Yep! "hk" almost always starts the word it's used in. A few examples: (Am I using [aU] right? It should sound like "o" in "go" or "own" or "toe") hkchui [hxkTswi] "fun" hkoth [hxkaT] "man" hkmotch [hxkmatTs] "itch" hkojul [hxkaUdZVl] "dead" hkchuighya [hxkTswighj] "pleasant experience" hkutwe [hxkVtwe] "among" hknonnyol [hxknaUnjaUl], refers to a type of psychosocial state, no convenient translation hkothkau [hxkaTkO] "father" hkchkrane [hxkTskrane] "ancestors" hkdmfah [hxkdmfah] "to blind, to prevent from seeing" hkqih [hxkqih] "to glitter" hko [hxkkaU] "to die" hkoqa [hxkaUqa] "to kill" hkhyra [hxkhaIra] "flat cleared hill" hkukchyuwa [hxkVkTsjuwa] "hilly tundra"
