By Edward R. von Preissio, Ph. D., 

Author of Etymological Comparison of the Finn-Ugrian and Magyar Idioms; Short 
History of Austria- Hungary; Political Institutions of the Old World; etc. 

That the present work is the first lexicographic record in the English language of 
the Chainorro idiom of the Marianas Islands, and especially of the island of Guam, is 
submitted as its principal "raison d'etre/' as well as the author's justification for 
undertaking a task rendered exceptionally difficult through the paucity of materials 
on which to base outlines, which difficulties were further amplified by the character 
of the sources at his disposal. As stated in the bibliography following, only three 
dictionaries are available at the present time, of which the Japanese-Chamorro Dic- 
tionary contains about 60 very small pages, with a vocabulary comprising 30 pages, 
presenting the Chamorro equivalents in phonetic spelling; the German-Chamorro 
Dictionary, with a vocabulary of 86 pages, also adheres to the phonetic spelling and 
only the Spanish-Chamorro Dictionary, published in Manila in 1865, maintains the 
spelling of the Chamorro words in accordance with the representation used by the Cha- 
morros of the present day, a usage which has been transmitted to them through their 
mothers from generation to generation. The fact that there has been great need for 
a printed record of the Chamorro language is brought into bold view by the evident 
losses sustained by the spoken language since the comparatively recent date of the 
publication of the last mentioned dictionary. These losses have forced themselves 
upon the author's knowledge during his preliminary investigations among the natives, 
when it was his ever-recurring experience to be compelled to abandon word after 
word contained in the work of the Spanish author, for the reason that they were no 
longer remembered by any of the living Chamorros, and although all these words 
represented, upon the most casual etymological investigation, the true genius of the 
old language, they have been lost to it forever, having apparently died with the last 

Immediately upon having finished his outline plan for this work, the present 
lexicographer was required to decide a question of the utmost importance, that of the 
spelling of the Chamorro equivalents to be adopted by him. Mr. W. E. Safford, 
author of the scholarly Grammar of the Chamorro Language of Guam, having given his 
permission for the use of his work, the careful study of the same offered a great number 
of convincing arguments in favor of the phonetic spelling, and the Work was com- 
menced in accordance with this decision. However, upon submitting the partial 
fruits of his labors to the scrutiny of a number of Chamorro gentlemen, the author 
was suddenly confronted by the absolute necessity for the reversal of his con- 
clusions. Whatever may have been the detailed exx>eriences, the consensus of 
opinion was adverse to the acceptance of any innovation, pride of race and language 
and reverence of ancestors and old-time traditions playing no small part in the final 
decision, reluctantly but unalterably tendered, offering no compromise on the ancient, 
illogical, impracticable, but nevertheless beloved, and therefore not to be changed, old- 
time Chamorro method of spelling. And thus the author resigned himself to the task 
of rewriting all the work done, and presents it now in the finished form appearing

herein, acceptable, and, he hopes, useful to those £or "Whose eepecial benefit it was 
planned and executed. 

Before concluding, the author wishes to ezprasB the hope that his principal aim, 
that of the facilitation of the work of the public sdiools of Guam, throqg|i the placing 
into the pupils' hands of the means £or the aoqnisiticm of a thoroogh undentandii^ 
of the meaning of the Kngli*^ words learned by them in the courae of their school

resembling "gfi."

8 represents both the sound of the English "s" and of the "z," the latter not being 
used in the Chamorro alphabet; no rule can be given for the distinctive soimd, 
which can be only ascertained from usage. 

t the same as in English. 

u has the sound of '^oo" in root; in final syllables there exists the same interchange- 
ability between the letters "u" and "o" as has been described imder the lette 
''i''; thus tdotao is often spelled tdvtaUf it being impossible to make a prof)er 
division on accoimt of the sound of the last syllable, which carries a value half 
way between '*o" and "u." 

y is pronounced nearly as the " j " in joke, but with a softer articulation. 

