The Basilisk: A Chorti (Mayan) Text.
Fought, John
Chorti, a Mayan language spoken in eastern Guatemala, is analyzed in this paper on the basis of a story text provided by an adult native speaker. A phonological description of Chorti is presented for background information; syllables, suprasegmentals, pause groups, articulation, and phonological rules are all considered. The author presents the transcription of the narrative along with a sentence by sentence translation. Notes on the text explain various structural phenomena as well as word interpretation where necessary. A list of references is included. (VM)
