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.”)
