Welcome to our Timucua vocabulary page! Timucua is an extinct language of Florida. It is not known to be related to any other language, but some linguists believe it may be a distant relative of the Arawak languages. We have included twenty basic Timucua 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.
