Vocabulary Words in the Witotoan Language Family

These Witotoan 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 Witotoan 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 Witotoan word that is not currently on our page, you can take part in our American Indian translation fundraiser or visit our main Witotoan languages site for more free resources.

Thanks for your interest in American Indian languages!
