Word of the Day

dicmbosant nanokens!

Good morning everyone!

gen waytas ndanniks gi.

Today is Wednesday.

Today we will look at another noun suffix. This suffix is highly used. It means: in, on, or at. The suffix is -dat. This suffix has one odd point. If the word it is attached to ends in a consonant other than the letter “k,” “s,” or “t” it becomes another consonant. An example is: the word for Sunday=sandi. sandi + -dat becomes sandiyyat. It means: on Sunday.

A regular use is: lapniks + -dat becomes lapniksdat. This means: on Tuesday. So, in a sentence this is: sandiyyat ni witemak sle-a. On Sunday I saw a bear cub.
