Navajo Word of the Day!!
First, I want to give a huge thank you and a shout out to Byron Shorty, the creator of a fantastic website called Navajo Word of the Day.
I am quite happy to plug his website because he's doing an awesome job and has kindly agreed to let me (poach his work) teach you a few words.
You can find the website here www.navajowotd.com.
Go on, I dare you to visit and learn something new. He has something called "sound cloud" which is an excellent tool for linguistic nerds like me. I can go there and get shamed in my pronouncition.
Where I try to repeat things after him and sound real good.
So, our first word is "shik'is".
It's the word for "friend".
Now, you try it. Go ahead. I'll wait..
Did you try to say it??
Now go visit his website and have fun AND learn something new!!
(yes, I know that's wrong, Byron and Kiersti, but I don't have the proper accent things on this blog!)