The letters x, k, v, w, and z are not used in Chamorro. 


Accents have been used in the present work only where they are of essential value, 
or where their omission would cause a change in the meaning of the words involved. 
Accordingly, the following paragraphs comprise these essentials only. 

In words of two syllables the aqcent is usually on the first syllable, and this is the 
case even though the word be adopted from the Spanish, the latter language requiring 
the accent in such words to be placed on the last syllable. Thus the Ghamorro 
cdjetj derived from the Spanish cajilj or bdaton, identical with the Spanish bast&n^ 
have the accent in the Ghamorro equivalent on the first syllable, while the Spanish 
words carry the accent on the second syllable, as noted. 

In words of more than two syllables the accent is usually on the penult, as in the 
Spanish, and in the case of variation from this rule, an acute accent is placed on the 
syllable to be accented. Agaga (red) carries no accent, as the emphasis in this word 
is on the next to the last syllable; on the other hand, dpood (white), also written 
dpacdf has the acute accent indicated over the first vowel, to indicate that the stress 
faUs upon the first syllable, in exception to the rule above given. Through the 
addition of particles to root words the accent is often shifted, and in all such cases 
must be written in. For example, tdta (father) has the accent on the first syllable; 
tcUdjo (my father) bears emphasis on the second, and tatamndme (our father) has the 
stress on the t^d syllable, indicated in each case by an acute accent placed over 
the vowel contained in the respective syllable. The acute accent is also used when 
the syllable containing &, §, i, 6, or ii is to be accented, or when the stress falls on a 
syllable with & or ti, thus: mad^fiaoj yindfcd. 

After certain words and particles there occurs a change in the vowels following. 
Thus in the case of the definite article, '^y,'' besides the complete change in the two 
vowels following, as described on the first page of the ^^Grammatical outline," from 
"o" to "e," and from "u" to "i," the prefixing of this definite article effects a change 
from the open sound of the vowel '^a" to that of ^' a'' in cat or at, and somewhat 
resembling the so-called "Umlaut" in the German language represented by "&." 
This change is indicated by the same accent in Ghamorro, two dots being placed over 
the "a" when this vowel is preceded by the definite article, thus, "a." 

A peculiar pronunciation of the vowels "a," "e,'* "i," "o," and "u," in certain 
words, especially in such as may be formed by reduplication of syllables, is indicated 
in the Ghamorro language by the accent ^ . 

Whenever this accent occurs, the respective vowel, which generally in such words 
terminates the syllable, is pronounced without change in the equivalent indicated 
in the table of pronunciation; for instance, the "d" is pronounced as the "o" in no^ 
but while the articulation of the vowel is begun as usual, the accent effects an abrupt 
and sharp termination, such as might be indicated by the sudden elision of a consonant 
intended to follow the vowel. 

When two vowels follow each other, such as "ii," or "ee," the separate pronuncia- 
tion of each is indicated by an acute accent or by the accent ^ . In the case of "ue" 
or "ui,'* when it becomes necessary to show the separate pronunciation of the **u,** 
which, when following "g," is always silent before "e" and "i," unless accented, this 

accomplished by placing over it two dots, as follows: "giie," and "gtd." 



the article. 

(a) indbfinitb article. 

No indefinite article was used in the old Chamorro idiom. In the modem vernacu- 
lar the Spanish un, in invariable form, with both masculine and feminine nouns, 
takes its place. 
Examples: « 

unlaje (a man), 
un pal&uan (a woman), 
un patgon (a child). 
un rfiina (a queen). 

(b) definite article. 

y (from the Spanish; pronounced: e) is the definite article, and is invariable; it has 
the effect of changing certain letters in the nouns following. 

o is changed to e, chotda; y chetda (the banana), 
u is changed to i, pdg^; y pfguft (the betel-nut). 
Note. — See fourth paragraph under ^ 'Accentuation '^ with reference to change in 
vowel "a.'* 


( ■ ., ' 

Before titles and names of persons and animals: si; also si tata (the fathef) and 
si nana (the mother). 

