BRANCH 7: GOOD AND NOT SO GOOD

Now we will use the same senses but talk about them in a different way. The words change when you are describing the way a certain sense is... but notice the similar beginnings and endings on words. Again we will see two methods of speaking about "it" vs "s/he."


 "It"

wəlí-nαkʷat
it looks good

wəlíhtαkʷat
it sounds good

wəlí-mahte
it smells good

wəlíhpokat
it tastes good

mačí-nαkʷat
it looks bad

mačíhtαkʷat
it sounds bad

mačí-mahte
it smells bad

mačíhpokat
it tastes bad

 

 


 

"S/HE"

 

wəlí-nαkʷəso
s/he looks good

wəlíhtαkʷəso
s/he sounds good

wəlí-mahso
s/he smells good

wəlíhpokəso
s/he tastes good

mačí-nαkʷəso
s/he looks bad

mačíhtαkʷəso
s/he sounds bad

mačí-mahso
s/he smells bad

mačíhpokəso
s/he tastes bad
