AUTHOR: Bo Tayolor

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 stop what you’re doing and come here, and other related phrases.Because of my busy schedule I am going to be giving you guys one sentence per day. It will be easier for me to get lessons out to you and hopefully you will be getting lessons on a regular basis.

In each sentence I will try to give you a phrase or something that you can use every day. Also, you will be able to see how sentence structure works.

Once you get a good base to your vocabulary then you can add your own words to create your own sentences.

Sgi,

Bo
