Mazahua is an Oto-Manguean language of Mexico.
Mazahua is sometimes confused with the similarly-named Mazatec
languages, both of which are sometimes referred to as "Mazateco," but Mazahua and Mazatec speakers cannot understand each other
There are two varieties of Mazahua, known as Central Mazahua and Mazahua de Michoacán, which are considered
separate languages by some people and dialects of the same language by others. Taken together there are about 350,000
Mazahua speakers in Mexico today. They are tone languages and have primarily VSO word order.
