework and did a lot of writing assignments.
I learned to spell from a great instructor who knows how to spell our language. (:
I have also taken a Navajo coarse. My teacger emphasized to us that Navajo bis a spoken language more so than a written. She said she wants proper apelling in her class, but wouldn't take away from alternate spelling. Both the x and without x can be proper spellings.
This language is a little tricky for me. But I accept a challenge. :)
I: Yáʼ, GOOD MORNING brother, where are you átʼ?
Ééh? I think I am at a place called Abiní?
Abiní. That is not far, I'll pick you up. Do you want to watch Scooby dóó when we get home?
"A hé heeʼ … that show is funny. Sure. THANK YOU :)"
II: Doctor Hibberts laugh: "Ahéheeʼ" Thank you for the joke.
Yáʼ át ééh abiní dóó ahéhee.ʼ

Yáʼátʼééh abiní dóó ahéheeʼ.
Why is my response incorrect? My answer was Ya at eeh abini doo ahehee. Good morning and thank you. What's wrong.
