Nahuatl-English English-Nahuatl Concise Dictionary (Hippocrene Concise Dictionary)by Fermin Herrera
Synopses & Reviews
Nahuatl, also known as Aztec or Mexican, is the most widely spoken indigenous language of North America. Spoken by the Aztecs centuries ago, 1.5 million people in Mexico and Central America continue to speak it today. This bilingual dictionary reflects usage largely based on classical norms of the Nahuatl literary tradition, but also includes more contemporary vocabulary. Entries contain the part of speech and the preterit stems. An extensive grammar section and a guide to Nahuatl pronunciation complete this work, which is sure to be of interest to scholars, students, and travelers alike.
Book News Annotation:
Nahuatl is spoken by more than a million and a half people in Mexico and Central America, and is related to several Native American languages, including those of the Shoshone, Comanche, and Paiute nations. This dictionary covers the classical norms of the language, with pronunciation guides, a section on grammar, and Nahuatl-English and English-Nahuatl dictionaries, including regional alternatives. It closes with a quick reference guide.
