Qs: Yucatec Maya - Chan Santa Cruz Maya Subdivision

Editor for this issue: Dan Parker <danlinguistlist.org>

We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.

In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.

To post to LINGUIST, use our convenient web form at http://linguistlist.org/LL/posttolinguist.html.

Fellow Linguists,

When checking ethnologue.com I just came across the subdivision ''Chan
Santa Cruz Maya'' as being a branch of Yucatec Maya in its own right. This
does most probably refer to the descendants of the so-called Cruzo'ob (or
Chan Santa Cruz)-Maya from the Caste War of Yucatan. Finishing my Ph.D.
thesis on this topic I am well aware that they have/had certain political
and cultural autonomies but I never thought of them or saw them being
classified as linguistically distinct. Unfortunately I cannot find a good
reason for such a subdivision either on ethnologue or elsewhere on the web.

Does anyone know of any publications (apart from ethnologue) in whatever
form which deal somehow with especially this type of classification?

Any comment or suggestion welcome! And yes, I will post a summary, if possible.

Thanks in advance, cheers!
