Vocabulary Words in the Misumalpan Language Family

These Misumalpan words are not spelled phonetically--each word is spelled according to the orthography of its own language, so if you're not familiar with these languages you will need to follow the links to see how to pronounce them. We are working on a second chart transcribed into IPA symbols. We have included twenty basic Misumalpan Indian 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 Misumalpan word that is not currently on our page, you can take part in our American Indian translation fundraiser or visit our main Misumalpan languages site for more free resources.

Thanks for your interest in American Indian languages!
