This app is designed to help you acquire the Cherokee language though the use of pictures representing actions, states of being, and so forth. The app closely follows the material in the book "Cherokee Language Lessons 1". The book is recommended to get the most use out of this app.
The following indicates the main meanings for some of the more common forms of “is” as found in the text.
The words ᎯᎠ (this/these) and ᎥᏍᎩᎾ (that/those) can also be used to indicate “he”, “him”, “she”, “her”, “they”, or “them” when context makes it clear that a human or animate being is being referred to:
To ask what time it is, you either ask “how much time has progressed” or “how many times the clock has struck in hours”.
These pronouns are used to specify the whom but not the who of actions.
They do not specify the doer.
Here are my collected notes for use when translating texts from English into Cherokee.
