Today, Mexico is the biggest Spanish-speaking country in the world—but that wasn’t always the case. In fact, Mexico is one of the most language-rich countries on the planet, with linguists recognizing more than 300 languages indigenous to the Mesoamerican nation. The country’s name comes from the Nahuatl word Mēxihco, the heartland of the Aztec Empire, and indeed, Nahuatl’s influence across the land has been immense. Several Nahuatl languages exist, and today we’re focusing on Central Huasteca Nahuatl.
Nahuatl is not really a single language—it’s more like a language family of several related languages, some of which are so different that speakers can’t understand one another. As a group, Nahuatl boasts more than 1.7 million native speakers, with the biggest Nahua language, Huasteca Nahuatl, accounting for around a million. Huasteca Nahuatl is further divided into Eastern Huasteca Nahuatl, Central Huasteca Nahuatl, and Western Huasteca Nahuatl, with the central variety claiming around 200,000 native speakers. At TranslationServices.com, we proudly offer translation services specifically dedicated to Central Huasteca Nahuatl.

Taking a closer look at Central Huasteca Nahuatl
Huasteca Nahuatl is spoken in the region of central Mexico known as La Huasteca, the homeland of the Mayan Huastec people. Today, Huasteca Nahuatl speakers vastly outnumber speakers of the Mayan Huastec language, spread across Hidalgo, Veracruz, San Luis Potosí, and other states. Central Huasteca Nahuatl speakers are found around the center of the region, sharing high mutual intelligibility with the eastern and western variants. However, all three Huasteca Nahuatl varieties have separate orthographies.
Central Huasteca Nahuatl (and all other Nahuatl languages) are part of the Uto–Aztecan language family, specifically occupying the Aztecan branch, which consists mostly of Nahuatl languages. If you’re interested in learning Central Huasteca Nahuatl, you’re not in for an easy ride: the language’s complex grammar includes a great deal of inflection, with verbs changing to reflect the subject, object, and direct object—on top of the markers for tense, aspect, and mood. Nouns show possession through prefixes indicating the person, and unpossessed nouns take a special absolutive suffix. Possessed and unpossessed nouns also have different plural suffixes. Central Huasteca Nahuatl speakers also need to consider politeness when they speak, as the language features an honorific version for several pronouns. With a base-20 counting system, even numbers in Central Huasteca Nahuatl are complex. But not to worry—it’s all second nature for our native-speaking translators.
