|'ula'ulh||There is no one on the car.||s'a'kw'us*||Hanging fish.|
|si'q||The hat is underneath the chair.||stutes||I live near Chemainus.|
|sts'uts'e'||There is no food on the table.||sun'iw'||What is in the box?|
Note: You are "on board" a vehicle, 'ula'ulh, not "in" it in Hul'q'umi'num'. In standard Canadian English, you are in a car and in a canoe, but on a ship. Most First Nations speakers of English in this region use on in all three cases. We use on in the English translation of 'ula'ulh throughout these Lessons as a reminder not to use sun'iw' when vehicles are involved.
*Note: The Cowichan Tribes write s-a'kw'us. However, we will spell this word s'a'kw'us throughout these lessons.
