MEDIA REVIEWS
Beyond the impressive lexical content of their work, the compilers of the Hocaba dictionary have created a valuable grammatical tool. A mirror of modern life in Yucatan. A significant historical contribution to Maya studies by recording this information before it was marginalized. " Ethnography"
"
Enjoyable to read. Ethnographic and historic bits and pieces of Maya life are found in the subtle ways the roots take o meanings through inflections and usage. The grammatical section is daunting in its complexity but rewards careful reading with more insight into Maya thought. " Journal of Anthropological Research"
"
"The first comprehensive dictionary of a contemporary dialect of Yucatec Maya. It surpasses the Cordemex in containing sophisticated grammatical analyses for each entry, presented as roots and stems, each identified by word class. It takes its place alongside the Itzaj Maya dictionary of Hofling and Tesucun as another outstanding contribution to the documentation of Yucatecan Mayan languages. Both the casual reader and the deliberate scholar will find a wealth of information in this volume."--Anthropological Linguistics


"Great help to those interested in learning the structure, formation, sounds, and proper use of the language."--BYU Studies
