Welcome to our Arawak vocabulary page! Arawak, also known as Lokono, is an Arawakan language, related to other languages like Guajiro and Piapoco. We have included twenty basic Arawak words here, enough to provide a basic comparison with related American Indian languages. All the nouns are singular and all the verbs are 3rd person singular ("he or she sings") because many indigenous languages don't have a separate infinitive ("to sing") the way English and French do.
