księżyc - Gayogo̱hó:nǫ’

Postby księżycowy » 2014-12-26, 10:39

Ok, time to make a new thread! You can still smell the new language smell! :P

Anywho, this is my personal thread for sharing notes/questions/whatever about Cayuga.

So far I've gone over lessons 3 & 4 a little and picked up the following:

w- and o- mean "it" (it will be interesting to learn which to use when. If my memory doesn’t fail me as mush as I think it does, I believe that o- is used with nouns. I think I remember reading that from something about Cayuga, or maybe it was Oneida. So, it that’s true I would guess that w- is used with verbs.)

The example given in lesson 3 is:
w- ęhnihsri:yó: -> wę̱hnihsri:yó:
it - nice day -> it [is a] nice day

-gǫ: -> in
For example:
ganada -gǫ: -> ganadagǫ:
town - in -> in town

-geh and -hneh -> at
-geh is used with consonant sounds at the end of a word
-hneh is used with vowel sounds
For example:
Rexgeh -> at Rex’
Amyhneh -> at Amy’s
BUT
Petegeh -> at Pete’s (because the ’e’ at the end isn’t pronounced, so it ends in a consonant sound)
(They used names as examples, but I assume you could probably use other nouns as well. Like ganadahneh -> at town. Though I don’t know that for sure.)

Good luck with learning Cayuga!

I don't know whether I'll end up learning it myself. If I do, though, I'm sure this thread will turn out to be helpful, so thanks. :)

Hey Ksiezyc, did you see the new Teaching Grammar on the cayuga language website? It's pretty good!