At the end of a sentence or subordinate clause, or when the proper noun is used in 
apposition: as. 
For example: 

y lajimo as Isaac (thy son Isaac). 

y xndjnaluni as Jose (the wise Joseph; or, Joseph, the wise). 
Before places, rivers, natural objects, denoted by names of no known sign^cationf 
iya; y ya. 
For example: 

iya catan; y ya catan (the north). 

d&ng^culo iya Jagat&a; d&^^ulo y ya Jagat&a (AgaiLa is large). 


The grammatical gender is not known in the Chamorro language. The natural gen- 
der is designated by the prefixes laje (man) or pal&uan (woman), and the sex of 
mammals is sometimes indicated by toro (bull) or baca (cow). 

laje na manog^ (cock). 
pal&uan na xnanog (hen), 
toro na chiba (he-goat). 
baca na chiba (she-goat). 



Nouns may be of singular, dual, or plural number. 

(a) Mutual or reciprocal relationship is represented by the dual numbet, formed by 
inserting the particle una before the first vowel of the primitive word. 


chdlo; chdla (brother, or sister). 
chumdlo (two brothers). 
chuxndla (two sisters). 
perientes (kinsman), 
y pumazientes (the [two] kinsmen). 

(b) The plural form is indicated by aija, generally as a suflix, but may also pre- 
cede it. 


giiina (house). 

sija na guina (houses). 
Certain nouns form the plural by taking the prefix man, which in some cases changes 
the initial letter of the primitive word. 

ch to fi, chdlo; maftdlo (brother; brothers). 

f to m, falajan; maxnalajan (buyer; buyers). 

c and qu to ng, QuilisTano; MangiiilisTano (Christians). 

p to m, paid; maxnald (pater; patres). 

8 to fi, saque; maflaque (thief; thieves). 

t to n, t&ilaye; manfiilaye (villain; villains). 

laje (man) ; lalaje (men) . 

}aga (daughter); Jajaga (daughters). 

patgon (child); famag^on (children). 

pal&uan (woman); famal&uan (women). 

laje (man); lajijo (my son); lajimo (thy son); lajifta (his, or her, son). 

lajinznaxne or lajite (our son); lajinzniyo (your son); lajinfiija (their son). 
A kind of plural is expressed by prefixing to proper nouns the particle Ja. 

si ]a Pedro (Pedro and his friends). 


No special form is used to indicate case, and the connection of the words in 
a sentence must decide the same. 

aga£j^ si Pedro (call Pedro). 

nfte fli Pedro nu este na leblo (give this book to Pedro). Leblo (book) 
also written lebblo. 
If the name of the object possessed ends in a vowel, the genitive or possessive 
may be indicated by adding an n. 

y leblon Jose (the book of Jose). 

ai Marian quiquO (Mary, the wife of Francis). 


There are but few words in Chamorro which may be considered true adjectives, 
as most of them are really other parts of speech formed into adjectives, participial 
adjectives, etc., by the addition of prefixes, suffixes, and infixes. In the present 
work the classification given by W. E. Safford in his Grammar of the Chamcnrro Lan- 
guage has been adopted. 


(1) Qualifying adjectives. — (a) Simple adjectives; (6) adjectival prefixes; (e) adjec- 
tival suffixes; {d) conjunctive particle; {e) predicate adjectives; (J) adjectives with 
definite article; {g) comparison of adjectives; ijk) reduplication of syllables; (t) for- 
mation of the plural. 

(2) Demonstrative adjectives. —{a) This; (6) that; (c) yon, yonder; (d) formation of 
adverbs from demonstratives. 

(3) Interrogative adjectives. 

