Vocabulary Words in Native American Languages: Salinan (Cmique)
We have included twenty 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.
If you need to know a Salinan word that is not currently on our page, you can take part in our
Indian translations fundraiser, buy a Salinan
linguistics book, or visit our main
Salinan language site for more free resources.
Thanks for your interest in Native American languages!
