Mayaglot is a website focused on ideas and developments in modern Mayan language, education, and culture. Thoughtful contributions and the participation of people with affiliated interests are welcome, whether they are academic or amateur in nature.

I am interested in how the Mayan linguistic communities of today are adapting their languages to the modern world. A primary motivation of this site is to promote progress and enrichment through language learning, and this site will review and accept submissions in either English, Spanish, or Q’eqchi’ Mayan (the fastest growing of all the Mayan languages spoken today, and the only one–so far–in which I can do a defensible job of reviewing and commenting).

As a convenience and to make them more accessible, links to additional resources including language books, dictionaries and other educational materials for all modern Mayan languages will be added over time.

Maybe you have some thoughts on what might be interesting and useful for anyone who follows this site. Inquiries and submissions can be sent by email to
