Learn Salish

Welcome to our Salish language page. The Salishan (or Salish) languages are a group of languages of the Pacific Northwest, and are all considered endangered languages. Salishan languages are agglutinative in structure, and form words by repeatedly affixing stems to roots, and have some of the largest consonant clusters found in languages. The Salishan family includes 23 languages. They were the source of much of the vocabulary of the trading language, Chinook Jargon.