(4) Indefinite adjectives. — (a) Limiting adjective, gfuaja; (h) indefinite adjectives 
from interrogatives; (e) negative adjectives; (d) adjectives of quantity or number; 
(<) adjectives of comparison; (/) indefinite adjectives adopted from the Spanish.

The prefix ch&t denoteia a lesser quality. 

m&ipe (hot); ch&tmaipe (not very hot; warm). 

&pao& (white); ch&t&pacft (imperfectly white). 
The prefix ti denies or reverses the quality expressed by the primitive word. 

gasgas (clean); tigasgas (unclean). 

m^jnalom (prudent); tixn^jnalom (imprudent). 

magajet (true); tixnagajet (untrue; false). 

xutoiatai (mortal); tixnamatai (immortal), 
ti may be considered as equivalent to the English **not,'' as in sifla (possible);' 
tisiiia (not possible; impossible). 
The prefix t&i signifies there is not, or tJiere is no. 

chi (limit); t&ichi (infinite; without end). 

fsao (sin); tlU-fsao (sinless; innocent). 

sin&jguan (containing); tfiisin&jguazi (empty). 

(c) Adjectival suffixes. 

The suffixes on and yon. By adding oii to certain verbs eioding in a conaonant, 
or yon, if the verb ends in a vowel, adjectives are formed expressing possibility.

ta£g^ (to desire); ta^gayon (desirable). 

goflid (to love); gofliiyon (amiable). 

ftgo (to change); &gayon (changeable).

4562—18 2 


(d) Conjunctive particle. 

The particle sa. Attributive adjectives are connected with the nouns they modify 
by means of the particle na, which is not translatable into English. 

m&uleg na t&otao (good man). 
laje na patgon (male child; boy). 
patgon na chiba (young goat). 
gu6hnauleg na pal&uan (good woman). 
7 t&ilaye na chalan (the bad road, or street). 
The particle na is omitted where the adjective expresses an inherent attribute, 
as in y &tulo£g^ aga (the black crow). 

(«) Predicate adjectives. 

The particle na is not used in connection with predicate adjectives. There being 
no copulative verb in the Ohamorro language, the predicate adjective may be con- 
sidered to have a verbal nature. M&uleg (good) may be translated as to be good. 
Nouns, when used as adjectives, may also be considered as verbs. The predicate 
adjective usually precedes the subject. 

m&uleg y laje (good is the man; the man is good). 

gu^hnauleg y pal&uan (the woman is very good). 

nxagajet y aina^gan (the story is true). 

chagd 7 dialan (the road is long). 

c&dadft 7 inepe (the reply is short). 

c&jag& 7 ti]o£g (the hat is blood-stained). 

(/) Adjectives with definite article. 

An adjective with the definite article when used in a restrictive clause follows the 
subject and is connected with it by nl; in a descriptive phrase the relative na (distinct 
from the adjectival particle na), is used. 

7 patgon nl 7 malatlgo (the child who is sick; expressing: the sick child). 
7 chdlumo nl 7 dlqulqul (the brother of yours who is little; expressing: your 
little brother). 
Descriptive phrases: 

guaja niyog gul galni& na sdndatfgoulo (in the house is a very large cocoa- 
Join untu]o£g na c&fachd (I saw a mud-covered hat). 

(jg) Comparison of ad jeetvoes. 

Comparison is expressed by the possessive suffix na, followed by que. 

etogofia que guajo (smaller in stature than I). 

ftpacftfLa que jago (whiter than thou). 
Equality is expressed by the prefix ch&. 

ohfimisaoan (as old as). 

misacan (old). 
Equality, but in a lower degree, is expressed by 16 and ohat. 

l&&pacft (somewhat white). 

ohat&pac& (poorly white; not white white).

{d) Adverbs derived from demonstratives. Accomplished by prefixing and absorb- 
ing gui (signifying in or at). 

gui yini (literally, in this); gttine (here). 

gui y6nao (literally, in that); gttdnao (there). 


