Nahuatl, also known as Aztec or Mexican is the most widely spoken indigenous language in Mexico and Central 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 travellers alike.
