vishil kopa klismas

Thanks to Stubs we have a new Chinook poem: klismas vishil! This post uses David Corbett’s new Chinuk Pipa font (though you can see the transcription below). If you haven’t downloaded the font yet, check it out here. Merry Christmas everyone and thanks again Stubs!

klismas vishil

kopa klismas vishil, kopa kanawi kah
klaksta tiki slip. Wik kata.

iaka chako kopa hloima mawich tsiktsik

mitlait iaka mawich sahali kopa haws
iaka makmak maika milk, mamuk hom maika shit haws

iaka klai “HO HO HO”, drit iaka patllom
drit kaltash kopa iaka pus maika musum

iaka shus patl ilihi, mamuk tlimin maika tliskwis
iaka kapshwala libiskwi, kakwa tanas kwiskwis

pus wik mayka gitop, iaka makmak maika wiski
pi iaka klai kopa kanawi, “tlus klismas! tlus pulakli!”

    1. What is the problem you’re having? It should work fine in Firefox and (with some tweaking of browser settings) in Chrome. Various other apps work to varying degrees. If you’re using a mobile OS you might be out of luck; I don’t remember if anyone’s gotten it working there.

      To preview specific sentences, e.g. from this poem, you can always copy and paste them into the test keyboard. That should work on any device without needing to install the font.

      1. I haven’t managed to install the font in my Windows 10 laptop / Chrome. I was following step-by-step instructions, but as I recall I couldn’t figure out the last step. Will retry.
