Collection Descriptive Notes:
Roberta Montagu reads the Spanish words/expressions from the standard list, and native speakers (male and female) supply the Tzeltal equivalents.(The dialect specified here is "Tzeltal norteño".)
Collection Technical Notes:
Tapes may or may not be the original live recordings. Norman McQuown, in rearranging the Bachajón recordings, assigned Roman numerals to them, starting here with Nos. "I" and "II". In 1976 Franklin McCabe Lee tight-wound these tapes to improve their chances of preservation. WAVE files are now converted to MP3s.
