Offered by Stanislaus State, Nahuatl studies on Zoom with Professor T. Tezozomoc Sandoval is a cultural experience in itself. The study group examines the rules of classical, Nahuatl grammar and also 16th and 17th Century Nahuatl documents. Nahuatl is one of the original languages of Mexico and the most spoken indigenous languages up to this day. Some Nahuatl original words that are part of Mexican Spanish are: tocayoh, chiquihuite, pozole, papalote, popote, mole, chapulin, taco, molcajete, tamale, guacamole, and so many others. The study group also explores contemporary Nahuatl songs. Of special importance, however, is the “in xochitl in cuicatl” (flower and song) ancient Mexican poetry found in the Cantares Mexicanos and the Romances de Los Señores de la Nueva España and other sources. Study groups are held on Zoom every Sunday from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and on Thursdays from 6 to 7:30 p.m. until Sunday, May 30. Visit the event website to register and receive a Zoom link. There is no cost to participate.
