ew léts’es o… means ‘just one…’‘.
Audio: Elizabeth Herrling
Structure and Vocabulary
This phrase has the following structure:
- ew…o – just – Both words can be used by themselves as ways of marking emphasis, but together they mean just, only
- léts’es – one – This is based on léts’e, but Elizabeth adds the -s ending, which in this case may mark round things (létse’s can be used for counting dollars, Indian blankets, or round things)
