Norman McQuown and several (male) colleagues read the Spanish words from the standard vocabulary list, and a number of native speakers (male and female) from Amatenango (del Valle) in Chiapas supply the Tzeltal equivalents.

Tapes are the original field recordings. Norman McQuown assigned Roman numerals ("I" to "XIV") to the Amatenango interviews of 1957-58. A further interview of Consultant #489 was recorded after a Tzotzil interview of 8/28/58 on the same tape, so did not get a Roman numeral. Here that interview is given the number "16". WAVE files are now converted to MP3s.
