come in

whosh deh

The Navajo word wóshdę́ę́’ is somewhat common in usage and roughy means “come in” in English.

You might say this when someone is visiting, or arriving, at a place wherein you are already inside the building or room. It’s an invitation, of sorts.

Occasionally, you may hear dóóshdę́ę́’ (dóó wóshdę́ę́’) and that is used to express a condition from one point in time, or space, to the present. (i.e. “I have been wearing braces since the fourth grade (until now).” / “From the pond to here, my mother has been singing.”)
