Description: The Mixtec materials in the ACLS collection consist mainly of three items in the "Mixtec" section of the finding aid. Radin's "Mixtec and Chinantec lexicon" is based on his own field work (found in the Paul Radin papers, listed separately in this guide) and other published work by Belmar. There is also an analysis of Mixtec tones and those of other neighboring language families by Jaime de Angulo, and a Spanish-Mixtec vocabulary assembled by McQuown and Swadesh. In the “Mexico” section of the finding aid, see “Comparative vocabularies of various Indian languages of Mexico,” which includes Mixtec vocabulary, and McQuown's “Phonemic systems of various Indian languages of Mexico,” which includes Mixtec information. In the “Zapotec” section of the finding aid, see de Angulo's “Estudio gramatical de las lenguas de la familia zapoteca,” which includes Mixtec information and ten ink sketches of maps showing linguistic groups, and de Angulo's “Zapotecan texts,” which includes Mixtec texts. Specific Mixtec languages identified above are based upon languages located in Radin's fieldwork.