(a) Jayi, jaye, jai, or jae denote who? 

Jayi sija na t&otaoP (what people f literally, who peoplef), 
Jai na raiP (what king? literally, who kingf), 

(b) Jala, jai. Although correctly translated what (or which), this word lias a 
much broader use, and in accordance with inflection is utilized to convey a number of 
meanings, such as greeting, casual inquiry as to purpose, intention, reason, or destina- 
tion, as well as the state of health, etc. 

Examples (of corract use): 

jai na catoP (what cat?). 

jafa na gum&P (which house?). 
The choice between the two forms, jala or jai, is merely one of euphony. 

(c) Mano signifies either where or which. 

mano na lebloP (which book? literally, where bookf). 

jaltaimano na leblo P (what bind of bookf literally, what-like bookf). 

(d) Fia, lafia, fiiyaiP These forms, signifying how many, are used according to 
the nature of the nouns they modify. (Very rarely used; replaced by cuanto; 
euantos; jai taimano minegaefia.) 


Fia, used in reckoning time; fafia, used for questions pertaining to the number of 
persons or living things in general; fliyai, used in connection with inanimate objects. 

jla pue£gueP replaced by cuantos diasP (how many days? literally, how 

many nights?), 
fafla na taotaoP cuanto na t&otasP (how many people?), 
fliyai na g^umftP jaltaixn^o minegfiefia na gtim&P (how many houses?). 
Another derived interrogative is tagfUiP, used in questions involving measure- 
ments, as, for example, t&gflan yini na sagnxanP (how many [fathoms long] is tiiis 
boat?); also f&jafaP (how many times?). 


(a) The limiting adjective g^uaja signifies there is or there are. Like all other words 
in Chamorro, guaja may be used as several parts of speech. 

guaja na tuba (some toddy). 
guaJa na lalaje (some men). 
guaja sija nianog (some fowls). 
guaja sija na guni& (some houses). 
(6) Indefinite adjectives from interrogatives formed by the suflix ja. 

jaej& na taotao (whatsoever person). 
Jayijft na laje (whatsoever man). 
Jaf jft na gumft (whatsoever house).

(how, like what, what like, where Uke); taigiiine (thus, like this, like here); tai- 
giienao (thus, like that, like there), or taigiiije (thus, like that, like yonder), which 
are derived from the demonstratives ini, 6nao, and yuje, or more directly from the 
corresponding adverbs of place, gUine, gtt^nao, and giUjey may be used as adjec- 
tives before nouns and are connected with the latter by the particle na. 

taigiiine na flnfttinaB (such an act as this; literally, such-like act). 
taigU^nao na leblo (such a book as that [near you]), 
taigiiije na t&otao (such a person as that [yonder]). 
jal taimano na leblo malagdmoP (what kind of a book do you wish?), 
taigiiine na leblo (this kind of a book).

(5) Ordinals: 

7 findnana (the first). 
7 minft dos (the second). 

(Or, y sesTundo, from the Spanish; y primero, y tetsero, etc., areak 

in use.) 
7 minft tres (the third). 
7 minft cuatro (the fourth). 
7 minft since (the fifth). 
7 minft sais (the sixth). 
7 minft sais (the sixth). 

7 minft siete (the seventh). » 

7 minft ocho (the eighth). 
7 minft nuebe (the ninth). 
7 minft di6s (the^tenth). 
7 minft onse (the eleventh). 

(Ordinals from the Spanish are not used beyond the tenth, ddsimo.^ 
4ttimo (the last). 


Note. — ^Both cardinal and ordinal numbers are connected with the noun by the 
particle na, as, bente na gUiJan (twenty fishes). The noun following the numerals 
remains in the singular; exception is made, however, in the case of nouns forming 
irregular plural. 
For example: 

tree na t&otao (three persons). 

tree na famag^lon (three children), 
(c) Distributives. Distributives are formed by prefixing the particles fan- and a-, 
before the cardinal number. The numeral is thus put into verbal form. The prefix 
f an-a- is changed in the indicative, past and present tense into man-a-. 

man-acuacuatro Juld (they were coming up four-by-four), 
ufan-adi^dies magui (they will come here ten-by-ten). 


