Word of the Day

Because of the fire in the area, the tribe was closed for a week. This makes it a little difficult to pick up where we ended. But, we ended with how to make a yes-or-no question. Today we are going to show what a good response looks like.

Even in English, when someone asks you a yes-or-no question, a good response is to repeat the question as well as to say yes-or-no.

So we have the statement and the question: I see the mountain. Do you see the mountain. The response is: Yes, I see the mountain (or no).

ni yayna sle-a. dal i yayna sle-a?

ii, ni yayna sle-a.

To prove that you understand the question and are responding to that question, repeat the question as a statement.
