I've gotten some good views on my inquiry about my wanting to teach a little Amazoni so that people can better understand when my Amazoni speak and I'll do my best with phonetic spelling by how I 'hear' Amazoni. I'll keep adding more until the slide bar appears and reaches it's end and if there's any language left, continue. I can always invent more whether in the stories or not. It'll be interesting to see the views. I'm having fun already.

I=HoashkÓ(the "Ó" is explosive and cuts off abruptly. Hoash-KAH)
You(singular)-Yahtoo
You(a.k.a. y'all)-Yahtoos

Hello/goodbye=dah˛(the "o" is abrupt and cut off abruptly.dah-HO)

Stars indicate words used in stories.

*am=may
*here=hesh
*good=betoga(bet-doh-gah)
*tell=doenah
