BRANCH 6: SENSES

In this Branch we will begin using words which connect us to our senses such as see, hear, smell, and taste. There are two ways to talk about each sense, for example, I see it vs. I see h/her. We will practice the "I" and "You" forms here.

 


nənámihton
I see it

nənòtamən
I hear it

kənámihton
You see it

kənòtamən
You hear it

 

nənámihα
I see h/her

nənòtawα
I hear h/her

 

kənámihα
You see h/her

kənòtawα
You hear her

 

 


 

Here we will demonstrate a simple question and answer with the negative response. For example: Do you see it? I don't see it./ Do you see her? I don't see h/her.

ahtα nənamihtowən

kənòtawα'
