Ratings and Reviews
There are many pronunciations on this app that sound nothing like the actual spelling. I've been around Lakota speakers my whole life so it's not that I don't understand the alphabet and its sounds, it more like some words have and extra "ni" or "yapi" in them here and there. And some words seem to be spelled incorrectly according to how they are said. Can you please go back and make sure you have all of these spellings and pronunciations correct? For a beginning learner, these can be embarassing mistakes
This is a very good app overall. I've been speaking Lakota since 1994 and have an extensive library of books (eg Beuchel) and grammars and have been around many native speakers. There are some extra sounds inserted not shown on written part and 'hwo' (question) is mixed up with 'yo/ye' (command). In addition Lakota and Nakota and some Dakota are mixed together in some phrases. But overall an excellent app.
This app seems to be very well thought out, easy to use, and effective. One of the few language learning apps I’ll actually use.
