Navy Department, Wdgkington, April 6, 1917. 
My dear Bir. von Pbeissio: The department has received through the coinmandant 
of the naval station at Guam the manuscript of your Grammar and Dictionary of the 
Chamorro Language. The energy and zeal displayed by you in the preparation of a 
work of such magnitude is fully appreciated, as is also your generous offer to place the 
results of your labor at the disposal of the department without remuneration. 

While the department recognizes the great benefit that would accrue to the depart- 
ment of education and the inhabitants of the Island of Guam through their possession 
of a textbook of this character, there are not at this time fimds available for its publi- 

I have placed this matter in the hands of the Director of Navi^l Intelligence, who 
will safeguard yo\ir manuscript and submit requisition for the publication of the work 
when funds for the purpose shall be available. 
Very respectfully, 

JosEPHUS Daniels, Secretary of the Navy.

By Edward R. von Pbeissio, Ph. D., 
Author of Etymological Compamon of the Finn-Ugrian and Magyar Idioms; Short 
HUtory of Austria- Himgary; Political Institutions of the Old World; etc. 

That the present work is the first lexicographic record in the English language of 
the Ghamorro 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 xnaterials 
on which to base outlines, which difficulties were fiui;her 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 Ghamorro equivalents in phonetic spelling; the Grerman-Ghamorro 
Dictionary, with a vocabulary of 86 pages, also adheres to the phonetic spelling and 
only the Spanish-Ghamorro Dictionary, published in Manila in 1865, maintains the 
spelling of the Ghamorro Words in accordance with the representation used by the Gha- 
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 Ghamorro 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 
«pon the author's knowledge during his preliminary investigations among the natives, 
when it was his ever-recuning 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 Ghiunorros, and although all these words 
represented, upon the most casual etymological investigation, ihe 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 Ghamorro equivalents to be adopted by him. Mr. W. E. Safford, 
author of the scholarly Grammar of the Ghamorro 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 
indta of his labors to the scrutiny of a number of Ghamorro gentlemen, the author 
was suddenly confronted by the absolute necessity for the reversal of his con- 
cluflbns. Whatever xnay have been the detailed experiences, 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 
dedsbn, reluctantly but unalterably tendered, offering no compromise on the ancient, 
illogical, impracticable, but nevertheless beloved, and therefore not to be changed, old- 
time Ghamorro 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 thoee for ifhooe especial benefit it was 
planned and executed. 

Before concluding, the author wishes to express the hope that his principal aim, 
that of the facilitation of the work of the public schools of Guam, through the placing 
into the pupils' hands of the means for the acquisition of a thorough understanding 
of the meaning of the English words learned by them in the course of their school 
term, may be accomplished. 

It is the author 's duty, as well as a pleasure, to acknowledge here the services rendered 
by the following-named gentlemen, who assisted in verifying the Chamorro equiv- 
alents in this work. Thanks for this valuable help are due to Messrs. Vicente Calvo, 
Joe6 Cruz, Vicente Herrero, Pedro Martinez, Atanacio Perez, Jos6 Roberto, Juan 
Taitano, and Francisco Taitano, all of Agafia, island of Guam. The author also 
acknowledges his indebtedness to Mr. J. Schnabel, superintendent of the schools of 
Guam, for many suggestions in connection with this work, to Mrs. W. G. Johnston, 
teacher in the Guam schools, to his wife, Mrs. Hester von Preissig, member of the 
Guam Normal School faculty, and to Messrs. Atanacio Perez and Fnuicisco Taitano for 
assistance in the final revision. The author also desires to extend his thanks to Mr. 
W. E. Saftord, for permission to use his scholarly philological study of the Grammar of 
the Chamorro Language, which has been of the greatest service in the preparation of 
this work.

a without an accent in Chamonx) is pronounced the same as the "a'* in father; or in 
the Italian n parla Italiano. 

b ahnost the same as in English, but it is not as hard, and there is a perceptible 
tendency toward " v. " 

c represents the sound of "k" before the vowels "a," "o," and "u"; in Giamorro, 
when it is desired to render the sound of *'k" before **e" and **i," the diph- 
thong "qu" is used, instead of "c." 

ch pronounced the same as ''ch" in chanty. 

d the same as in English, but softer. 

e as "a" in fate. 

f as in English. 

g is pronounced hard, as in gold, before the letters **a," "o," and "u"; the sound 
of "ge" as in the English get.ia indicated by the letters "gue," or the soimd^f 
**gi" as in the English gimp, by the letters "gui," the "u" in both cases being 
silent, except where accented (see paragraph on Accentuation); at the end of 
words the "g" is sounded hard, almost like a "k.^* 

h is always silent, and is of most infrequent use, especially at the beginning of words; 
it occurs mainly in words derived &om the Spanish. 

