Vocabulary Words in the Mixe-Zoque Language Family

Our Central American vocabulary sets do not include phonetic transcription. Since these Mixe-Zoquean words came from different sources with different orthographies, the value of comparing them to each other is limited. For example, the "x" that is used in some Mixe-Zoque words and the "" that is used in others are pronounced the same way, like the "sh" in "shy." In some orthographies the "c" is pronounced in the Spanish fashion (in other words, like a "s" before an "e" or "i" and like a "k" elsewhere) and in other orthgraphies it is pronounced as "ts" or "ch."

If you would like to know a Mixe-Zoque word that is not currently on our page, you can take part in our American Indian translations fundraiser or visit our main Mixe-Zoque languages site for more free resources.
