"Bee" should be spelt as "Bí".


Bí does exist in Navajo, although it hasn't been introduced in this course. Wiktionary says it is a third-person singular or dual pronoun or a possessive pronoun. (Wiktionary has a nice example sentence, "Łį́į́łgaii éí shicheii bí," meaning "The white horse is my grandfather's."

Bee, on the other hand, is a postposition meaning "with, by means of, or by means of it," and is used in this case to mark the things that she has. Beginners beware that the sounds ii and ee are NOT the same, even if they are in the same tone.


Download navajo keyboard from google. If you don't see the needes letter press down on the basic letter and a group of choices if same letter pops up. Good luck.


I don't understand when to use bee holo, holo and bee for has. It seems random.


I use an european Keyboard and this is how I passed this stage by writing it like that " Shimá Tt'izi dóó telii béé hóló. "


I don't have the longer based 't'


Better to think of it as an L, upper or lower case, with a diagonal line through it, since it's pronounced like a voiceless L.


If you copy from the Discuss page you will. Save it all to a file. Shimá tłʼízí dóó télii bee hólǫ́. łłłłłłłłłłłłłłłłłłłłłłłłłł
