Woshch’ishjí

Following up with the Navajo word nówehjí (further away; move!), is its opposing direction woshch’ishjí (or woshch’ishí).

It means ‘this way’ or ‘closer’.

A common way to use this word is woshch’ishígíí, which means ‘that which is closer by’. It’s a general term and can be clarified by preceding it with an object (noun). For example, “chidí woshch’ishígíí” takes on the meaning “the vehicle that is closer (or closest).”
