The WORDS that mean "How are you doing?": Hait'Ã¡o naninÃ¡? or Haa lÃ¡ Ã¡nÃt'Ã©? These are not really conversation starters but regarding the healthof person …spoken to and becuase you know they were sick. In somecases it might be a little rude abrupt or even seem like you arechecking if they are getting sick because you hope that. If you add AÌaÌ' at the begining it means "openup" or "tell me about it" and it is more polite. Here are some ways to start a conversation: AÌaÌ' ha'ÃÃ baa naninÃ¡?-- What are youdoing? AÌaÌ' ha'ÃÃ baa nÃdinÃdzÃ¡?-- What will you bedoing? AÌaÌ' ha'ÃÃ baa nisÃnÃyÃ¡?--- What were youdoing? AÌaÌ' hÃ¡Ã¡gÃ³Ã³ dÃnÃya?--- Where are you going? AÌaÌ' hÃ¡Ã¡gÃ³Ã³ nisÃnÃyÃ¡?--- -Where did you go? AÌaÌ' hÃ¡Ã¡dÃ©ÌÃ©Ì'?---- Where are you from? AÌaÌ' hÃ¡Ã¡dÃ©ÌÃ©Ì'Ãsh yÃnÃ¡Ã¡Å?--- Where you comingfrom? AÌaÌ' ha'ÃÃ baa dahane'?--- What's the news? AÌaÌ' ha'ÃÃ daha'nÃ?----- What's the gossip? AÌaÌ' ha'ÃÃ hodoo'niid?--- What was said? AÌaÌ' ha'ÃÃ?---- What's up? There are many ways to inquire "how are you?" Two more, expressionsnot as common in modern language are: . Haala 'ahoodzaa? -- An old expression usually between family orfriends who have not seen each other in quite some time and usedformally to update one another. An English equivalent may be anexpression among friends who say "What's been going on?" or "Howhave you been?" Both of which suggest some time to be spenttogether to update one another. .

KÇ«' The mark under the O makes it nasalized like in the French word"bon". The mark at the end is the Navajo consonant called a glottalstop. We have it in the middle of "uh'…oh".
Navajo has different words for different types of storm, as you would expect among people who traditionally spent much of their time outdoors in close contact with nature. …A thunderstorm is da'di'nÃigo nahaÅtin A sandstorm is Åeezh biÅ nÃyol A big hailstorm is nÃlÃ³tsoh A big snowstorm is yastsoh A tornado or hurricane is n Ãyoltsoh
Mostly Navajo does the word "you" differently than in English.Usually it conjugates into the verb so you know from the verb if Iam talking abut "me", "you", "you" (two), or "y…ou" (many). Often,you don't need or use the separate word "you". Navajo is a very"verb heavy" language. Different classes of Navajo conjugatedifferently. "You" separately is: ni , "you" two is: nihÃ , "you" three or more is: danihÃ . When this is attached to the beginning of a word it means "your" asin: nimÃ¡ "your mother". DÃÃ ÅÄ¯ÌÄ¯Ì' ni . -This horse is yours. Ni 'Ã©Ã nilÄ¯ÌÄ¯Ì' hÃ³lÇ«Ì --- You have a horse. NihÃ nihichidÃ 'Ã¡din. ---You (two) have no car. NihÃlaÃ¡Ã¡h nÃ¡Ã¡hkah. ShÃ t'Ã¡Ã¡ kÇ«ÌÇ« --- You (pl) goon ahead. I'll stay right here. The last part is literally: "Iright here it will be."
The Navajo word for no is dooda. nda = "no"; ndaga = "no"; doo < sentence> da = also used for negation
The correct Navajo name for themselves is DinÃ© , but they now also use the term NaabeehÃ³.
The Navajo word for stop is "assay". Kind of pronounced at-say Ibelieve. Well, Astee means "tail", and ÃtsÃ© means "first". I'm not sure what word thiswould be. Stop!(…enough) in Navajo is: k'adÃ! Stop! (don't do it) is: nÃwe! To stop as a verb is very, very hard in Navajo. There are lots ofdifferent words. For example "to stop in a wheeled vehicle", "tostop hurting" , "to stop flying", "to stop as in a watch stopping","to stop it's flow" and "to stop and take a rest" and about 30 moreare all different words.
The Navajo language does not include a native word for fighter plane. In the Navajo code used in World War 2, the word used was dahetihhi , which means "humming bird" - th…is ensured that even if the Japanese could somehow translate the word it would still not make any sense. The code worked in two stages: first, take a native word such as jaysho (buzzard) and then apply it to something military (a bomber plane). Nobody other than the code talkers themselves could make that connection.

Navajo verbs do not work this way for the most part. There is noword for "am" on it's own. shiÅ hÃ³zhÇ«Ì-- means "I am happy". The shiÅ means I am. biÅ -- woul…dmean he is, niÅ - you are. Ã¡nÃsht'Ã©-- "I am" in another context Often where we would use "am", in Navajo it conjugates into theverb as a part of it. For example, I am alive---naashÃ¡ ( literally, "I go around" or "amgoing around"). Compare the same verb in a different person: "My grand father is alive" (goes around)--Shicheii t'ah naaghÃ¡. The verb is the word at the end but now it has a "gh" not a "sh"
