Apalachee Indian Language (Appalachee, Appalachi)

Apalachee was a Muskogean language of the American Southeast. Very little is known of it today. Apalachee ceased to be spoken by the community in the early 18th century, although a few words survived among their descendants. Early Spanish transcripts of the language suggest that it was most closely related to Hitchiti and Alabama. Like other Muskogean languages, Apalachee was a language with morphologically complex verbs and SOV word order.
