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.
