Chinook Jargon Phrasebook - English-Chinook Index

This is not, as far as I can tell, the same list as one in another edition of Kamloops Wawa, as there are some differences in spelling that I remember from the other version. This list is produced separately here from the rest of the Phrasebook because of the wide divergence in spelling and apparent pronunciation from the other versions of the lexicon, most of which were published in the United States. There are also some words included here which do not appear in the usual sources (Gibbs, Shaw, etc.).

De hecho, la antigua palabra 'jerga' sería equivalente a lo que nosotros denominamos 'pidgin'. La jerga chinook o cinúk wáwa a veces conocida como wáwa, fue la lengua de comercio en el Pacífico noroccidental y usada durante el siglo XIX y principios del XX. El origen es todavía incierto, pero lo que se sabe es que es un pidgin que incorpora palabras de nootka, francés, inglés y chehalis además de chinook, difundiéndose hacia el sur desde el río Lower Columbia antes de 1830 y hacia el norte antes de mediados del siglo XIX. Penetró a considerable distancia hacia el este pero se detuvo en las Montañas Rocosas y no pudo enraizar en las tierras del salishan interior de la Columbia Británica meridional y del este de Washington.

The First People of Clackamas County, Oregon. The First People of Clackamas County A Legend: Tallapus and the Hyas Tyee Tumwater (Willamette Falls) According to the Kalapuya Indians, long ago a hero named Tallapus (also called Coyote) came to the Willamette Valley from somewhere far over the Rocky Mountains.

At this time, gigantic skookums (ogres) terrified the people of the Valley. Worse still, the Kalapuyas (people of the Pudding River) had no place to catch the delicious salmon that teemed up the Willamette River every season.
