Muskogean Languages

Postby ennime » 2008-11-14, 10:31

Hi!

I was wondering if there are any Mvskoge speakers communities, fora etc. on the internet? I do know that there are quite some language resources for a language as this, but resources alone don't teach a language...

Creek, not Cree... they are very different languages...

You're absolutely right. My dad spoke Seminole, which is a Creek variant. He lived and died on the Seminole reservation.

Thread for languages like Creek, Chockaw, Chicktaw, ect. These languages are Native American languages, traditionally spoken in the Southeastern U.S.

My Dad, even though he was Cherokee, lived on the Seminole Reservation in Hialeah, FL the years before he died. He didn't speak Cherokee that well, but he was fluent in Seminole (Creek).
I never liked the sound of the Muskogean languages (too many plosives), but I have enough stuff to learn Creek , etc to choke a mule.

That's one way to put it! 8-)
I haven't really gotten into them much myself. Though I'll probably learn one or two Muskogean languages, just for kicks.

Glad to see a Muskogean thread is here. I've got a few links here to add. The purlgurl link someone else posted didn't work for me, but my link does (it has intro.html instead of index.html).

CHOCTAW
http://www.purlgurl.net/~choctaw/intro.html
http://www.nativenashville.com/language/tutor_chata.htm
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Choctaw_language
(this wikipedia article is pretty good, check the Creek one too)

CREEK
http://lingspace.wm.edu/lingspace/creek/

Alabama (Koasati)

Also, I own Choctaw Language and Culture by Haag and Willis that I would recommend as a resource. You can get it on Amazon, but there seems to be a second volume that uses the first volume's picture on Amazon. So it's a little confusing. I don't know what that second vol. actually contains.

Thanks for the links. And sorry about the one link not working for you.

I also have Choctaw Language and Culture Vol. 1. I would concur was well, it is a good introduction to the language. The only let down is that it doesn't have audio, at least not that I'm aware of.

There is also Beginning Creek, also available on Amazon. It does have audio, and is in a similar format to Choctaw Language and Culture. They also came out with Intermediate Creek too. Haven't gotten that, but I'd assume it's as good as the first volume.

I've found this YouTube channel with some Chocktaw lessons :)
