Nha marni -Hi Everyone!
We have introduced greetings in Narungga at Central Yorke School and have been encouraging our staff and students to use it everyday in their classes as it’s an easy way of connecting to language and beginning the day. Why don’t you try a few of these?
Guranna banyiwarda – Good morning
Nhinni marni – Hello, how are you? (When speaking to one person)
Marniayi – I’m good (response to hello, how are you?)
Nha marni – Hello, how are you? (When speaking to a group)
Ngayi yunggu – Thank you!
