Say it in Eyak!

February 6, 2014

You can surprise someone special this Valentine's Day by letting them know how you feel in Eyak. Among the new entries added this week is the phrase, ilah qe'xleh.  You've probably already figured out what that means.  Head to the dictionary and click on the L to look for LOVE in all the right places and hear how to say it. AwA'ahdah to Angela Reilly for her timely word request!

Speaking of the dictionary, some of the newest audio entries are from some of the newest speakers. To sample some of the great work by our first language modelers, check out Salmon (KING) to hear Dune Lankard, Sea Otter to hear Jenna May and Berry for Barbara Sappah. With a goal of adding 2400 entries in the next three years, there will be a lot of opportunities for Eyaks to add their voices to the dictionary.  Would you like to help? email eyakpeople@gmail.com to find out more about being a language model.
