Totonac/Spanish/English Dictionary (Web Resources)
Title: Totonac/Spanish/English Dictionary
Author: Carolym J. MacKay and Frank R. Trechsel
Abstract: The goal of this website is to make available information about three endangered languages of Mexico. Misantla Totonac and Pisaflores Tepehua belong to the Totonac-Tepehua language family, while the Veneto language of Chipilo, Mexico has its origins in Segusino, Treviso, Italy. We have been researching these languages for many years and are trying to make the data we have collected accessible to anyone who might be interested.

An Alternative Reconstruction of Proto-Totonac-Tepehua (Article)
Title: An Alternative Reconstruction of Proto-Totonac-Tepehua
Author: Carolyn J. MacKay
Author: Frank R. Trechsel
Abstract: This paper presents a reconstruction of the phonological inventory of Proto-Totonac-Tepehua (PTT) that differs significantly from previous reconstructions. The chief difference is that the PTT inventory proposed here includes a series of glottalized stops and affricates and does not include a series of laryngealized vowels. It is argued that it is easier to explain the correspondences among cognates in the Totonac and Tepehua languages if the protolanguage includes a series of glottalized stops and affricates. The diachronic changes that are required to account for the distribution of glottalized consonants in the Tepehua languages and laryngealized vowels in the Totonac languages are more natural and less marked under this proposal than under the alternative proposals involving laryngealized vowels in PTT.

Abstract: En este trabajo proponemos una reconstrucción del inventario fonémico del protototonaco-tepehua (ptt). La familia totonaco-tepehua se encuentra en la parte central de México en la región que incluye parte de tres estados –el sur de Hidalgo, la Sierra Norte de Puebla y el noroeste de Veracruz. La familia está constituida por dos ramas: la totonaca, que cuenta con unos 244 033 hablantes, y la tepehua, con unos 8868 hablantes (inegi 2010). El enfoque principal de este trabajo es proponer que la protolengua incluía una serie de oclusivas y africadas glotalizadas y que no incluía una serie de vocales laringizadas. Además proponemos que el inventario fonémico del protototonaco-tepehua incluía un cierre glotal y una sola fricativa velar/posvelar.
