Welcome to our Osage vocabulary page! Osage is a Siouan language, related to other languages like Crow and Lakota Sioux. We have included twenty basic Osage words here, enough to provide a simple 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.
|The characters in RED are written in the new Osage font, which you must download here to view correctly. The letters in black are our romanization. Click here for a full pronunciation guide.|
