Word of the Day

dic mbosant nanokens!

( Good morning everyone!)

gen waytas tonipniks gi.

(Today is Friday.)

 

Today we will be looking at something everyone can benefit from.

We will use the verb “to like.”  By looking at the hand out “Klamath nouns, verbs and Non-nouns,” on the first page, on the right-hand side of the page, you will see the verbs. The 7th going down the column is “dicewa.”

This verb means: “like.”

The verb is made from the word “dic” and the suffix “-ewa.”

How many things can you say that you like?

 

Looking at the section on nouns in the same hand out, I stopped counting at 30. That is without using the pronoun for “my.” So there are many more you can do.

The sentence is: ni__(whatever it is that you like)__ dicewa.

The sentence changes when you include the pronoun “gaw.” The sentence: ni wac dicewa. I like horses is a very different sentence from: ni gaw wac dicewa. I like my horse.

ni ____ dicewa. Fill in the blank with anything that you “like.”

If you email me a word that you want to use that is not on the hand out, I will send you the word you can use.
