- Ch'ol language
Ch'ol (or Chol) is a member of the western branch of the Mayan language family used by the
Ch'ol peoplein the Mexican stateof Chiapas. There are two main dialects:
*Ch'ol of Tila spoken by 43,870 people of whom 10,000 are monolinguals in the villages of Tila, Vicente Guerrero, Chivalito and Limar in
* Ch'ol of Tumbalá spoken by 90,000 people of whom 30,000 are monolinguals in the villages of Tumbalá, Sabanilla, Misijá, Limar, Chivalita and Vicente Guerrero.
The Cholan branch of the Mayan languages is considered to be particularly conservative and Ch'ol along with its two closest relatives the
Ch'orti' languageof Guatemalaand Honduras, and the Chontal Maya languageof Tabascoare believed to be the modern languages that best reflect their relationship with the Classic Maya language.
Ch'ol-language programming is carried by the CDI's radio station
XEXPUJ-AM, broadcasting from Xpujil, Campeche.
