CL 102 Communicative Lakota for Beginners – II

  • Course description

    This course will build on CL 101 and will focus on language used for expressing the time of events in Lakota, such as specific events in the past, non-specific events in the past, recurrent or habitual events, future or potential events, asking “when”. Other topics include the concept of “can,” “want” and “need” in Lakota. The course will introduce more kinship terms and ways of talking about possession (including possessive and dative verbs). Students will learn how to describe stative verbs and with relative clauses to describe people, animals and objects. The course will introduce many other frequent and common aspects of Lakota vocabulary, structure, and usage.
