This text file accompanies the CD "Learn Michif" . Michif, like any living language, is firstandforemost an oral language. The sounds, words and sentences on the CD are the importantitems.These texts are made available just to support the oral texts on the CD. It is much moreimportantto learn to understand - and speak - the language than to learn to write it.If you want the CD, write to: firstname.lastname@example.org Please note: two distinct spelling systems are used for Michif here.One system was devised in the 1970s by the Turtle Mountain Métis, which is based onEnglish spelling.The other is based on a more phonetic system, where double vowels are used for longvowels, and each letter or letter combination always represents the same sound. This spellingwasdevised by Rita Flamand, with some modifications by the linguist Robert Papen of Montreal.Both have been in use for a number of years. It is up to the users to adopt the system theylike most.
