Puxára Ihrûuvtihap—They Don’t Use It For Long

LEVEL: Intermediate to Advanced

This assignment is based on a lengthier text than that included in Áraar Úpeenti previously. The subject is the Indian pipe. In the first section the speaker is describing the general usage of the hand made Indian pipe, pa’úhraam. Other sections will be posted later.

ASSIGNMENT: Listen to the audio recordings of the selected text. It is presented sentence by sentence and is in two parts. After listening and repeating the spoken text refer to the typewritten text. Rehear the recording and read along with the underlined text which should correspond to the recordings. (You will find a pdf download option of the text at end of the post.)

As in previous assignment you must indicate all of the accent marks on the written text. Take a picture of your notated text and send it to me. I will go over your “answers” and let you know how you did! Yay! No grade or anything–this is a way to practice hearing the language, noticing what and where the syllables of words are stressed or have a rising-falling tone to them. You must also indicate when a vowel is long.
