Cherokee language study with emphasis on the Eastern dialect or the Giduwa dialect. Includes sound recordings.

In this lesson you will learn about the Cherokee words for “Stir It”and other related phrases.You will receive many lessons that will revolve around verbs that you can do with coffee. This does not mean that you can not exchange other words such as water or any other beverage.

Make you cards and when you get enough you can create your own lessons using the card and a cup of coffee.

The audio file contains the singular command from me to you and simple sentence, which is in the conversational Cherokee.

We will focus on this verb form because this is how you would talk when you are first learning to speak. As we get further into our lessons then we will incorporate other forms of the words.

Stir It (liquid)


You all and me stir it

You all stir it


You stir it


Let me stir it


You and I stir it

Do not pronounce the (e) it is silent but it is used so you will be able to write in syllabary.

Stir the coffee.
