    Ok, we have this sheet music for our 10th grade student. He only needs the lyrics. How would we transcribe this dialect?
    Thank you for all your help.

    Sorry forgot to attach.

    Since this is a rather difficult language to learn and pronounce correctly, I would advise that you use a running parallel of two lines for the uncontracted lyrics. The top line would be the original Cherokee language, uncontracted and directly beneath it on the second line, the uncontracted words showing the correct pronunciation of the Cherokee dialect. The corresponding music would then be indented to cell 3 directly below the lyrics. Page 181 of the Music Braille Code, Example 22.17-1 shows an example of french lyrics done in a similar manner. Great question!
