The following charts present a survey of Taino language and various Arawakan conjugations of the word “Give”. If you find a mistake, please make a comment below. Please note, however, that I have adapted the Wayyu orthography to English, so that “J” becomes “H”. The sound “ü” is also written as “(u)” in other posts, and is pronounced similar to the English short vowel of “U” (Uh, Sir, Fir, etc.).
Notice the similarities between the languages, Wayyu being the only language that does not use a cognate of “Asika” for “Give”. Also, due to its unique conjugations, I decided to conjugate the verb form for “Give It” rather than “Give” for Wayyu. As a note, certain verbs in Karifuna/Garifuna do conjugate in a similar manner.
I intend to continue adding other charts and making corrections to current charts, but I want to focus on the simple tenses. So keeping checking back!
