The Cree  Language

Description

The Cree language is a part of the Algonquin language family. Cree is a polysynthetic language; meaning a single word can function as a whole sentence and that single word or expression can be change by multiple affixes. Cree is native to North America.


Formerly, the Cree language was only a spoken language. However, today it can be written in two major scripts known as Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics (CAS) and the Latin Script (LS). The Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics or CAS is an Abugida; meaning it is a system based on consonant-vowel pairs created by James Evans. It can be written by most Canadian Aboriginal languages. The Latin Script or LS is a script used by many languages around the world, such as; English, French, German, Cree, and much more. The LS was originally used by ancient Romans which has evolved and is now used by many languages of the world. Under LS, Cree uses a writing system called Standard Roman Orthography or SRO.
