Intro Skill - A Sentence Compilation/List.

Hi there! Here is a compilation of all the sentences from the Intro skill in the Navajo course. I’ve only included sentences with more than one word however, as I wanted to focus on more complicated sentences. So you won’t see sentences with only one word like “Hello”, “Thank you”, and “Goodbye”.

Lesson 1

  • Ahéheeʼ shimá. – Thank you mother.
  • Yáʼátʼééh shimá. – Hello mother.
  • Hágoóneeʼ shimá. – Goodbye mother.

Lesson 2

  • Yáʼátʼééh abiní! – Good morning!
  • Yáʼátʼééh dóó ahéheeʼ. – Hello and thank you.
  • Haash yinilyé? – What is your name?
  • Yáʼátʼééh dóó haash yinilyé. – Hello and what is your name.
  • Yáʼátʼééh abiní haash yinilyé? – Good morning, what is your name?
  • Ni haash yinilyé? – What is your name?
  • Yáʼátʼééh abiní shimá. – Good morning mother.
  • Yáʼátʼééh abiní dóó ahéheeʼ. – Good morning and thank you.

Lesson 3

  • Naat'áaniinééz góó déyá. – I am going to Shiprock.
  • Daʼ Naat'áaniinééz góó diníyá? – Are you going to Shiprock?
  • Shimá Naat'áaniinééz góó déyá. – Mother, I am going to Shiprock.

I hope you found this a useful resource. If people find this useful I'll do a sentence compilation for every skill in the Navajo course. Let me know what you think! :-)

Small corrections:

abiní should be abíní

diníyá should be díníyá

yinilyé should be yinílyé

-góó ("to") should be written attached to the previous word

Do not forget to attach the ’ (glottal stop) preceding the vowel "a" in ’abíní. :) But otherwise, t’áá ’ákót’é.

If you can continue doing a compilation it will help me greatly in creating videos for pronunciation and correction of the words and phrases.
