A Grammar of Misantla Totonac
MacKay (applied linguistics, Ball State U.) analyzes the southernmost variety of Totonac, which is spoken in Veracruz, Mexico, in the area between Xalapa and Misantla. She presents the phonological structure and the most productive morphological processes, describes the inflection and derivation of all major word classes, and introduces grammatical agreement and word-order phenomena. She has not indexed her work. Annotation copyrighted by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
