Hoo boy!

Gods help my sleep and my sanity, but I have discovered that DuoLingo does Navajo! It doesn't pronounce anything in Navajo, and I've had to figure the grammar out without any actual lessons, but by gods I've learned more in the last several hours than I did in the year prior to that.

Also, thank goodness it hasn't asked me to spell any of these words yet, not the least of which reasons is because half the accents on Navajo, I have no clue how to find on my tablet.

For anyone wondering why I'm bothering with Navajo: several characters in my Ravenstone story speak and/or understand Navajo. Because they're either Navajo in whole or in part, or because they're family to someone who is. (Dalia, for instance, is half Navajo and half Black.)
