Summary

This book explores change and continuity in one of the most vital areas of Mayan culture--language use. The authors look specifically at Kaqchikel, one of the most commonly spoken Mayan languages, with case studies of three highland communities in which the balance is shifting between Kaqchikel and Spanish.
