Vocabulary Words in Native American Languages: Yupik (Sugpiaq, Aluutiq)
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 languages don't have a separate infinitive ("to sing")
the way English and French do.
If you need to know a Yupik word that is not currently on our page, you can take part in our
American Indian translation fundraiser, buy a Yupik
dictionary, or visit our main
Yupik language site for more free resources.
Thanks for your interest in Native American languages!
