The first column is the English word, with the second column being the Tsalagi (Cherokee) word. I cannot guarantee accuracy here, only that I have done the very best that I could. Of course it is inevitable that the Eastern as well as the Western dialects are intermingled. Any additions, or Corrections will be gratefully accepted and will be recognized here.
