Welcome to our Mam vocabulary page! Mam is a Mayan language, related to other languages like Quiche and Yucatec Maya. We have included twenty basic Mam words here, enough to provide a basic comparison with related 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.
