Tepehua Indian Language

Tepehua is a Totonacan language of central Mexico, spoken by between eight and ten thousand people there. The Tepehua language is completely unrelated to the similarly-named Tepehuan language of western Mexico, which is a Uto-Aztecan language. There are three dialects of Tepehua (called Tepehua de Pisa Flores, Tepehua de Tlachichilco, and Tepehua de Huehuetla) which are quite different from each other and are considered separate languages by many linguists. Tepehua is an agglutinative language and has SVO word order.
