Otomi Translations

The Mesoamerican languages belong to 6 major families – Mayan, Oto-Mangue, Mixe–Zoque, Totonacan, Uto-Aztecan, and Chibchan languages. Otomi is an Oto-Manguean language spoken by about 240,000 people in central Mexico, especially in the states of México, Puebla, Veracruz, Hidalgo, Guanajuato, Querétaro, Tlaxcala and Michoacán.

Otomi is the official language of Mexico. One of the most commonly used native languages in Mexico is Nahuatl.

Like all other Oto-Manguean languages, Otomi is a tonal language, and most varieties distinguish three tones. Nouns phrases are marked only for possessor; the plural number is marked with a definite article and a verbal suffix, and some dialects keep dual number marking. There is no case marking. Verb morphology is either fusional or agglutinating, depending on the analysis. In verb inflection, infixation, consonant mutation, and apocope are prominent processes. The number of irregular verbs is large. A class of morphemes cross-references the grammatical subject in a sentence. These morphemes can be analyzed as either proclitics or prefixes and marks for tense, aspect, and mood. Verbs are inflected for either direct object or dative object (but not for both simultaneously) by suffixes. Grammar also distinguishes between inclusive ‘we’ and exclusive ‘we.’ Also, there is an explicit usage of 1st person with no intransitive verbs.  Such vital information related to language and linguistics is discussed in a book by Jeanette Sakel.

Otomi; The Old Language of Mexico:

A language of around 240 000 people, Otomi is spoken in the central altiplano region of Mexico. Belonging to the Otopamean language family, this tonal language of indigenous people has distinctive characteristics in terms of tone analysis, grammar, article, vocabulary, prefixes, suffixes, palatal Nasal, and even intransitive verb usage.

It is composed of 9 languages that are not mutually intelligible. Therefore it is, in effect, a Dialect Continuum. The word Hñähñu has been proposed as an endonym, but since it represents the usage of a single dialect, it has not gained wide currency. Linguists have classified the Modern dialects into three dialect areas: the Northwestern dialects spoken in Querétaro, Hidalgo, and Guanajuato; the Southwestern dialects spoken in the State of Mexico; and the Eastern dialects or highland dialects spoken in the highlands of Veracruz, Puebla, and eastern Hidalgo and villages in Tlaxcala and Mexico states. “Extinción y pérdida de las lenguas” by Nilda Mercado Baigorria could help you know more.

The Oto-Manguean language stock is a group of related languages or 20th Century language families of Mexico. It is the most extensive language stock in Mexico, followed by musical traditions, religious tradition, political agitation, and European style instruments description.

Before the Spanish conquest, Otomi was more popular with many native speakers living in villages. Indians were also present in the area, and they spoke Nahuatl. It was spoken far and wide during the pre-colonial period before the 16th Century. The Otomi spoken in the colonial time was known as Classic Otomi.

Today, in the twenty-first century, the most significant number of speakers is concentrated in the Velle de Mezquital area of Hidalgo. In the 18th century, Hidalgo’s economy depended upon mining, agriculture, and similar resources; however, with migratory patterns shifting, Otomi speakers can be found in other parts of Mexico and the US in today’s world.

According to SIL international Ethnologue, there are 9 separate Otomi languages. Like every language family, the indigenous language family also has variety in terms of dialect. The singular and plural forms used in Quer Taro and Mezquital are relatively new. Spanish and Nahuatl loan words can be found in Otomi. Historical studies have shown that the Spanish loan words were incorporated after or during the colonial period. For more knowledge, read the book “Loanwords in the World’s Languages: A Comparative Handbook” by Victoria Torquemada as one of its authors.

Zenjua Ki which means I salute you.

Yes. There are many. But the most popular one is Google translate. It is used by millions of people every day for short translations. It translates by automatically recognizing the typed language and will translate it into your desired one.

A universal translator is a concept device that potentially allows us to translate any language into each other instantly, even without prior knowledge.

The way such a device could extrapolate and interpret a totally ‘exotic’ language is still – as of 2020 – a mystery, and so there is no clue that such a device could be produced soon.

DeepL Translate is the world’s most accurate translator. The resulting translation is accurate in the grammar and meaning and in reproducing the “style” and “tone” of the original sentence.  Though there are many other available like FluentU, this is considered the most accurate as it can translate the languages used in musical traditions and religious traditions.

The Otomi are an indigenous people of Mexico inhabiting the central Mexican Plateau (Altiplano) region. The Otomi are indigenous people of Mexico that inhabit a discontinuous territory in central Mexico in political agitation.

In the 20th Century

In the 20th century, Mexico City’s population exploded, growing to 600,000 in 1921, mainly due to rural migration during the Mexican Revolution.  In the second half of the 20th century, the city experienced additional rapid growth, primarily fueled by domestic migration.

At the beginning of the twenty-first century, Mexico City stands as the country’s economic, cultural, and transportation, with 20 million people living in its metropolitan area.

In Yaron Matras; Jeanette Sakel (eds.). Grammatical Borrowing in Cross-Linguistic Perspective:

The book contains 30 descriptive chapters dealing with a specific language contact situation. The chapters follow a uniform organization format, the narrative version of a standard comprehensive questionnaire previously distributed to all authors. The questionnaire systematically targets the possibility of contact influence/grammatical borrowing in a full range of categories. The uniform structure facilitates a comparison among the chapters and the languages covered.

The introduction describes the setup of the questionnaire and the methodology of the approach, along with a survey of the difficulties of sampling in contact linguistics. Two evaluative chapters, each authored by one of the co-editors, draw general conclusions from the volume (one in relation to borrowed grammatical categories and meaningful hierarchies, the other with regard to the distribution of Matter and Pattern replication).

History of Indian People of Mihoacthe Otomi and Mazahua

One of thin the historiography deals with the history of the Indian people of Mihoacthe Otomi and Mazahua, located on the eastern side of the state. In a way, the Tarascan or Purepecha strong presence that still exists in many parts of the state, and the enormous task of evangelization of Vasco de Quiroga in that vast diocese, determined researchers to address these issues instead of other ethnic minorities.

Based on the Franciscan chronicles and geographic relationships of the 16th century, relying on unpublished documents from local and foreign literature in the fifteenth, 16th century, and seventeenth centuries, this article reconstructs the history of Eastern Otomi and Mazahua Michoacan before the Conquest and after. The study highlights the arrival of the two groups to the “Michoaque” territory in the mid-fifteenth century and the role both played during the military conquest undertaken by the Spanish in 1522.

It also examines the influence exerted upon them by the Franciscan evangelization due to political agitation, the different productive activities in which they were involved, and the strategies they used to maintain control of their territory and defend their identity.
