☞ Don’t get hung up on grammar information. Grammar is not something
that needs to be memorized or fully understood. It is through the
exercises in the lesson material that you will learn how to understand
and speak Cherokee, not by memorizing rules and word parts.
Clitics are special word endings that are used to add or change the
meanings of existing words. They are a very powerful feature of the
Cherokee language and allow you to express a great many complicated
things in short order. It is important to note that these endings cannot
be used alone. They must always be combined with an existing word to
form a new word.
