Algonkian-Mosan (Algonkian-Mosans)

"Algonkian-Mosan" is a linguistics term used to refer to a suggested relationship between the Algonquian languages (such as Ojibway, Lenape, Blackfoot, and Cree), the Wakashan languages (such as Kwakiutl and Makah), and the Salishan languages (such as Lushootseed, Straits Salish, and Coeur d'Alene.) This relationship is hypothetical and is not agreed upon by most linguists.
