( Good morning everyone!)

gen waytas wonipniks gi.

(Today is Thursday.)

Before we move on to another topic, I wanted to give you an example of what you can be doing with the Time Element words. I am going to put each of the Time Elements into my demonstration sentence. You can do the same thing for your demonstration sentence. Attached is a hand out on Time Elements and the sound recording of these sentences. There are 8 Time Elements here.

1. once=later
2. 2. ga-ak=long ago
3. ona=yesterday
4. onak=early
5. gen waytas=today
6. amka=maybe
7. at=now
8. mbosant=tomorrow, morning
