Chamorro language, alphabet and pronunciation (176 words)
Chamorro is an Austronesian language spoken by about 50,000 people mainly in Guam, and also in the Northern Mariana Islands and the USA.
Chamorro contains a huge number of words of Spanish origin and this has lead some to mistakenly believe that it is a Spanish-based Creole.
Chamorro first started to appear in writing in 1668 when a missionary by the name of Father San Vitores devised a spelling system for the language using the Latin alphabet.
