Welcome to our Miami-Illinois vocabulary page! Miami-Illinois is an Algonquian language, related to other languages like Ojibwe and Blackfoot. We have included twenty basic Miami-Illinois 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.
