NOTE: You will often see two or three different pronunciations of the same word or phrase by different speakers (or even by the same speaker at different times). This is normal, and neither pronunciation is more "correct" than the other! We give both/all pronunciations to show the richness and variety of Soulatluk, and to honor all of the elder speakers who recorded the language.

* indicates a phrase that was reconstructed by language staff, based on similar phrases by elder speakers.
