Weird Wednesday Pt.1- Narragansett

Sooo this is basically just going to be a bunch of weird languages in general. The only real criteria is that is has to be from a random place and has to have less than 50 entries in the dictionary. Sometimes, the language might have a bit more words but, anyways, I’m rambling a bit.

Narraganset

There’s literally only 5 entries and 1 of them is the name of the language itself, so I guess it should technically be 4. Narragansett is a member of the Algonquian family branch and is spoken, quite obviously, by the Narragansett people.

Words

coween- basically a duck “quack quack”

seapoose- shallow inlet/tidal stream

squash- the FRUIT, though it’s used as a vegetable in cooking

squaw- figure target representing kneeling
