Vocabulary in Native American Languages: Cherokee Words (Tsalagi)
We have included twenty basic words, enough to give you a feeling for each language. All the nouns are singular and all
the verbs are 3rd person singular ("he or she sings") because many Native American languages don't have a separate infinitive ("to sing")
the way English and French do.
You can find a broader selection of Cherokee words in our online picture glossaries.
If you would like to know a word that is not included in any of these wordlists, you can take part in our
Indian translations fundraiser, buy a Cherokee Indian
dictionary, or visit our main
Cherokee language site for more free resources.
Thanks for your interest in Native American languages!
