This dictionary will be a continuously expanding, online, searchable, and (eventually) trilingual dictionary (Mayan-Spanish-English) that includes early (colonial) and modern Mayan (endangered) languages. Currently, our focus is Yucatec Mayan. We hope to add Ch’olan and other Mayan languages, as well, along with glyphic representations of words.

The dictionary’s databases include fields that support a wide range of orthographies and sources, so that users will most easily be able retrieve a rich array of information, including translations into various languages (all authored by native speakers) and examples of usage in excerpts from historical documents from New Spain.
