Book Information

   

Title: An Introduction to Classical Nahuatl
Description:

Now available to an English-speaking audience, this book is a comprehensive
grammar of classical Nahuatl, the literary language of the Aztecs. It offers
students of Nahuatl a complete and clear treatment of the language’s structure,
grammar, and vocabulary. It is divided into 35 chapters, beginning with basic
syntax and progressing gradually to more complex structures. Each
grammatical concept is illustrated clearly with examples, exercises, and
passages for translation. A key is provided to allow students to check their
answers. By far the most approachable textbook of Nahuatl available, this book
will be an excellent teaching tool both for classroom use and for readers
pursuing independent study of the language. It will be an invaluable resource to
anthropologists, ethnographers, historians, archaeologists, and linguists alike.
