"She is eating a tomato."

Translation:Chʼil Łichxíʼí yį́yą́.

March 17, 2019



How are we supposed to get through these without a Navajo keyboard? The ones available in the Google Play Store don't appear to be up to task.


Some of the words for phone app users need to be typed differently. My phone allows me to pass by typing: yí'yá' instead of having those special characters that don't come up on my phone, nor thru my adjusted keyboard settings.


the unique characters (accents and gutterals) are available on the screen. It's just a pain to switch to go back and forth between the keyboard and the screen.


How can Duolingo expect us to learn Navajo if there is no sound?!?!?!


I'm having the same problem. I keep getting errors because I don't have access to the special characters


The special characters are on the screen under the fill-in area. Just point and click on the needed letter.


Thats not the problem. Some phone app users dont have the pre programmed characters on their keyboard dispite already having looked thru the key options.


I answered: Ch'il Lichxi'i yíyá

and it said I was wrong. What did I do wrong?


You put an "L" instead of the unique letter "ł" in the Navajo alphabet.


I write the answer correctly and it still says that I'm wrong


I passed by spelling it: Ch'il łichxí'í yí'yá'


the spelling of lichxi is questionable. Because I've seen it spelt lichii.


Why is the second word in the answer capitalized?


Google has an keyboard for download called GBoard and it has a Navajo keyboard with ALL the extra characters that makes texting the words out WAY easier. It even has the settings to suggest the navajo word you are typing making it one thousand times easier when forgetting the extra letters or anything. Hope this helps.


Copy and paste the properly formated "yiya" from Wictionary to bypass the issue


...and I do NOT have a typo!!! Duolingo provided the word for tomato, then I wrote yiya using the special letters below, and the answer said I had a typo...???


Yiya. Is my keyboard that i guess do not work with this word


Had to put yiya' to get it correct


This is literally impossible without the keyboard. I have the right letters


This answer is the closest thing that my smart phone can do.


The dictionary hint gives Ch'il OR Łichxíʼí, instead of Chʼil Łichxíʼí.


This is not a good program. It clearly does not recognize that I do not havd the Navajo keyboard on tbis phone yo work with. If I write it the same way 3 tines it should move on. How do I move to the next level uf it won't let me get passed the spelling issues.


Does anyone know why "bił" isn't required for this sentence?
