Welcome to our Karankawa vocabulary page! Karankawa is an extinct language of Texas, not known to be related to any other living language. We have included twenty basic Karankawa words here, enough to provide a basic comparison with other American Indian languages. All the nouns are singular and all the verbs are 3rd person singular ("he or she sings") because many indigenous languages don't have a separate infinitive ("to sing") the way English and French do.
|English (Français)||Karankawa words|

|Moon (Lune)||Tayk or Auil|
|Water (Eau)||Clé or Komkom|