In the Chamorro language the pronoun has only two forms, namely, the singular and 
plural, and in this differs from the Tagalog and the Polynesian languages. With verbs 
the dual is expressed, in certain conjugations, by the singular form of the verb accom- 
panied by the plural form of the pronoun. 

There are two forms for the first person, plural, best designated as being either inclu- 
sive or exclusive. 

jita (we) signifies you and I, therefore inclusive. 

jame (we) signifies he or she or they and I, classed as exclusive, as it excludes 
the person addressed. 


There are two forms of the personal pronoun, styled the long and the short. The 
first is used when the pronoun precedes the verb, and when the pronoun is used with- 
out a verb, as in abbreviated sentences and after prepositions. 

guajo fumfttinas 6nao (I did that). 
guiya Jita (with us; at our house; the French, chez nous). 
The short form of the personal pronoun is used where the same is preceded by the 

chulie yd iin manja (bring me a coconut). 



(he; she), 
(we, inclusive), 
(we, exclusive), 


The possessive pronoun is expressed differently in the case of (a) persons, (6) ani- 
mals, and (c) things inanimate, 
(a) Indicated by a suffix, as follows: 

jo or CO (my). 

mo (thy). 

fla (his; her; its). 


















ta (our, inclusive), 
zname (our, exclusive), 
miyo (your). 
fiija (their). 

(b) In the case of animals: 
g&jo (my). 

g&mo (thy). 

gdiLa (his; her; its). 

g&ta (our, inclusive). 

g&mame (our, exclusive). 

gkxxdyo (your). 

g&£Lija (their). 
It will be seen, therefore, that the reference to animals is indicated by the infix g&. 

y g&jo na g&lago (my dog). 

y gdjno na xnanog (thy fowl). 

y g^a na b&bui (his pig). 

y g&ta na carabao (our buffalo, inclusive). 

y g&mame na carabao (our buffalo, exclusive). 

y gdjniyo na chiba (your goat). 

y g&fiija na ng^a^g^ (their duck). 

(c) In the case of inanimate objects: 
iyoco -(my). 

iyomo (thy). 

iyofta (his; her; its). 

iyota (our, inclusive). 

iyonmame (our, exclusive). 

iyonmiyo (your). 

iyonfLija (their). 


Almost any word in the Chamorro language may be used as a verb, but there are 
certain words expressing motion, condition, or action, which may be considered true 
verbs in their primitive form. 

jtoao (to go; to walk). 

nx&il& (to come). 

saga (to stay). 

falago (to run). 

agang (to call out). 

f&poB (to pass). • 

tunog (to descend). 

basnag (to fall). 

Jagd (to reach). 

tag& (to cut). 

tugud (to write). 

t&itai (to recite; to read). 

ason (to lie down). 

nsj^o (to swim). 

fato (to arrive). 

tsj^uis (to weep). 

guinem, or guimen (to drink). 

ohuld (to carry). 

yut6 (to throw away). 

pacha (to toudi). 

In the Chamorro language all verbs are classed as either transitive or intransitive. 

Verbs having a certain direct object are classed as taransitive. 


t&itai 6nau (or ^nao) na leblo (read that book). 

As intransitive are classed (a) verbs denoting motion or position, having no direct 
object; (6) transitive verbs, when they have no object at all, or when their use indicates 
an uncertain, indefinite object. Thus, to read, and to read books, are both classed as 
intransitive, the first, when standing alone, having no object at all, and the second 
denoting an object insufficiently definite. The conjugation of the verbs applying to 
(b) is that of the transitive form, with the addition of the prefix fan, the latter being 


modified in the past tense and in the infinitive into man. (The addition of the pre 
fixes fan or man has the effect of changing the letters following, as in the case of the 
particle denoting the plural, for instance, chuld becomes fannldi etc.). 

