Welcome to our Choctaw vocabulary page! The Choctaw language belongs to the Muskogean family, related to other languages like Chickasaw and Creek. We have included twenty basic Choctaw 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.
