Vocabulary Words in Native American Languages: Wintu
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.
If you need to know a Wintu word that is not currently on our page, you can take part in our
translation of Native American languages fundraiser, buy a
Wintu dictionary, or visit our main
Wintu language site for more free resources.
Thanks for your interest in Native American languages!
