Classification: Mayan


critically endangered

A general article in the journal Linguistics by Nora C. England and Roberto Zavala Maldonado exploring many dying and extinct Mayan languages, including Mocho'. Covers many aspects of each language, like phonology and grammar, and explores the relative lack of research into Mayan language and culture as a whole. Very useful for historical and cultural context, as well as information on the actual study of Mocho' and surrounding languages.
