Mayan Language

In the Mayan culture, there are about 30 known different languages still spoke today by some. The top two languages are Yucatecan and Cholan. No city has the same language as another. The Yucatecan language has a few main branches:Yucatec, Itza, Mopan, and Lacadon. The Cholan has Chol, Chontal, Chorti, Cholti. Another language with some importance is the Tzetalan language. The Mayans mostly wrote in heiroglyphs, which historians believe they were written in Cholan rather than Yucatecan. We can not prove it for none of these languages are spoken or written today.

what you are looking for is the key to open the mayan's doors. Communication is the key.

If the language isn't used today how can some still use it. There is a contradiction in the beginning and at the end. Who would speak this language today??

YOU ARE SO STUPID, IN THE FIRST PART OF YOUR POST YOU SAID THAT SOME OF THE LANGUAGES ARE STILL SPOKEN TODAY AND AT THE END YOU SAID THAT THEY WEREN'T. YOU SUCK. CORRECT YOUR INFORMATION.
