Hi, how are you? I am sorry to bother you with this but could you please translate this to Chinook Jargon?

  • Glosa is an artificial auxiliary language designed for international communication.

Thanks for your help. Jon Gua (talk) 05:31, 8 January 2024 (UTC)Reply

  • Glosa ix̣t ləlang, pi Ron Clark pi Wendy Ashby mamuk ukuk lalang pus wix̣t łush tilixam łaska mamuk wawa kənaməkwst tilix̣am kopa x̣luima iliʔi.

(Glosa is a language, and Ron Clark pi Wendy Ashby created this language for people to communicate more easily with people from other nations.)
(Yeah, some things are pretty hard to express in Chinook Jargon, and it doesn't help that my knowledge of it is meager. I'm happy to help though. Since "mamuk" or "mamook" means "make","do" AND "use", I had to include mentions of Ron Clark and Wendy Ashby to specify that they invented/use the language, because If I just said "tilixam" (people), it would be hard to show that Glosa is an artificial language.)
I had not heard of Glosa before this moment, it was nice reading a thing or two from the English wikipedia page about it. Feel free to get me to translate more, I don't want to be the only contributor. POSSUM chowg (talk) 06:04, 8 January 2024 (UTC)Reply

If you could please translate the rest of the article, ad then I will give you other articles to translate for the Chinook Jargon Wikipedia.
It has several characteristics:
  • Its pronunciation is regular, and its spelling is phonetic.
  • Its structure is very simple and based on meaning.
  • It is an analytical language with no inflections or genders. A small number of words handle grammatical relations.
  • Above all, Glosa is neutral and truly international due to the use of Latin and Greek roots, which are used in the international scientific vocabulary.
  • List of articles all languages should have

Well, there's a pretty crude transliteration of that bit. Also, there's one thing I forgot to mention about Chinook Jargon: the spelling is completely unstandardized, so words are written in several different ways, even on the same page. This is kinda part of the charm.
As of now, no articles based on the main Dewey Decimal System categories exist on Chinook Jargon Wikipedia, but the category "Lvlang pi wawa" (languages and speech) somewhat corresponds to language and literature.POSSUM chowg (talk) 08:04, 8 January 2024 (UTC)Reply

I just give you the article on the Simple English Wikipedia because I think it is easier to translate but whichever you decide to traslate it better. Maybe you could create an article about honey or fruit? Also how do you say "List of article all languages should have" or "List of important articles"? Jon Gua (talk) 17:40, 9 January 2024 (UTC)Reply
"List of articles all languages should have": Łush pus kanawi ləlang t̓u'an kanawi ukuk pipa (All languages should have all of these pages)
"List of important articles" could be translated as kanawi tayi pipa, (all important articles), but the main page of the site already uses the title "Tayi-pipa", so that could easily be interpreted as meaning "all main pages".
I like to retain the titles of pages, because I know that I do not know Chinook Jargon as well as a lot of other people who edited CJ Wikipedia long before I showed up. For example, I'm still afraid to make a new page about pish (fish), which used to be the same page as samvn (meaning and pronounced as salmon) before my edits. For all I know, despite there being a general word for fish in Chinook Jargon, the word "salmon" could also mean fish in general, although the only record I could find of this are edits by Nvolut, the guy who originally created the Samvnn page. So now we're stuck without a page about fish in general.
I know that it would be easier to translate the simple english wikipedia pages, but here we tend to write our own articles on a subject (so most pages are only about a line or two long. However, the page Ulx̣ayu (seals) contains a large amount of crudely translated text from a 2003 version of the corresponding English page. POSSUM chowg (talk) 18:05, 9 January 2024 (UTC)Reply
I suggest creating a page, for instance "pish" and then include the translation in English:
pish (basan-wawa: fish) the rest of the article
and also creating a redirection from the article Fish (with the English title) to the article in Chinook Jargon.
I have created the list. Would you be able to translate anything from that list to Chinook Jargon so that we have as much information as possible on that page in CJ? If you are sure there are words that don't exist (e.g. metaphysics) just delete that row. Jon Gua (talk) 19:49, 9 January 2024 (UTC)Reply
Well, I made a page, albeit a short one, about fish, with a note at the top saying that perhaps this page should be put back in "samvn" like it used to be. POSSUM chowg (talk) 21:32, 9 January 2024 (UTC)Reply

Learning the language edit

Hi, how are you? I've just read the new paragraph you added to your user page and I wanted to ask you how did you learn Chinook Jargon? Which materials did you use? Is it easy to learn? --Jon Gua (talk) 16:13, 14 January 2024 (UTC)Reply

Chinook Jargon is very easy to learn: I actually made my first edit to CJ Wikipedia only a few days after I started learning Chinook Jargon (with the creation of the page "Lima" (hand).). All you need is a few online dictionaries...
This one from 1863 that you can find on the University of Washington's website
Kaltash Wawa has many good resources on the Chinook Jargon, including this dictionary and this massive wordlist.
Most of what I know about Chinook Jargon grammar, however, I learned from reading the pages on this wiki.
Reading Kamloops Wawa and other Chinook Jargon relics from the olden days has helped a lot as well.
Like I said, the Chinook jargon is written in a multitude of different ways. I tried to adopt the precedents of previous editors (mostly,) and that involved spelling words similar to how they do: I began to write page titles with Nvolut's typable orthography, and wrote the pages themselves using a mishmash of various Chinook Jargon spellings, incorporating letters like q, x̣, ə, ʔ and ł.

Hi, could you please translate this? I checked that there was a word in Chinuk Wawa for these terms here.

  • Candle (la shan-del’): A candle is a stick made of wax with a string (a thin piece of rope) straight in the middle.
  • Milk (to-toosh') is a white liquid made by mammals, like cows, dogs, and humans.
  • Rabbit (kwit’-shad-ie) are mammals of the family Leporidae, with long ears, long hind legs and a short, fluffy tail.

If there is no word for "mammal", maybe you could use "animal" instead.

Yeah, if we could get another guy or two editing pages on Chinook Jargon Wikipedia, we'd hit 200 pages in no time. If you look at the toolforge statistics, you'll see that last month had by far the most activity of any month ever, and the file size of Chinook Jargon Wikipedia QUADRUPLED over this time. I still hope that someone will join the wiki after seeing our Facebook posts, if we wait long enough.
It could be possible, but it's still fairly unlikely, that we could get some high-ranking guy in the web's Chinook Jargon communities, like David Robertson, to mention the wiki; that would almost certainly bring in new members. Obviously I will NOT attempt to pester old Robertson to get recognition, for the sheer sake of respect.
Or, we could keep advertising the wiki with Facebook posts. Your advertising post got a lot of attention (17 comments or so), and all mine got was a few likes. Still, I'm also a little worried to get repetitive about our adverts, since these would get annoying quickly.

I don't speak Choctaw. I have a decent knowledge of the Chinook Jargon (or "Chinuk Wawa"), and the Chinook Jargon Wikipedia is my main project. The current slogan of CJ Wikipedia is "WIKIPIDIA, buk pus kanawi nsayka kəmtəks" written in the Duployan shorthand. That could be interpreted as "Wikipedia, the book for all our knowledge" or "Wikipedia, the book for all of us to know", both fitting slogans in my opinion. It's nice to see another test wiki for a North American language get recognition. Anyway, the Chinook Jargon is a pidgin language so it's pretty easy to learn. I wouldn't be opposed to helping out on Choctaw Wikipedia, after all, Jon Gua is a big help to us on the Chinook Jargon Wikipedia despite his inability to speak Chinook...
