Also lasso?[edit]

Can this also mean "lasso"? 00:58, 21 April 2011 (UTC)

A lariat and a lasso are the same thing. —Stephen (Talk) 01:53, 21 April 2011 (UTC)


What connection is there between this and atłʼóóh? -- Eiríkr ÚtlendiTala við mig 17:11, 8 March 2012 (UTC)

I think they’re different aspects of the same stem. The stems for weave are:
ITERATIVE: -tłʼóóh
FUTURE: -tłʼóół
OPTATIVE: -tłʼóóh —Stephen (Talk) 20:41, 8 March 2012 (UTC)
Thank you, Stephen. Looks like it could be a noun use of the future aspect -- "that which will be woven", sort of.
Incidentally, what references would you suggest for looking up full verb paradigms? -- Cheers, Eiríkr ÚtlendiTala við mig 00:59, 9 March 2012 (UTC)
There is the Navajo/English Dictionary of Verbs by Alyse Neundorf. —Stephen (Talk) 00:35, 10 March 2012 (UTC)
Yes, though unfortunately she only gives incomplete paradigms with the imperfective, perfective, and future -- no usitative nor optative stem forms given. Plus she doesn't give anything about related momentaneous / continuous forms, nor any index, and the organization of the dictionary makes it only useful for EN -> NV lookups. Reading the foreword by Young, it sounds a bit like the dictionary was compiled posthumously from her notes, which would seem to agree with the somewhat raw and unfinished feel of the book... Thank you though, and I'm all ears if you have other recommendations.  :) -- Cheers, Eiríkr ÚtlendiTala við mig 06:51, 12 March 2012 (UTC)
There is another one called "Colloquial Navaho: A Dictionary", by Young and Morgan. It has a lot of good information in it, but some find it difficult to use. —Stephen (Talk) 17:10, 12 March 2012 (UTC)