i pronounced like "ee" in meet; in final syllables, "e" and "i" are almost inter- 
changeable, and the apparent confusion in spelling is sanctioned by accepted 

i has the soimd of the English *'h,'' but is strongly aspirated. 

k is not used by the Chamorros; its sound in the English alphabet, as in kettle, is 
represented by the letter "c" before the vowels "a,^* "o," and *'u," and by the 
diphthong "qu" before the letters "e" and "i"; the advisability of the phonetic 
(and therefore more logical) representation of this sound was carefully considered 
in carrying out the present work, in connection with various other letters of the 
Chamorro alphabet, principally " j," and "11," and the adherence to the ancient 
manner of spelling was decided upon only after most searching inquiry which 
plainly disclosed the advisability of this course; one-half, or more, of the present 
work was rewritten when the author became convinced that any change in that 
direction would render his e£forts futile by proving this lexicographic work 
imacceptable to those for whose benefit it was planned. 

I is pronounced as in English. 

U carries the sound of " j " in English, but with a strong nasal twang and a trace of a 
soft "d" suggested in its articulation; the letter "y" is now generally used in 
the place of ''11," conveying the same sound. 

m pronounced as in English. 

n as in English. 

II as "ni" in onion or bunion; the same as the Spanish "fi" in NifUi. 

ISg. The pronunciation of this diphthong is somewhat diflicult of description ; in Cha- 
morro the letters "fig," unless followed by a second "g," never convey the sound 
of "ng" in the English finger; when bearing the characteristic accent extending 
over both letters, the pronunciation strongly suggests a reversal of the two letters, 
the combined soimd being that of a gutteral "g," begun in the throat, but not

finished, and followed by a soft "H" (much the same as the '^fi'' in the Spanish 
JVtfta), thus producing, first, an unfinished "g".and an "fi," or the sound value 
resembling ''gfi.'' 

o as in no. 

p the same as in English. 

qu used to represent the sound of "k" before the vowels "e" and "i.** 

r as in English. 

• 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 sound, 
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 betwe^i the letters '*u" and ''o" as has been described under the lette 
''i""; thus tdotao is often spelled tdtUau, it being impossible to make a proper 
division on account of the soimd 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 s are not used in Chamorro.

Accents have been used in the present wotk 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 accent is usually on the first syllable, and this is the 
case even though the word be adopted from t^e Spanish, the latter language requiring 
the accent in such words to be placed on the last syllable. Thus th^ Chamorro 
cdjetf derived from the Spanish oajHy or bdiiorif identical with the Spanish bastdn, 
have the accent in the Chamorro equivalent on the first syllable, while the Spanish 
words carry the accent on the second syllablei 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, dpacA (white), also written 
dpacd, has the acute accent indicated over the first vowel, to indicate that the stress 
falls 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; 
tatdjo (my father) bears emphasis on the second, and tatanmdme (omi father) has the 
stress on the third 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 &, 6, t, d, or il is to be accented, or when the stress falls on a 
syllable with & or fl, 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 Chamorro, two dots being placed over 
the "a" when this vowel is preceded by the definite article, thus, "&." 

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 Chamorro 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 artictilation of the vowel is begun as iisual, 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 
is accomplished by placing over it two dots, as follows: "gtte," and "gdi."

(a) indefinite akticle. 

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. 

on laje (a man), 
on pal6aan (a woman) . 
un patgon (a child), 
on r&ina (a queen). 

(b) depinite abticle. 

7 (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; 7 chetda (the banana). 
u is changed to i, pfigiift; 7 piguft (the betel-nut). 
Note. — See fourth paragraph under ''Accentuation" with reference to ch|mge in 
vowel "a." 


Before titles and names of persons and animals: si; also si tata (the &ther) and 
si nana (^e mother). 

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

7 lajimo as Isaac (thy son Isaac). 

7 mdjnalum as Jose (the wise Joseph; or, Joseph, the wise). 
Before places, rivers, natural objects, denoted by names of no known signification: 
iya; 7 ya. 
For example: 

i7a catan; 7 7a catan (the north). 

d&ngculo i7a JTagatfla; d&iSJ^ulo 7 7a JTagatfla (Agafia is large). 


The grammatical gender is not known in the Chamorro language. The natural gen- 
der is designated by the prefixes laje (man) or pal6uan (woman), and the sex of 
mammals is sometimes indicated by toro (bull) or baca (cow). 

laje na maaog (cock) . * 

pal&uan na maxiog (hen). 
toro na chiba (he-goat). 
baca na chiba (she-goat).

