Recap #2, Part I: Nouns and Pronouns

I’m splitting this recap into 3 posts, and adding a little, too.

In 49 sentences, we’ve seen the following:

Class I Nouns

boy koda kodna kodava kodnavi
child hɨse hɨsna hɨsava hɨsnavi
girl laki lakina lakyava lakinavi

Kinship terms also belong in Class I. While we haven’t seen any yet, the words koda and laki double as kinship terms, but with differing sessile forms.

N3.SG dɨdɛn da da

Words that are neither nouns or pronouns because they don’t inflect.
These two words are only used as a source or destination:

daka path, way
susi here, there, place

OK? All clear? Questions?
