Conversational Navajo Lesson: Emotion Vocabulary


This video is essentially a continuation of the previous video called, “How to Start Conversations in the Navajo Language.” Essentially, I introduced the phrase, “Haa ánít’é?” which means, “How are you doing?”

Of course it isn’t quite useful if you don’t know how to respond to this question. So in this video, I provided the different ways in which you can respond to this question along with providing some vocabulary words for various emotions in Navajo.

In addition to this, I’ve also included the basic ways you can respond to, “Haa lá ánít’é?” by responding with:

Bil nisin (sleepy)
Dichin nisin (hungry)
Dibáá’ nisin (thirsty)

Though, I’m grateful that someone took the time to translate the emotions on that “How Are You Doing Today?” chart in Navajo, it is more useful to have it in 1st person as opposed to 3rd person so you can learn the emotions. I hope you like this video… enjoy!
