Language Death and Relexification in Tlaxcalan Nahuatl
Hill, Jane; Hill, Kenneth
Linguistics, 191, 55-70, May 24 77
Enormous numbers of Spanish words are used by speakers of Tlaxcalan Nahuatl, an indigenous language of Mexico. The major function of the language is to support the speakers' self-identification. As speakers feel it more beneficial to improve their Spanish, relexification is contributing to the death of the language. (AMH)
