Hitchiti Indian Language

Hitchiti was a Muskogean language of the American Southeast, which today is no longer spoken. It was very closely related to the still-living Miccosukee language, and some linguists consider the two to be dialects of a single Hitchiti-Mikasuki language. Like other Muskogean languages, Hitchiti was a language with morphologically complex verbs and SOV word order.
