Hágoónee' sounds a little like "have a good day"
@Marleen84722 that's a good question- I'm wondering the same thing. What purpose does the Apostrophe serve at the end?
And does it have a sound?
It's a glottal stop. It's like the hitch in the voice in "uh-oh."
Why do you need the ' at the end of a word? What sound does it symbolize?
It is a gladal stop that means a sudden stop
Hágoónee' means good bye not see you later hágoóshilaá means see u later
I think it means both, no offense
I'm Navajo and Hágoónee' is used when you know you won't see that person again.
Thank you. You need to report so DuoLIngo corrects the misinformation. Hagoonee.
Just reported on 06.02.2022. I hope they'll fix this error soon. :)
I answered: Hágoóneeʼ shimá.
It said Another Correct Solution: Hágoóneeʼ shimá.
I can't tell the difference between them...?
I am having the same problem on this and other answers.
How do you put accents on your responses? I keep getting marked wrong because I can't get the accent marks right. Ugh
When I put the apostrophes ' in the right place, it accepts my answer without the other accent marks.
wow, with a point under the "é " !!!
ahehee. of you commented on mine, well, my browser has the navajo alphabet. :)
