Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Chiwere is a Siouan language originally spoken by the Missouria, Otoe, and Iowa peoples, who originated in the Great Lakes region but later moved throughout the midwest and plains. The language is closely related to Ho-Chunk, also known as Winnebago. The Iowa tribe refers to their language as B xoje ich' or Bah Kho Je. The Otoe-Missouria dialect is called J were ich' . The spelling Chiwere, used mostly by linguists, derives from the fact that the language has an aspiration distinction rather than a voice distinction, so that the unaspirated stops /b d d / are variably voiced or unvoiced. Although is a valid pronunciation of the first sound of Jiwere Chiwere, it may mislead English speakers into pronouncing it.show more
