    four is spelled dį́į́ʼ according to Wiktionary, Omniglot and other online sources. Reporting it as a typo.

    And tááʼ ends with a glottal stop.

    Not just online sources here (though they confirm it). This is how I learned them when I studied Navajo.

    I typed 5 in Navajo using the second hint spelled ashdla' with the glottal stop and it said it was a typo.

    Same with me. The only thing i can figure is ashdla' must only be used when referring to money or something....??

    The hints are like that in all the courses I've studied so far. So I try to choose the correct one. It's not systemic to the Navajo course. And I use that as a learning tool: Okay, which one of the two is it? Multiple choice. It makes you think, notice. Did that word have an accent over the first o in holo or two accents (one over each o)? I do the same in French and Spanish and Czech.
