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.

Yuchi is a language isolate (a language that does not appear to be related to any other known language). Some linguists have suggested it may be
distantly related to the Siouan languages. You can have a look at some
Siouan Indian Words and judge for yourself.
