Vocabulary Words in Native American Languages: Nez Perce
We have included ten basic 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.
You can find a broader selection of Nez Perce words in our online picture glossaries.
If you would like to know a word that is not included in any of these wordlists, you can take part in our
translation of Native American languages fundraiser or visit our main
Nez Perce language site for more free resources.
Thanks for your interest in Native American languages!
