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
