Today we will begin making sentences in Klamath in earnest.
We will have a short list of verbs and nouns with which to work from.
VERBS SUBJECT PRONOUNS NOUNS
sle-a=see ni=I yayna=mountain
domna=hear i=you (s) goge=river
dyema=be hungry sa=they pas=food
ambodga=be thirsty nad=we lilhanks=deer
bonwa=drink ad=all of you sabas=sun
Now we pick a subject pronoun. That is a pronoun that we can use as the subject of the sentence-We have the sane distinction in English-I/me.
Let’s choose sa=they. Now we pick a verb. Let’s choose dyema=be hungry.
Our sentence is done. sa dyema.
