Yesterday's Tips II
To start, it may be easier to learn the four main bound pronoun sets for; I, you (sg), s/he & it, and they. Then later, gradually introduce yourself to new ones. With these four alone you will be learning eleven different forms. I - tsi- ga- agi- agw-; you - hi, ha, ts-; s/he & it - a- u- uw-; and they - ani- un-.
Cherokee does not use prounouns as we know them, rather it uses 'bound pronouns'. A bound pronoun is a pronoun that is attached directly to the verb stem. There are three catagories of bound pronouns by number; singular, dual, and three or more.
When learning verb or noun bound-pronouns starting with an "o", remember they are non-inclusive; meaning that the person being spoken to is not included. For example: ginali'i (you and I are friends), oginali'i (s/he and I are friends). Check out the verb pages for more examples of how this works. In some forms you will need to add d- or ts- before the non-inclusinve 'o'.
When learning verbs it is important to always learn the first and third person singular (I and she or he forms), otherwise it will be impossible to conjugate the verb correctly.
