Yes. Shiyáázh for female speakers.

How do you say "son"? (Not my son)


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Judorange123

Ayeʼ.

Like all other kinship terms, use shi- for my, ni- for your (sg), bi- for his/her/its, and a- for someoneʼs.

Ayeʼ / amá / atsilí: someoneʼs son / mother / younger brother

Shiyeʼ / shimá / shitsilí: my...