In the case of some transitive verbs the insertion of the infix tun accomplishes the 
accentuation of the fact that the action described has received previous mention or is 
already known. For example, when speaking of a book that has already been men- 
tioned, the form Jaye tumfiitai este na leblo P (who has read this book?) would be 
used, while Jut&itai este na leblo (I have read this book) would indicate reference 
to a book not known to the person or persons addressed. 

Avoiding undue elaboration, the following examples of conjugations have been 
selected: (a) The transitive verb with a direct object; (6) The transitive verb without 
a direct object (with the prefix fan-); (c) The transitive verb with the infix mn; 
(d) The intransitive verb. 

(a) the transitive verb with a direct obhsct.

Note.— The orthography in many instances is quite uncertain, therefore attention 
is invited again to the frequent substitution of i f or e and o f or u, and vice versa. 
The uncertain pronunciation of these vowels itself forms probably the fundamental 
reason for the fact cited, so that it may not be incorrect to designate the substitution 
'Of these letters as being permisaible through accepted usage. Thus, in the above 
examples, •n may be written for in, un for on, in for en, on for un. The other 
prefixes remain invariable, and should be remembered, as foUows:

There are two constructions to express the passive form of a verb, in which the 
object of the active verb becomes the subject: (a) By inserting the infix in before the 
first vowel, and changing o into e and u into 1; or (b) by the prefix ma-. 

gode (to bind). 

guinede or ma-gode (to be bound). 


(1) If the subject is in the first or second person, the active construction prevails. 

Ju-patmada Jau (I am beating thee). 
on-n&e-yd (you are giving me). 

(2) If the subject is in the third person and the object in the second, the passive 
form is used, with in inserted. 


bin&b& Jau as tata (the father is beating thee) . ' 

mannin&e Jamyo nl leblo (he gives you the book). 

(3) If both subject and object are in the third person, either the active or the passive 
form may be used. ^ 

Examples of the passive form: 

To be bound, guinede. 
Past tense: 

First, singular (I was being bound), guinede yd. 

Second, singular, guinede Jau. 

Third, singular, guinede gUi. 

First, plural, inclusive, man-magode Jit; exclusive, man-magode Jam. 

Second, plural, man-magode Jamyo. 

Third, plural, man-magode siJa. 



First, smgular (I shall be bound), Ju-magode.

First, plural, inclusive, utafan-xnagode; exclusive, in-fan-xnagode. 

Second, plural, en-fan-zuagode. 

Third, plural, uja-fan-xnagode. 


The conjugation or inflection of reflexive verbs is the same as that of active verbs 
with a definite object, except that it is followed by the personal pronoun. 

jubale yo (I am waiting on myself). 
In some instances zuaisa is also added, as follows: 

ja-fa&il& m&isa gul (he accused himself). 


As shown under the paragraphs on adjectives, the addition of the causative prefix 
na, denoting cause, permission, initiating action, effects the transformation of such 
adjectives into transitive verbs, and of intransitive verbs into transitive verbs. 

gasgas, adj. (clean). 

n&-gasgas, v. tr. (to clean; to make clean). 

ason, V. i. (to be lying down). 

nlL-ason, v. tr. (to lay down; to put down). 
In the example following, the addition of the particle fan in the plural, following 
the prefix na, is to be noted. 

jan&-gasgas y guizn& (he is cleaning the house). 

jan&fan-gasgas y gui2n& sija (he is cleaning the houses). 
In other respects the conjugation follows that of the transitive verb with a definite

Reciprocal verbs are formed by adding the prefix a-. 

gode (to take hold of; also, to bind). 

&-gode (to take hold of each other). 


