Abstract: In modern Mexico and Guatemala there are between 2 and 2.5 million speakers of 28 Mayan languages. As a group they rank next to Quechua speakers of Peru and Equador as one of the most impressive surviving Amerindian linguistic and cultural units in the western hemisphere (Vogt 1969). As geography and modern distribution suggest, with the exception of the Huastecs, various Maya groups have been in contact for many centuries. Linguists generally define three major subgroups of Mayan: l) Huastecan, 2) Yucatecan and 3) southern Mayan.
