Mopan Maya-Spanish-English Dictionary
Charles Andrew Hofling
This is a highly valuable dictionary of the Mopan (Mayan) language. In addition to its many entries, it also provides an introductory grammatical description, as well as general dictionary features such as parts of speech, examples, cross-references, variant forms, homophones, and indexes. The book also contains special sections on orthography and pronunciation unique to this important Mayan language, as well as translations into English and Spanish.
The dictionary has the merits well known from other dictionaries of indigenous languages of the Americas, preserving knowledge systems as they are encoded in vocabulary and providing valuable information for numerous fields, including Mayanists, Mesoamericanists, American Indian scholars, anthropologists, historians, linguists, students of Mayan hieroglyphic writing, and members of modern Mayan communities, among others.
Charles Andrew Hofling is a professor of anthropology at Southern Illinois University. His areas of interest are Mayan languages, historical linguistics, and language revitalization. He is the author of Itzaj Maya Grammar.
