Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jalapa Mazatec is a Mazatecan language, as of 1990 spoken by ca. 15,000 people, one-third of whom are monolingual, in 13 villages in the vicinity of the town of San Felipe Jalapa de D az in the Tuxtepec District of the Mexican state of Oaxaca. It is most closely related to Ixcatl n Mazatec, and somewhat more distantly related to the prestige variety of Mazatec, Huautla. Literacy in Jalapa is taught alongside Spanish in local schools. Jalapa Mazatec root words are primarily monosyllabic, and the intricate inflectional system is largely subsyllablic, possibly moraic. Jalapa Mazatec syllables are maximally CCGV. However, vowels distinguish several phonations, and like all Mazatec languages, Jalapa has tone.show more
