CHAPTER TWO: Lesson 5
This next section assumes that we would go home for lunch and it begins with a greeting upon arrival.
Task One: Lunch Time
Here we assume the wife is entering the home where her husband has prepared her lunch.
a.) Wife, greeting/question: Duda ānt’ē (How are you?).
b.) Husband, response: Soga āst’īn, nini k’aji (Good, I am, and you?).
c.) Wife, response: Sini k’aji soga āst’ē (me too, Good, I am).
An alternative from husband, or wife can be:
d.) Edū āst’ē (Bad, I am feeling/doing).
Task Two: Additional cooking phrases and words
By now we should have acquired quite an array of conversational words and phrases that we can utilize in combination with the new stuff we are learning as we move throughout our day.
Here we will learn new words and phrases to expand on the knowledge we acquired from the morning section(s) surrounding kitchen and eating activities.
a.) Wife, question: Yede sīn-t’ehi (What you cooked?).
b.) Husband, response: Tā-zeł (Soup).
c.) Husband. Question: Dīn-bede (You, hungry?).
d.) Wife, Statement: E des-bet, nini k’aji (Yes I’m hungry. How about you?).
e.) Husband, Statement: Sini K'aji des-bet (Yes I’m hungry).
