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.
