T’óó ahayóí

t ohh ah ha yew we

Today’s phrase is Navajo for “many” or “much” or “a lot.”

It’s used in reference to the quantity of something.

Take the following picture as an example:

Notice all the Navajo words in this picture! You can see the big truck (chidí tsoh) and it’s carrying a lot of hay (tł’oh), which happens to be alfalfa (tł’oh waa’í) and it’s early in the morning (abiní).

So here’s a sentence that demonstrates a simple usage:

Tł’oh waa’í t’óó ahayóí!

See! You’re learning Navajo!
