Koasati Language Dictionary
The Koasati language is spoken by the Coushatta Tribe of Louisiana.
The dictionary listings are available in four options. Two pages are for searching using an English letter or word, either for words beginning with a letter or word, or for words containing an English word or phrase. These alphabetical pages are sorted by English word. The other two search features are available in the English to Koasati or Koasati to English type pages. These search pages provide more details about a word than is displayed in the alphabetical pages.
Both page types have the audio feature available. Please be patient when listening to the audio, as it takes a few moments to download each audio file. Click to hear.
When searching, enter the word or beginning few characters of a word. When the search word is found, if the Koasati word on the second line is displayed, then you can assume the audio for this word is available.
We must also suggest paying close attention to the nomenclature of the word. Often, words that are used as both a noun and a verb will have different spellings for each.
Since we can not safely display the fonts necessary for many of the American Indian alphabets, our American Indian words are displayed in an image file. The American Indian search word is spelled using normal English characters and is used when searching for the American Indian word.
Please be patient while an alphabetical listing page loads. The American Indian spellings are image files and this reduces the load time.
