Topic: Beginners Mando'a

I know there is a topic for speaking Mando'a allready. And I have the dictionary. But I am no good (meaning horrific) at languages. English has taken me many years to get good at. So I'm hoping that some of you that are way better at Mando'a (as shown in the other topic and in general around the site) might be kind enough to guide the rest in it. I'm not sure how or anything.. but it was an idea and I thought to put it out there.

Re: Beginners Mando'a

And a good idea, too.  I'm the same way; English is tough enough for me..............learning something new??  GAAAAAAAAA!!!  BRAIN HURTS!!!

I am interested in trying all things Mando, though, so if there's a 'easy' way, I'm up to try    smile

Re: Beginners Mando'a

The other thing I learned from True Colors- "Coppani geroy"  is basicly "Want to play?". That's as far as i've gotten besides the "cursing" which is safe to use around school children (something I am).

Re: Beginners Mando'a

It means to die.  Especially the Mando way, violently in battle.

Re: Beginners Mando'a

A really good one is at http://www.karentraviss.com/

I can't seem to get the exact link but you should see the Mythosaur skull and just follow the links.  The dictionary was last updated on October 07.  Next update is April 08.

I dont know ant mando 'a........ sad   sad

Re: Beginners Mando'a

Ah this is where we learn. I'd say the dictionary and grammar guide is a good place to start. What I know and learning is a lot from translation.  Speaking of which... how do you make a word in Mando'a possesive? I thought there was something on the grammar guide but now that I'm looking for it I can't find anything.

Re: Beginners Mando'a

Hey people, I posted same message in a topic just like this, but if you want to know a little basic mando'a there is an excellent place called iTunes.  You can go on and get the iTunes store and type in Aruetii ba'jurir dajun in the search box.  I know it's only one podcast, but it's free and it works good for explaining some basic phrases.  Hope this works for you guys  big_smile

Re: Beginners Mando'a

Don't think it is.  It's some guy, but he sounds really good.  Just a shame that there's only one episode.
