I was hoping to get this video uploaded by the 1st to coincide with the release of the i-Pad. It didn't happen. Again, I was curious to see what it would be like to describe my i-POD in Navajo. I guess you could consider it a brief lesson in descriptive Navajo. Sorry, no subtitles under the annotations yet. I'll be adding it over time. FYI, newer technology is harder to describe in Navajo. In this vid, I basically described the shape, color, weight, etc., of my i-POD (described the physical characteristics). I went into a little detail about how it works & last of all, briefly touched on concepts, such as downloading & recharging. In regards to concepts of "downloading," there are no offical ways to describe these things in Navajo. People in different areas use different words. What I present here are suggestions. Enjoy & Happy YouTubing! Hope you find my attempts to describe this interesting.
