Notes
Have we talked about the /iː/? The word it follows is the object of the verb. Sometimes it is left out when talking about something in general, but it is especially used when referring to a specific object. We see this in /bi ən xɔbʧə̌s iː ɑbjɑː/. I’ll get this article of clothing.

Notes:
gəʤ bæːnɑː can also be pronounced gəʤinɑː
As I understand it, gəʤ bæːn expresses the speakers intent to do something, whereas bɔdə̌ʤ bæːn is more thinking about or wanting to do something. gəʤ itself is some sort of connecting word.

      Working on developing Mongol apps has kept me busy recently. Although I am continuing my own personal study of Mongolian, I have neglected working on getting more lessons online. Sorry about that. If anyone one else is interested in contributing to this website let me know.
