Vocabulary in Native American Languages: Timucua Words

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.

You can find a broader selection of Timucua Indian 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, buy a Timucua dictionary, or visit our main Timucua language site for more free resources.

Thanks for your interest in Native American languages!
