Product Description

Lealao Chinantec Language New Testament

Ja̱³la³ fáh⁴dxa⁴²dxú⁴ hi³mɨɨ³² chiáh² Ñúh³a² Jesucristo; Salmos (CLENT)

Mexico

 

 

The Chinantec language spoken in the town of San Juan Lealao, Oaxaca, is also spoken in the towns of Tres Arroyos and Hondura.The inhabitants of San Juan Lealao had to travel progressively greater distances in the 20th century to find sufficient land to farm. Before the beginning of the 21st century, the small settlements towards the east and south of San Juan Lealao came to be the towns of Tres Arroyos and Hondura. Hondura is the smallest of these three towns, and the combined population is approximately 2000. There are also a few speakers of this language who live in Latani and Santa María Yahuivé.

 

The speakers of this language refer to it as fáh⁴jmii⁴², which probably means ‘plain (i.e., straightforward) speech’.
