Spoken (Yucatec) Maya. [Preliminary Edition].
Blair, Robert W.; Vermont-Salas, Refugio
This two-volume set of 18 tape-recorded lesson units represents a first attempt at preparing a course in the modern spoken language of some 300,000 inhabitants of the peninsula of Yucatan, the Guatemalan department of the Peten, and certain border areas of Belize. (A short account of the research and background of this material is given in the Foreword.) Each unit contains sections on basic sentences, pronunciation, grammar, drills, "listening in," conversation, and vocabulary; every sixth unit comprises a review. Yucatec material appears in phonemic transcription with intonation indicated. Instructions to the teacher for presenting drill material and to the student for response procedures are provided. Tapes accompanying the course are available at cost from the Language Laboratory of the University of Chicago. [Not available from EDRS due to marginal legibility of original document.] (AMM)
