Example text

The most important limitation, however, is the test's failure to determine when negative results derive from antagonistic social attitudes or when understanding is the result of the subject's having learned another language, although it is possible to guess at the latter when intelligibility is markedly asymmetrical between two points. In any case it is doubtful that the difficulties could have been overcome given the scale of the test: more than four hundred points were tested. The problem of language vs.

Points where it departs from other classifications are justified by Rensch 1977, Suarez 1979 (Tlapanec as Otomanguean); Holt 1976 (Paya as Chibchan); Oltrogge 1977 (Tequistlatecan as related to Jicaque). For Huave as Otomanguean, Rensch 1973; as nonOtomanguean, Hollenbach 1978. A recent attempt to prove the relationship of Mayan with Mixe-Zoque is that of Brown and Witkowski 1979. The results of the intelligibility tests are from Egland and Bartholomew 1978. The second method of grouping discussed is proposed by Hockett 1958: 323-6 (not specifically for Mesoamerica).

A special case is Huave, and seemingly cogent evidence was advanced to link it with Otomanguean. However, a typological comparison of grammatical features widespread in Otomanguean showed such a marked difference from the grammatical characteristics in Huave that a relationship on the level of reconstruction seems very unlikely, and indicates that the correspondences produced should be reconsidered; furthermore, the issue is rendered more complex because of the possibility of a relationship between the Huave and Mixe-Zoque languages.
