Cultural Awareness Translation of ‘[You(plural)] listen!’

 

Translation into Biigtigong’s dialect of Nishnaabemwin:

  • Bzindmoyok!

 

Bzindmoyok! ~ [You(plural)] listen!

 

Morphemes (building blocks of each word):

  • bzind ~ “listen”
  • moyok ~ “You(plural)…[no object]/it/them(inanimate)!”

 

A rough translation of the inner-meaning:

  • [You(plural )] listen!, [You(plural )] listen to it!, [You(plural )] listen to them (inanimate)!

 

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

  • [You(plural )] listen!, [You(plural )] listen to it!, [You(plural )] listen to them (inanimate)!
