Western Q'anjob'al: See Acatec

"Western Q'anjob'al" (or Western Qanjobal) is an alternate name for the Acatec language. The Akateko and Q'anjob'al languages are closely related, and Acatec was once considered a dialect of Q'anjob'al. Today, the Mexican government and most linguists recognize Akateko as a distinct language.
