Welcome to our Bidai vocabulary page! Bidai is an ancient language of Texas. Few records remain of the language, though some people believe it may have been related to Gulf languages like Atakapa. We have included twenty basic Bidai words here, enough to provide a simple 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.
