WORDS IN COMMON USE IN ASSOCIATED GROUPS

NOTE.    "Wake" (not) and "Halo" (no) are interchangeable in Chinook and are given below to mean "not" or "no" as they are commonly used in ordinary conversation; note that sometimes one is used and sometimes the other without apparent reason. This is because they are usually in conversation just as they are here, though either "Wake" or "Halo" could be used in any case for either "not" or "no" and the listener would understand the meaning.
