Cultural Awareness Translation of ‘Let’s listen!’

 

Translation into Biigtigong’s dialect of Nishnaabemwin:

  • Bzindmodaa!

 

Bzindmodaa! ~ Let’s listen!

 

Morphemes (building blocks of each word):

  • bzind ~ “listen”
  • modaa ~ “Let’s…[no object]/it/them(inanimate)!”

 

A rough translation of the inner-meaning:

  • Let’s listen!, Let’s listen to it!, Let’s listen to them (inanimate)!

 

A plainer, more free-form, inner-meaning translation:

  • Let’s listen!, Let’s listen to it!, Let’s listen to them (inanimate)!
