g, ǧ

The Lakota g sounds like the g in got.
The Lakota ǧ sounds like the northern French r in Paris. There is no English equivalent.

In Lakota g occurs only before consonants (gl, gm, gn, gw, gy) and ǧ occurs only before vowels (ǧa, ǧe, ǧi, ǧo, ǧu, ǧaŋ, ǧiŋ, ǧuŋ).

Based on the above rule you can easily fill the missing letters in the exercise below. But you can also listen to the pronunciation to get some practice:





1: _našká



2:



3: wa_lékšuŋ



4: a_úyapi



5: núŋ_e



6: uŋzó_e



7: šuŋ_íla



8: wa_míza



9: tȟašíya_nuŋpa



10: ho_áŋ



11: wá_ačhaŋ



12: i_mú



13: čhuwí_naka