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

(a) Mutual or reciprocal relationship is represented by the dual number, formed by 
inserting the particle um before the first vowel oi the primitive word. 

dh41o; dh41a (brother, or sister). 

chuxnilo (two brothers). 

dhuxnila (two sisters). 

pexientes (kinsman). 

y pumarientes (the [two] kinsmen). 
(&) The plural form is indicated by sija, generally as a suffix, but may also pre- 
cede it. 

guxna (bouse). 

siJa na gqma (houses). 
Certain nouns form the plural by taking the prefix man, which in scmie cases changes 
the initial letter <^ the primitive word. 

oh to ft, eh61o; mafiMo (brother; brothers). 

f to m, fafajan; maxnafajaa (buyer; buyers). 

e and qu to ng:, Quilisyano; Maiignlllayaiio (Christians). 

p to m, pal4; mamal^ (pester; patres). 

a to ft, aaque; maftaque (thief; thieves). 

t to n, tAilaye; manlUlaye (villain; villains). 

laje (man); lalaje (m^). 

jaga (daughter); Jajaga (daugjiters). 

patgon (child); faxnagii<m (children). 

|M^^#ii'^'' (w<»n«i); famalftuan (women). 

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

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

si Ja 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. 

agalSfc «i Pedro (call Pedro). 

n4e si Pedro nu este na leblo (give thb 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 leUon Jose (the book of Jose). 

si ICaxian quiqud (Mary, the wife of Francis). 


There are but few words in Chamorro Vhich 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, sufiixes, and infixes. In the present 
work the classification given by W. E. Safford in his Granmiar of the Chamorro Lan- 
guage has been adopted.

(rf) Conjunctive particle. 

The particle na. 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 ohiba (young goat). 
gvdfmauleg na pal6uan (good woman). 
y tftilaye na chalan (the bad road, or street). 
The particle na is omitted where the adjective expresses an inherent attribute, 
as in 7 &tulo£g^ aga (the black crow). 

(e) PredicaU adjectives. 

The particle na is not used in connection with predicate adjectives. There being 
no copulative verb in the Chamorro language, the predicate adjective may be con- 
sidered to have a verbal nature. H6uleg (good) may be translated as to 6^ good. 
Nouns, when used as adjectives, may also be considered as verbs. The predicate 
adjective usually precedes the subject. 

m&uleg 7 laje (good is the man; the man is good). 

gvdtmauleg 7 pal6uan (the woman is very good). 

magajet 7 ainatf^Ti (the story is true). 

dhagd 7 chalan (the road is long). 

o&dad& 7 inepe (the reply is short). 

o&Jag& 7 tijotf^ (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 nt; in a descriptive phrase the relative na (distinct 
from the adjectival particle na), is used. 

7 patgon nt 7 malatf^ (the child who is aick; expressing: the sick child). 
7 dhMumo nl 7 dfqniqiil (the brother of youn who is little; expressing: your 
little brother). ♦ 

Descriptive phrases: 

gaaJa.ni7og gai gaim& na sdndatfgeulo (in the house is a ver7 laige coooa- 

Julil untujotf^ na o&laoh4 (I saw a mud-covered hat). 

(g) Comparison of adjectives. 

(Comparison is expressed by the possessive sufllx na, followed by que. 

etogofla que guajo (smaller in stature than I). 

ftpacftfLa que Jago (whiter than thou). 
Equality is expressed by the prefix oh&. 

ohftmiaacan (as old as). 

miiiaoan (old). 
Equality, but in a lower degree, is expressed by 1& and ohat. 

l&&pacft (somewhat white). 

ehatftpaoft (poorly white; not white white).

(a) Jayi, Jaye, jai, or jae denote wKo^ 

Jayi siJa na tftotaoP {what peoplef literally, viho peoplef). 
Jai na raiP (what king? literally, who hingf). 
(6) Jala, jaf. Although correctly translated what (or which), this word has 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 correct use): 
Jaf na eatoP (what cat?). 
Jala na gum&P (which house?). 
The choice between the two forms, Jaf a or Jaf, is merely one of euphony. 

(c) Hano signifies either where or which.

Jaftaimano na lebloP {what kind of bookf literally, what-like hookf),

the nature of the nouns they modify. (Very rarely used; replaced by ouanto; 
eoantos; jaf taimano minegaelLa.)

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.

many nights?). 
fafia na taotaoP ouanto na t6otaaP (how many people?), 
fliyai na gumftP Jaftaimano mineg&eAa na guzn&P (how many houses?).

ments, as, for example, t6gflan yini na sagmanP (how many [fathoms long] is this 
boat?); also f&JafaP (how many times?).

(how, like what, what like, where like); taigttine (thus, like this, like here); tai- 
giienao (thus, like that, like there), or taigttije (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, g(i6nao, and gtlije, may be used as adjec- 
tives before nouns and are connected with the latter by the particle na. 

taigtUne na flnttinaa (such an act as this; literally, such-like act). 
taig(i6nao na leblo (such a book as that [near you]). 
taigUije na t&otao (such a person as that [yonder]).