(a) To have. This is translated by guaja or gai, and the negation is expressed by 
tayA or tai.

with water). 
n&e jam p&go nu y agonmame (give us our daily bread).

Note. — ^The author realizes that the greatest usefulness of his work will not be in 
the direction of aiding Americans in the acquisition of a knowledge of the Chamorro 
tongue, but rather in the actual help toward a more thorough appreciation of the 
English language by the Chamorro children. He has not seen fit, therefore, to extend 
the use of accents in this dictionary to anything resembling scholarly thoroughness 
and precise consistency. Accents are used in the daily life of the Chamorros but 
most sparingly, and the practice is that of leaving out, indiscriminately, all but those 
accents which by their application practically decide the meaning and interpretation 
of the word concerned. A.s in other eastern languages, an absolutely correct interpre- 
tation and articulation can be acquired only by the help of native teachers, and the 
extension of the annotation of accents in this work, to constitute a real factor, would 
offer a return very much out of proportion to the extraneous effort necessary for such 
an accomplishment. 

However, the author anticipates, and hopes, that there will be ambitious Americans 
and others, even though their number be small, who would wish to be given at least 
a partial guide toward a correct enunciation (in so far as it can be ascertained from 
present usage) of the Chamorro idiom, and in the interest of these he has applied 
special care in the application of accents in the English-Chamorro part of the dictionary 
under the captions of the letters of the alphabet " a, " " b, " and " c. ' * It will be noted 
by observant students that the shadings of the letters are indicated painstakingly, 
especially in the case of the vowel "a," the least variation in the enunciation leaning 
toward the so-called " Umlaut'* (in German) "a" being indicated by the corresponding 
accentuation. It is hoped that those for whose especial use this practice was adopted 
will be encouraged by it toward further investigation, and that the purpose of this ex1a*a 
annotation will be realized.

dogdog, n.; also written dugdug: — 
vernacular in Guam for the celebrated 
breadfruit tree, bearing an oval fruit 
about the size of a small melon; the fruit 
at first is green, becoming brownish when 
imperfectly ripe, and yellow when fully 
so; it is eaten before it becomes ripe, 
and is either boiled or baked in ovens, 
or it is cut in slices and fried like pota- 
toes; a kind of biscuit is also made by 




drying the fried slices in the sun or in 
ovens; this lasts from one bread- 
fruit season to another: the tree also 
yields tapa, a native cloth, and a glue 
and calking are obtained from the viscid 
milky juice exuding copiously from in- 
cisions made in the stem; the tapa, or 
cloth, manufactured from the inner 
bark, is no longer made in Guam; the 
tree grows everywhere on the island, 
in the woods, on rocky cliffs, and in 
low, sandy soil; it is the chief source of 
timber and gum; there are two varie- 
ties, the dogdo^ {or duedug) and the 
16niae; the fruit of me former is 
seldom eaten, it being inferior to that 
of the Idxnae; the seeds, however, 
called na£^&, are rich in oil and are 
relived by the natives; horses and 
cattle are very fond of the leaves and 
the bark, and young trees have to be 
protected from them; when pasture is 
scarce breadfruit leaves are gathered 
and fed to the stock; the fruit is so 
abundant that it is fed to cattle, horses, 
and pigs. (Safford.)

the margins of streams; the nut is held 
in high esteem by the natives, who 
chew it together with the leaf of the 
betel pepper (the cava plant of Poly- 
nesia)! the nut is divided and a piece 
of it is wrapped in the pepper leaf, 
together with a pinch of quicklime; it 
imparts a red color to the saliva, injures 
the teeth, and sometimes almost de- 
stroys them; the nut is called either 
ptigua, or by its Tagalog name bonga; 
the leaf is called pupulu, or by the 
Visayan name bujro, and the packet 
made for chewing is called mamaon; 
at all wedding assemblies (fandang- 
gos) and funerals the chewing of betel 
IS a matter of etiquette in Guam.
