Woordenboek Lenape - Engels
Waupatukway sprak een oostelijke Algonkin taal. Helaas kenden de indianen in die tijd geen schrift. De taal werd dus niet opgeschreven
We weten ook niet hoe de woorden werden uitgesproken; we kunnen er alleen naar raden.
Eeuwen later hebben onderzoekers alsnog geprobeerd woordenboeken te maken. Maar veel Algonkin-woorden kennen we nog steeds niet, zoals hun woord voor melk.
Bij het schrijven van Manhatan heeft Rob Ruggenberg gebruik gemaakt van een woordenlijst die is opgenomen in het boek 'The Indians of New Jersey', van M.R. Harrington (uit 1938).
Die lijst is toegespitst op de Lenape-taal. Dat is een van die Algonkin-talen.
Een ander, uitgebreider Lenape woordenboek — met helaas een andere schrijfwijze van de woorden — vind je hieronder.
Het woordenboek vertaalt naar het Engels. Jammergenoeg bestaat er geen Nederlandse versie.
