Phrase Pages: Everyday Sayings from Cecil Twance

This week, Cecil Twance (Biigtigong elder) and John Paul Montano (Language Project Core Team Member) teamed up by phone to audio record some everyday sayings and common words, all in Biigtigong’s dialect.

In addition to hearing their recorded audio, you can also read the English translations of everything that these two men recorded over the last few days.

We call these types of recordings ‘phrase pages.’ And, we hope to be seeing lots more Biigtigong community members producing phrase pages over the coming months!

We invite you to check out these latest audio recordings and translations by going to Cecil Twance’s Phrase Pages page.

Enjoy!
