Tʼááłáʼí or tááłáʼí? Sometimes it's written one way, sometimes the other.

It is and always will be, t'ááłá'í. There are two glottal stops in this word, the first being the glottalized "t" and the last being the glottal between the vowels /a/ and /e/ (: I hope that answers your question.

Thanks - in some cases it has been misspelt in the the exercises (or hints), but no doubt that will get corrected in due course.

'Aoo', lą́'ąą/You're welcome! (: I will be making more videos on spelling on my YT channel also.

https://youtu.be/a3CY11K2dJw Here is a link to one of my videos explaining a form of "to go". We have many ways to say movement like Russian. However, unlike Spanish we can't just say "ir (a)".