No mention is made herein of the interesting, but now obsolete, old numeral sys- 
tem, and only a few of the old GhamoiTO numerals are retained in derived words. 
The modem numerals have been adopted from the Spanish. 

(a) Cardinal numbers:

(6) Ordinals: 

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

(Or, 7 segtindo, from the Spanish; 7piimero, 7 tetsero, etc., are alt 

in use.)

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

tree na t&otao (three persons). 

tres na famag^iion (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-acuaouatro juld (they were coming up four-by-four). 
ufan-adi6die8 nxag^ (they wiU con^e here ten-by-ten). 


In the Ohamorrp 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. 

janxe (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. 

g^ajo lumfttinaa 6nao (I did that), 
g^ya 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 un 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). 

£La (his; her; its).

ta (our, inclusive). 

xname (our, exclusive). 

miyo (your). 

fiija (their). 
(5) In the case of animals: 

gftjo (my). 

gftmo (thy). 

gftfia (his; her; its). 

gftta (our, inclusive). 

gftmame (our, exclusive). 

gftmiyo (your). 

gftfiija (their). 
It will be seen, therefore, that the reference to animals is indicated by the infix gft. 

7 gftjo na gftlago (my dog). 

7 gftmo na maaog (thy fowl). 

7 gftfia na b&bui (his pig). 

7 gftta na oarabao (our buffalo, inclusive). 

7 gftmame na oarabao (our buffalo, exclusive). 

7 gftmi7o na ohiba (your goat). 

7 gftf&ija na £|^alSS:& (their duck). 
<c) In the case of inanimate objects: 

17000 -(my). 

i7omo (thy). 

i70fia (his; her; its). 

i7ota (our, inclusive). 

iyonmame (our, exclusive). 

i7onmi7o (your). 

iyonfiija (tiieir). 


Almost any word in the Ghamoiro 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. 


J6nao (to go; to walk), 
m&ilft (to come). 
saga (to stay). 
falago (to run). 
agang (to call out). 
fftpos (to pass). 
tunog (to descend). 
basnag (to &tll). 
Jag6 (to reach), 
tagft (to cut). 

tugud (to write). 

t&itai (to ledte; to read). 

ason (to lie down). 

natfg^o (to swim). 

fato (to arrive). 

taiq^iiis (to weep). 

goinem, or guimen (to drink). 

ohuld (to carry). 

yvM (to throw away). 

paoha (to touch). 

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

Verbs having a certain direct object are classed as transitive. 


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

As intransitive are classed (a) verbs denoting mofion 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 boing

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, ohuld becomes fanuld, etc.)- 

In the case of some transitive verbs the insertion of the infix um 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 tumlUtai este na leblo P (who has read this book?) would be 
used, while Jat&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 um; 
(d) Tlie intransitive verb.

Note.— The orthography in many instances is quite uncertain, therefore attention 
is invited again to the frequent substitution of i for e and o for a, and vice versa. 
The uncertain pronundation of these vowels itself forms probably the fundamental 
reason tor the fact cited, so that it may not be incorrect to designate the substitution 
of these letters as being permisBU>le throufi^ accepted usage. Thus, in the above 
examples, en may be written for in, un for on, in for en, on for un. The other 
prefixes remain invariable, and should be remwnbered, as follows:

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 i; or (6) 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, tha active construction prevails. 

Ju-patmada Jau (I am beating the^ ). 
on-n&e-yO (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 ni leblo (he gives you the book). 

(3) If both subject and object are in the third person, eitlier 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.

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.

mudga 76 xnalago (I do not want to run). 


This is translated by ch&mo, the equivalent of the Latin ''noli'' or German ''wolle

and only a few illustrations are given below: 

ch&mo f ain6niooat I (do not go t ) . 

ohftmo fal&lago ! (do not run I). 

dh&miyo fcuijijanau I (do not go I [plural]).

Examples of defective expressions: 

J6caft (I do not know). 

nft-Jo, or, as plural, nA-ta (give me, or give us, something to eat). 


lamen (to be good for something; to be useful). 

Jaf ulamen este na atbotP (what is this tree good for?). 

Jaf onlamen giiineP (what are you here for?).

composed of the demonstrative pronouns preceded by the preposition gtii, indicating 
at or to.

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. As 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 accompUshment. 

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 wrill 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) "&'' 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 extra 
annotation will be realized.

vernacular in Guam for the celebrated

at first is green, becoming brownish when

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 tai>a, 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 do^o^ (or doffdug) and the 
l^mae; the frmt of nie former is 
seldom eaten, it being inferior to that 
of the l^xnae; the seeds, however, 
called iuu%c&, are rich in oil and are 
relished by the natives; horses and 
cattle are very fond of the leaves and 
the bark, ancl 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.)
