Zoque is a Mixe-Zoquean language of Mexico.
Actually there are between two and five different
Zoque languages--Zoque de Chiapas, Zoque de Oaxaca, and Zoque de Tabasco are different enough that speakers
of one cannot understand speakers of the others, and some linguists even consider the different dialects of Zoque
de Chiapas distinct enough to be separate languages. Two
languages of Veracruz are also closely related to Zoque and are sometimes referred to as Zoque de Veracruz. In total
nearly 40,000 people speak Zoque languages in Chiapas, Oaxaca, and Tabasco today, and another 30,000 speak the
two Popoluca Zoquean languages.
