Vocabulary Words in Native American Languages: Etchemin
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.
If you would like to know a Etchemin word that is not currently on our page, you can take part in our
Native American words fundraiser, buy an
Etchemin dictionary, or visit our main
Etchemin site for more free resources.

The Etchemin language has long been extinct, so these vocabulary words come from 17th-century sources and may well have some
errors in them ; sadly, there are no native speakers left to verify them.
