Appendix:Swadesh lists for Algonquian languages

Definition from Wiktionary, the free dictionary
Jump to: navigation, search

This is a table of Swadesh lists for Algonquian languages. Some Iroquoian languages are also given for comparative purposes.

  • Ojibwe (Chippewa, Anishinaabemowin) — northern United States and eastern Canada
  • Blackfoot — Montana, United States
  • Mi'kmaq (Micmac) — Nova Scotia, Canada
  • Lenape (Unami, Delaware) — Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, United States
  • Mohawk — New York, United States; Ontario and Québec, Canada; Iroquoian language
  • Cherokee (Tsalagi) — North Carolina and Oklahoma, United States; Iroquoian language
  • Nottoway (Cherunhakah) — Eastern Virginia; Iroquoian language

Note: Additional vocabulary words have been added after word No. 207 ("name"), since the original lengths of Swadesh lists are either 100 or 207 words.
