Cherokee Syllabary
           Learning the Cherokee Language



















    The Cherokee alphabet is a Syllabary of 85 
    characters in which each letter in a word stands 
    for a whole syllable. There are six vowels, an "s"         sound and the remaining seventy eight symbols           represent a combination of consonant and vowel.         The English sounds for: BFJPRVXTh are non-             existent. The Cherokee language includes  a
    non vowel which does not exist in English. The 
    vowel is decidedly tonal and is pronounced like the       "U" in nut, nasalized. 
    The Tuolumne Band of Cherokee Indians are 
    involved in preserving their aboriginal languages.         Our dedicated   members are working diligently to         ensure the Cherokee language survives. 
    Cherokee Language Classes will be starting up             again in the near future.
