Etymology[edit]

From Lower Chehalis c̓inúk (the name of a Chinook village on the Columbia river)

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ʃɪˈnʊk/, /tʃɪˈnuːk/

Noun[edit]

chinook (plural chinooks)

  1. (Canada, physics, meteorology) The descending, warm, dry wind on the eastern side of the Rocky Mountains. The chinook generally blows from the southwest, but its direction may be modified by topography. When it sets in after a spell of intense cold, the temperature may rise by 20–40°F in 15 minutes due to replacement of a cold air mass with a much warmer air mass in minutes.
  2. The chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha).
